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.

*We are unable to provide visa sponsorship either now or in the future. 

Join PEAK6 as a Senior UI Developer and see your work in action, immediately. Our team is working on a new cutting-edge initiative that will help infuse robust analytical capabilities into daily work operations such as performance management and communication/collaboration tools. Through this consumer driven and employee first business venture we will help create better data transparency and visualizations for individuals.

What you’ll do all day:

  • Make an impact. At PEAK6, the work you do will help in tangible ways. You’ll create front-end applications that enable the organization to work smarter and faster, while broadening our impact on how people use data. 
  • Collaborate. The floor is always open for great ideas. We love to collaborate, share ideas and get different perspectives. You’ll work with smart people who value smart ideas and strong opinions. 
  • Work in a fast-paced environment. You’ll work tirelessly with your teammates to achieve timely deliverables with high performance, scalability, and reliability of service. You’ll juggle frameworks, hand-code without them, all in our dynamic, multi-tasking environment.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Is self-directed. You’re driven, motivated, and eager to succeed. 
  • Has an insatiable curiosity. You love solving problems and learning new things. You’re resourceful, inquisitive, and proactive in gaining knowledge.
  • Is flexible. You’re comfortable trying new things, and you think there’s no such thing as one right way
  • Is resourceful. You’re scrappy and will do what it takes to achieve results. You understand that calculated risk is necessary in making meaningful changes, and impact how you operate. Additionally, you possess an entrepreneurial mindset and find building things from the ground up exciting and rewarding. You embrace the challenges and encourage others to find creative solutions. 
  • Operates with integrity. You always conduct yourself with honesty and operate ethically. You say what you mean, and mean what you say.

A few reasons why you might love us:

  • The team is great. You’ll work directly with the CTO on a small team who is as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You’ll be managed by people who care about you, and invest in your success. 
  • Your success will be recognized and appreciated. You’ll be able to see your direct impact on our growth. You won’t be just another cog in the wheel.
  • The work environment is amazing. Our office space is really cool, open, and sleek. We provide free beverages, snacks and have fun while working hard.

And a few reasons why you may not love us:

  • You don’t like change. This is not a job for someone who likes ‘predictable’. Our new business initiative demands flexible thinking and working in a fast paced and adaptable environment. 
  • You’re not the collaborative type. We’re solving pretty heady challenges. We bring ideas to the table and we work together to solve these challenges. If you’re looking to hide out and do your own thing, this might not be the right spot.

The skills you’ll need to succeed:

  • Expert level skills in all aspects of the presentation layer, front-technologies and frameworks like React.JS and Node.JS. 
  • Experience writing unit / integration tests for UI components preferred
  • Experience building demanding and performant UI components
  • Experience defining and leading web UI architectural direction
  • Experience in mentoring and establishing best practices
