Our people make us exceptional

A culture that champions ideas, promotes growth and rewards results

We offer the best of both worlds: the opportunity and spirit of a startup and the benefits and stability of an established, experienced firm. DRW runs as a true meritocracy that empowers our more than 600 team members around the world to realize their personal and professional goals. If you join our team, we'll support you as you work to create your own success.

We're proud of our culture and consider it a key driver of how we’ve gotten to where we are. As we’ve grown, we have worked hard to maintain an entrepreneurial and flexible environment. Our team members are encouraged to contribute ideas and challenge the status quo every day. We believe that you should have passion for your work—and have fun while you’re doing it.

“We have one of the best training programs for entry level traders, which was especially important to me as someone with a non-finance background.”
Jillian, Trader

Meet Jillian. She’s a trader with a degree in electrical and computer engineering and has worked on multiple trading desks since joining DRW in 2008. She credits her mentors with helping her learn and grow so quickly—and encouraging her to push herself.

There is a mutual respect among employees here that is unique...respect for differences of opinion and technique, and a level of trust among engineers, traders and management.
Ashton, Software Engineer

Meet Ashton. An accomplished fencer trained in 15th century Italian longsword techniques, he credits this practice with the mental clarity he needs to perform in an industry that moves quickly and requires rapid decision-making.

I love working here because of the entrepreneurial nature of the company – new ideas are thoroughly considered.
Cyrus, Trader

Meet Cyrus. He’s an experienced trader who joined DRW in 2014 and likes the idea generation that he sees every day. Even more, he likes the effort that goes into ensuring good ideas have a chance to be implemented.

I like that DRW doesn’t view technology as overhead, but rather an important investment. Of course, I love the catered breakfast and lunch, company outings and other perks too!
Michelle, Financial Application Engineer

Meet Michelle. She’s been part of the technology team since 2008 and is also a founding member of the DRW photography club. As a busy mom, she appreciates the social clubs that make it easier for her to enjoy her hobbies and connect with colleagues.

The firm truly values and rewards talented individuals, and provides a home—and tremendous opportunity—for a wide array of interests and styles.
Aditya, Quantitative Trader

Meet Aditya. A Duke alum and diehard fan of Washington D.C. teams, he pursues his love of sports as part of company-sponsored soccer and beach volleyball teams, spending most of his time outside of work hanging out with people he’s met here.
