Working at Tower means collaborating with bright minds from around the world to create cutting edge-technology and tackle challenging technical problems. We’re engineers and pioneers who use scientific principles to identify market opportunities and who think Mondays look better in jeans and a t-shirt than in a suit and tie.

  • Solving problems by providing timely support for production systems
  • Devising ways to architect and develop solutions
  • Making market observations and conducting post-trade analysis

Who you are:

You are talented, driven, and hungry for a challenge. You believe that there’s no limit to what we can accomplish together in a creative, collaborative setting which pairs passion with brilliance. If you refuse to settle for a career that offers anything less, we want to meet you! 

Additional requirements include:

  • A Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, or related fields
  • 0-2 years of experience
  • Proficient in an object-oriented programming language (C++ and Python preferred)
  • A working knowledge of Linux/Unix 
  • Past industry experience (a plus)
  • Experience as a Teaching Assistant and/or participation in relevant Olympiads (a plus)
  • Strong problem-solving abilities
  • A passion for new technologies and ideas
  • The ability to manage multiple tasks in a fast-paced environment
  • Strong communication skills

Financial experience is not required, but interest in financial markets is a plus.

Anticipated annual base salary range $120-200,000, plus eligible for discretionary bonus
