Mission: Move first and never stop. Create and build solutions that drive efficiency, connectivity, and transparency in electronic trading.

Tradeweb – Why Work For Us?


We help traders trade better. Since 1998, we have been at the center of the electronification of the global government bond marketplace, creating solutions and applying technology that has lead the way for the evolution of Fixed Income, Derivative and ETF trading. We view clients as partners. We take the time to listen, develop relationships and work through their challenges together, finding ways to improve performance and trade efficiency. As an operator of electronic institutional, wholesale and retail trading platforms, we offer the most comprehensive range of fixed income market connectivity and trading technology. Our vast experience in sales and trading, back office, compliance, relevant technology and operations, equips us to see trends early and react quickly with solutions that help clients – at times before they even know they need them. 

Tradeweb attracts ambitious individuals who thrive in a fast paced, results-driven environment. We have an entrepreneurial-like culture, while still offering the benefits and perks of working for an established firm. We continue to grow rapidly, but are committed to maintaining our small-company feel where a culture of innovation, collaboration and collegiality are valued.  As part of our continued effort to promote diversity and inclusion for employees, we launched The Tradeweb Global Women’s Network, ensuring that all women have the appropriate support and access to all opportunities at Tradeweb.  We have a fairly flat organizational structure that provides employees direct access and engagement with senior management. We always keep it professional, but don’t be surprised if you see more shirts and vests than suits and ties around this office. 

At Tradeweb, we know that every employee has something important to say and we empower you to say it. Our employees are integral to our success and because of that, questions and ideas are encouraged at every level. 

Tradeweb fosters a culture of learning, community and consideration by offering our people training and workshop opportunities, generous benefits and chances for meaningful volunteerism. We have regular ‘Lunch and learns', bringing together employees across different departments to learn about other areas of business (over pizza, of course!) We have a growing mentorship program, connecting our bright young employees with our most esteemed and experienced managers. Through our Tradeweb Cares and Go Green programs employees can participate together in causes that they believe in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tradeweb in April 2018.

    Interview

    Prescreen call for about 30 minutes, then in-person interviews scheduled. They were flexible and offered to schedule all the interviews in 1 day. Met with 4 different team members in both office locations, including the person I would directly report to. Was told there would be a final decision by a certain date, and was notified of the rejection shortly after then. Would still consider working for the company despite not getting selected.
