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. 

We operate with respect, curiosity and open minds. The people who thrive here share our belief that it’s not just what we do that matters–it's how we do it.  DRW is a place of high expectations, integrity, innovation and a willingness to challenge consensus. 

As a Data Engineer on our Unified Platform Data Management team, you will play an integral role in managing data used throughout the trade lifecycle. Data you will help oversee is relied on by researchers developing trading strategies, traders executing in markets globally, as well as users managing post-trade and risk.

  • Develop data solutions to support DRW’s continued growth in new markets and asset classes
  • Design, build and implement data pipelines
  • Improve data quality and monitoring using both proprietary and open-source tools
  • Manage large, centralized data sets as a super-user, and member of a larger technology organization

For this role, you should have:

  • 3+ years’ experience using Python and SQL
  • Prior experience writing ETL operations on large data sets
  • Familiarity with data quality control approaches and analysis
  • Exposure to financial markets and instruments
