"As a Ph.D. student, I researched the prevalence of latency arbitrage and studied the impact of different types of algorithmic trading strategies on investors. The more I learned about structural issues in U.S. equity markets, the more I realized certain market participants were profiting at the expense of ordinary investors. I joined IEX Group because I wanted to be part of the solution rather than contribute to the problem."
Head of Quantitative Research
"After a half decade in the tech industry, I decided to take a risk and transition into a career as a software engineer. I knew that with the career change, finding the right company for my first job as an engineer was critical. IEX Group has been the perfect place to start my new career – the team has been a great resource as I continue to learn and develop as an engineer, and infrastructure we’ve built over time has really helped me better understand what it takes to build stable and highly scalable tech infrastructure."
"After a great experience as a summer intern, I joined IEX Group full-time. Memorable projects hand-delivering IEX’s historic Form 1 application to be a national securities exchange to the SEC, and negotiating commercial agreements for the launch of IEX’s exciting new businesses. And until recently, I was completing my law degree at night while working full-time! It was a demanding undertaking, but it was made easier because of the support at IEX. My manager and colleagues supported me with their encouragement, by taking on my load when I studied for final exams and the NY bar exam, and by the examples of their own hard work toward their professional goals."
Associate General Counsel
"I was drawn to IEX Group for its different approach to thinking about financial markets. On the Ventures team, I’m in a unique position to carry the company’s mission and brand forward both within and beyond capital markets. I can deploy the cross-functional expertise I’ve developed as both a trader at a large bank and as an operator at various start-ups to play a role in shaping how we grow. I value the ability to make an impact, be entrepreneurial and work alongside extremely smart people."
"I was hesitant about staying in the financial industry, honestly. But the IEXers I met throughout the interview process were some of the smartest, most authentic people around. Six years later, it’s clear I made the right choice and landed at a company where I can really grow: I've gone from individual contributor to head of the Systems Reliability Engineering (SRE) team."
