Software Engineer II - Investor Communications

  • At PEAK6, we are redefining what it means to be an investment firm. We are driven to see solutions others don't and capitalize on opportunities others miss. We operate with a focused, entrepreneurial drive and push ourselves to think differently. Unconfined by market or industry, this approach has helped us become the diverse range of successful businesses we are today, spanning proprietary trading, bespoke clearing solutions, growth capital and e-sports.

Working in tech at PEAK6 means that you’ll always be presented with a variety of new possibilities as you continue to enhance your skills. 

    We use an agile approach with 2-week sprints, deliverables, and demos, but always reserve time for technical debt, quality assurance, and experimentation. We’re organized in small “feature teams”, each with its own feature captain and direct relationship with product management.
