Pros & Cons

  • Working within a talented team to tackle challenging problems.
  • The company culture is amazing. It feels like a family due to all the events and dinners the company sets up.
  • The ability to work on challenging problems with super friendly and smart people combined with an awesome outside of work culture.
  • Great culture.
  • Lots of responsibility, autonomy, and the opportunity to work overseas for a period of time.
  • People here are incredibly smart and always switched on so it can sometimes be intimidating.
  • You are given a huge amount of responsibility from the first day and the fast pace means that you need to work really hard (but your efforts are compensated).
  • High paced work environment can be tiring.
  • Can get intense at times.

Culture

Culture
Structure is pretty flat with not a lot of defined hierarchy, although in practice more experienced traders will likely get their ideas prioritised over others. The culture is generally pretty collaborative, relaxed, and people are happy to let their hair loose outside work.

My work changes drastically day to day depending on what features I am working on. The people I work with change every day and my role requires a hands-on approach a lot of the time.

Recruitment
It's long and tough, but the interviewers are keen to see you do well and give tips here and there. They also give great feedback on how you went. Generally problem solving questions, with numerical skills also being tested. Brush up on mental arithmetic, be able to explain what you're thinking when solving problems, that way the interviewer can see what you're doing, as they'll help you out a bit if they think you're going down the wrong direction.
