PEAK6 Trading Experience

PEAK6 isn’t your typical trading firm — which is why this is anything but your typical trading experience.
PEAK6 Trading Experience is a new and unique, breakthrough program designed specifically to show women the immense opportunities in trading. That’s because we know women make outstanding traders, but there’s just not a lot of female traders in the field (yet). But we’re looking to change that. Starting with you!

We’re looking for students who:



You’re intellectually curious and genuinely interested in data. You ask ‘why’, and push to identify areas of improvement.



You’re driven to be the best. You challenge yourself by setting goals, beating them, and helping your teammates do the same. Your work ethic is legendary.



You use data to find new opportunities and take smart risks. You follow your instincts, but support your ideas with data.



You’re willing to challenge the status quo. You trust your instincts and will say what you think, even if it’s controversial. You’re a born leader.


Operate with integrity.
You always conduct yourself with honesty and operate ethically. You say what you mean, and mean what you say.

About PEAK6 Trading Experience

Our Trading Experience is designed to encourage smart, ambitious, competitive women to break the mold. To us, investing in women is a solid strategy. Which is why this experience is designed to do just that — it’s customized to introduce you to the basics of trading, help you see how empowering trading can be, and help you develop key skills that you’ll leverage throughout your career (even if you decide trading isn’t for you).

You’ll have an opportunity to interact & collaborate with real traders on a daily basis. So you can experience first-hand the level of collaboration and teamwork our traders embrace. And if you’re concerned about not having the right experience, don’t be — we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
