    Great place to work

    Current Employee - Software Engineering in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Software Engineering in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at DRW Trading full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great compensation, nice perks and benefits. Job is extremely fast-paced, organisation is quite meritocratic. No-BS mentality. Some of the people are extremely smart but not all. Most people are street-smart rather than book smart.

    Cons

    Very hard work, minimal collaboration between groups, occasionally this leads to issues / conflicts, but nothing serious. Really very few cons. Company lacks a strong quantitative culture, it retains the old floor trading mentality although the quality of software engineers is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally a good place to work, work harder to attract quantitative talent.

    Trader Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at DRW Trading.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by email to set up a phone interview with a trader analyst at the firm. The phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and consisted of questions about my resume and math questions. I was then invited to a super day in Chicago. They paid for everything and it was a great experience. I interviewed 4 employees in 1:1 interviews. Each interview lasted 30-40 minutes. The 1:1 interviews were all very different. Some ask math and probability questions while others were more focused on fit questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me option prices for call options stuck at 110,120,130, and 140 for an asset at 100 so that there is no arbitrage. I was not sure how to construct the market quickly.   View Answer
