Tower Research Capital LLC – Why Work With Us?


Tower Research Capital LLC is a computerized trading firm headquartered in New York City.

Our internal trading teams are independent from one another, enjoying autonomy while accessing shared technology resources such as hardware, software, and connectivity as well as resources such as business management, legal, compliance, and risk management.

At the heart of operations is our core engineering team, which owns the architecture, implementation and optimization of the trading platform itself.  This includes developing systems and tools to access market data, perform trend analysis, run trading simulations, order entry and management, real-time trade support, risk management and post-trade services.

Working together, our organization builds technology and deploys our diverse automated and quantitative strategies across a broad range of asset classes in global markets around the clock.

Tower and its affiliates trade multiple asset classes on over 100 venues worldwide.

    I have been working at Tower Research Capital LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ignore the 1 star reviews. They are probably coming from the same disgruntled employee and do not reflect Tower accurately

    This is my honest review:

    - What were GREAT benefits are now VERY GOOD (took a small step down) but still probably better than you'll find elsewhere.
    - The company has transformed but the talented people working on cutting edge tech are still around
    - Flexible
    - Pay is really good

    Cons

    - Clearly some teams can be worse than others, you won't know until you join
    - Sometimes working across teams can be a bit difficult

    Advice to Management

    - Stay focus and keep a strategy
