Tower Research Capital

Tower is always looking for exceptional people to join our team. 

Tower Research Capital has assembled a world-class team from the top educational and research insitutions, and is currently hiring for a number of challenging positions across quantitative trading, engineering, and support functions.

A career with Tower is a chance to not only become an expert in the quantitative trading industry, but to shape its future alongside the people who are building it from the ground up. Our flat organizational structure means that all teams interact closely with Tower management and have the opportunity to influence new projects.

About Us

Founded in 1998 by Mark Gorton, Tower Research Capital is a trading and technology company that has built some of the fastest, most sophisticated electronic trading platforms in the world.


Our Founder

In addition to Tower, Mark has launched a diverse constellation of companies and green advocacy organizations including LimeWire and OpenPlans.  Prior to founding Tower, Mark worked as a fixed income proprietary trader at Credit Suisse First Boston. He began his career as an engineer at Martin Marietta, specializing in digital signal processing and speech recognition.  Mark graduated from Yale University with a B.S. in electrical engineering and earned an M.S. in electrical engineering from Stanford University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.


What We Do

Our internal trading teams are independent from one another, enjoying autonomy while accessing shared technology resources such as hardware, software, and connectivity as well as resources such as business management, legal, compliance, and risk management.

At the heart of operations is our core engineering team, which owns the architecture, implementation and optimization of the trading platform itself.  This includes developing systems and tools to access market data, perform trend analysis, run trading simulations, order entry and management, real-time trade support, risk management and post-trade services.

Working together, our organization builds technology and deploys our diverse automated and quantitative strategies across a broad range of asset classes in global markets around the clock.


Our Culture

The greatest perk about working at Tower is having the freedom and opportunity to use your talent.  

Entrepreneurial spirit is embedded in our DNA.  Working here means that in collaboration with the bright minds around you, you will be expected to tackle challenges old and new by thinking and learning at every step of the way.
