Job Description

About the Position

We are looking to hire an experienced Equity Options Floor Trader who can price and trade in a fast-paced environment, manage risk, maintain relationships with floor brokers, and coordinate floor trading with electronic trading teams.

You will join our floor trading team in Chicago but communicate daily with the New York Equity Options desk. We’ll depend on you to relay what happens in real time on the floor, as well as what kinds of tools or systems you’ll need to make your work more effective.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about this line of work and is eager to make an immediate impact. While this role is largely independent, you’ll have opportunities to collaborate with the wider options team and other floor traders.

Staying competitive as we’ve grown has required constant invention — of new trading strategies, technology, and processes. We’ve found this is easier when you hire humble, kind people. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new function of our firm’s work, and we’ll endeavor to put your quick-thinking and problem-solving skills to good use.

About You

  • 5+ years of experience in a floor trading role with a focus in either equities or SPX
  • Highly analytical thinker and proficient in probability and statistics
  • Ability to build strong relationships and rapport with other members on the floor
  • Reliable and flexible team player with a positive attitude
  • Comfortable working and making decisions in a fast-paced environment
  • Motivated self-starter who can handle competing priorities
  • Describes detailed problems with brevity and accuracy
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Eager to learn, adaptive, responsible
  • Fluency in English is required
