Our people make us exceptional

A culture that champions ideas, promotes growth and rewards results

The DRW approach is simple: tenure, experience and titles don’t matter as much as ideas, execution and results. We believe in creating opportunity to take on more complex problems, more interesting projects and more specialized skills. Our focus on performance doesn’t crowd out camaraderie. It’s a results-driven environment and everyone works hard, and it’s a place where friendships grow and respect is the norm. 

At DRW, you’ll work alongside smart, motivated people with diverse backgrounds at tech startups and on Wall Street, in hedge funds and academia—but that isn’t the only thing that sets us apart. It’s also our commitment to bringing on people who readily make themselves available to colleagues, actively seek challenges to their assumptions, and consistently choose to do the right thing.

DRW is genuinely a meritocracy. As a firm, we reward new ideas and divergent thinking. I’ve seen it firsthand, and it is one of the reasons why I enjoy working here.
