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.

We are seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Unified Platform (UP) team.  UP consolidates data and technologies into a comprehensive solution, accelerating time to market. Optimizing decision-making and research, our platform simplifies implementing new ideas, enhancing our competitive edge. UP - Reference Data is responsible for DRW's instrument and organizational data models to create a ubiquitous domain throughout DRW. Their focus on interoperability allows the functional areas of the firm to connect, integrate, and coordinate without needing to collaborate on the meaning or definitions of the data. This team is looking for application software developers who can help with its challenges.

We work from high-level requirements where programmers are expected to gain an intimate understanding of the business. We strive for an environment where developers have the autonomy to pursue business solutions without arbitrary management constraints. We are a group of polyglots and technologists always seeking to find the right tool for each problem. Broadly, the development teams at DRW believe in rapid deployment and feedback, automated testing, and cohesive, transparent, lightly-coupled service architectures

  • Building systems with a constant focus on testing, reliability, scalability, and maintainability.
  • Designing, modeling, and programming in a variety of languages and technologies.
  • Working on legacy code as well as green field development.
  • Initiative driving projects to completion.
  • Learning and promoting new technologies with a focus on best practices.
  • Providing on-call support as needed.
  • Sometimes working alongside other developers on the same task.

Desirable Experience:

  • We are looking for strong developers of any stripe, but familiarity with the below will give candidates a leg up in working on our systems.
  • Multiple years of server-side development.
  • A solid understanding of micro-service architectures and CAP theorem.
  • A good understanding of functional paradigms and type theory.
  • Confident JVM knowledge
  • Confident Ruby (JRuby) and modern Java (17+) knowledge
