I have been working at Jump Trading full-time (More than a year)
- Compensation and benefits are excellent
- Tech side of things feels like a tech company
- Attending conferences / training is encouraged
- Friday lunches catered, and an onsite barista at Chicago office!
- Office lacks common areas, and so there's an eat-lunch-at-desk culture that seems hard to change
- There's a lack of good gyms or cafes in the area around 600 W Chicago
Advice to Management
I've worked here over a year and have never met the owners Billy and Paul! It would be nice if they could be encouraged to give a presentation or something occasionally.
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Jump Trading.
Apply through campus career service website. Got interview 1 weeks later. Talk briefly about the resume and research experience. Then coding question about implementing a simple algorithm. did not get an offer
