WE'RE A TEAM OF INDUSTRY VETERANS WITH THE SPIRIT OF A START-UP
At OptionsHouse, we offer the best of both worlds: A workplace with experienced, accomplished leaders, and a business driven by entrepreneurial ideas. Our executive team is accessible. Opinions are valued. Our office overlooking the Chicago River is designed for innovation and collaboration - from stand-up conference rooms to sofas where employees break out for discussion. OptionsHouse is a place where trying new things is not just encouraged but required.
We’re recruiting builders and innovators for our growing business. If you have experience in the online trading industry and have a passion for making a difference, we want you. If you’re newer to the field and share our fire, let’s talk. Whatever your expertise, we want to talk with you.
OptionsHouse is a respected, established leader in online retail brokerage services. Since 2005, OptionsHouse has offered no-hassle, affordable online trades, optimized for today’s mobile world through superior technology.
It’s an exciting time to work here. In 2014, General Atlantic, a global growth equity firm, acquired OptionsHouse from PEAK6 and separately acquired Chicago-based online trading firm, tradeMONSTER. The two companies combined in January of 2015 and now benefit from the depth and breadth of talent and expertise at each firm. The combined company retained the name OptionsHouse. OptionsHouse is a subsidiary of Aperture Group, LLC.
We’re bigger now, but we’re still creative and agile. In designing the post-merger home for OptionsHouse, we created a casual, comfortable workspace to drive great ideas, big and small.
It’s all about the customer. We believe in fast response, continuous improvement and cutting-edge innovation to serve our customers. We work each day to enhance the tools and resources our customers need to buy and sell stocks and options by low-cost, fast and secure means - whether on desktop, tablet or smartphone.
Integrity is our anchor. The values upon which OptionsHouse was built remain at the core of our operation. We expect our employees to do the right thing.
WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK HERE
Take ownership and thrive. Our people are self-motivated and confident, with a desire to make a difference. At OptionsHouse, there’s no hand-holding or micro-managing. Employees are given the autonomy to make decisions and drive business impact.
Discuss and solve problems together. We’re passionately committed to continuous innovation and exceeding the expectations of our customers. A spirit of collaboration supports our mission. We believe in direct conversation, embracing the good and the bad.
Suits not required. OptionsHouse has a relaxed dress code. We don’t believe you have to dress in a suit to be professional, but we do care about image. That means clothing that is comfortable and practical for the job you perform.
It’s OK to relax. Taking a break to play foosball or to enjoy a cup of coffee with a co-worker is not only allowed - it’s encouraged! Sitting all day at a desk doesn’t always spark creativity, so we provide different break-out spaces at OptionsHouse for more casual conversations.
