DRW is a diversified trading firm with over 3 decades of experience bringing sophisticated technology and exceptional people together to operate in markets around the world.  We value autonomy and the ability to quickly pivot to capture opportunities, so we operate using our own capital and trading at our own risk. 

Headquartered in Chicago with offices throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia, we trade a variety of asset classes including Fixed Income, ETFs, Equities, FX, Commodities and Energy across all major global markets. We have also leveraged our expertise and technology to expand into three non-traditional strategies: real estate, venture capital and cryptoassets. 

As a Relationship Manager, you’ll be responsible for cultivating and managing the firm’s direct trading counterparty relationships for our listed FICC trading business. You’ll be partnering with a seasoned and experienced trading team with industry leading market share to provide liquidity to institutional counterparties across a wide variety of listed products. You will also be responsible for “delivering the firm”, which will include cross-selling other areas of DRW’s trading business to your counterparty relationships (including ETFs and crypto-assets), uncovering new opportunities for partnership, and managing the overall trading experience, from onboarding through execution.
