Hello, we're PEAK6 Investments

PEAK6 is not your typical investment firm. We are a unique, smart and entrepreneurial firm that thinks differently. We see solutions others don’t, and we are driven to capitalize on opportunities others miss. This ambitious, entrepreneurial culture has helped us become the diverse range of successful businesses we are today.

Why Work with Us?

At PEAK6 we’re looking for wildly passionate, collaborative, and entrepreneurial minds to bring their best ideas to life with us. Every employee at PEAK6 has immense opportunities to collaborate, share their ideas, and shape the path of the different businesses in the firm. Here, your ideas are heard and your input is valued.

An Insider's view of PEAK6 Investments

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

This is very important and luckily, we feel it’s something attainable for our employees. We have a generous time off policy, in addition to other affiliated vacation perks and leave benefits.
For example, to help employees save time on conventional tasks, we offer complementary services in the office, such as manicures, massages, and yoga classes.

Associate HR Generalist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our developers are also a part of the decision-making process. We help our technologists take an interest in the business side of things - they know how the end product should work. Our developers know how the traders are going to use a product, and after a product is delivered, the developer stays involved –making things work efficently.

QA Development Lead

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a big focus on career growth, especially for those in technology. Because of our size, there are opportunities to prove yourself and rapidly increase your responsibility on a team. And because of Peak6’s culture of constantly trying new things, there are often opportunities to get in at the ground floor of new ventures in a leadership role

Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We organize “tech days” where employees are encouraged to work on tech projects of their choosing. Projects have ranged from mobile apps to Sega emulators to workflow improvements for our developers. Recently, tech days took the form of a more formal hackathon, in which technologists and traders teamed up to prototype several new trading tools.
