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 700 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.

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.

It’s the Goldilocks principle – DRW is just right. It’s not too big and bureaucratic and it’s not a startup with limited resources and big risk.
Brawnski, Senior Software Engineer

Meet Brawnski. A software engineer who has been with the firm since 2009, he has enjoyed poker games, Crossfit and motorcycle riding with his DRW colleagues over the years.

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.

I came to DRW straight out of college with no background in finance. Since then, I’ve been learning nonstop.
Elaine, Algorithmic Trading Researcher

Meet Elaine. She has put her computer science degree from MIT to use in all aspects of the business – from programming to trading to research. Working with fun, intelligent people from different backgrounds is one of her favorite parts of her job.

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.
