A bit about us:

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're seeking a Senior JavaScript/TypeScript Engineer to join our team to build new products and scale to more users. The position is focused on UI engineering but offers opportunity to work on API design and back-end code.

We are a small development team within DRW rebuilding existing applications from the ground up and creating completely new ones. These applications are mission-critical and used daily by our traders whom we work directly with. While our applications are used by a relatively small but growing set of users, the decisions made through them are very large. This is a chance to build quality applications using modern technology and practices. Our code is all written in the latest version of TypeScript and our applications are powered by React/Redux. We use gRPC-web for communication between our web-based applications and back-end APIs. Our applications are containerized with Docker and deployed to a Kubernetes cluster.
