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.

Our team cares deeply about preserving a respectful and diverse team culture.  We believe in choosing the right tech for the job even if that means learning something new or reviving something old.  We value business impact and outcomes over process, and we make decisions based on data.  We strive to adapt quickly as business priorities change. 

What you’ll do: 

  • Monitor and troubleshoot production jobs, drilling into issues requiring action
  • Work with subject matter experts, the data, and the code to identify the root cause of issues that arise
  • Consult with developers to determine appropriate courses of action and make suggestions for improvements to the system
