In order to provide the best online trading experience in the world, Interactive Brokers software, systems, and other crucial business technology must be maintained, monitored and supported at all times and locations across the globe with vigilance, tenacity and precision. To achieve that goal, Interactive Brokers maintains a small team of cross-trained and exceptionally responsible individuals unbound to one specific skill or discipline. With bushido spirit, these operators develop their own tools, systems and solutions to ensure the correct function of the myriad systems encompassing Interactive Brokers platform. The operators gain experience and provide additional value working under the expert direction of senior trade, skill and industry experts to resolve complex issues with specific technology, hardware and software components.
On occasion Interactive Brokers chooses to offer this position to new talent. This candidate is a touche-a-tout Renaissance man (or woman) focused on the future of both themselves and their business, energized when challenges arise; victorious when mettle is tested. Inside this most critical department every team member is equally responsible. Part ‘pilot’, part ‘mechanic’ and part ‘air traffic controller’, operators work through a flexible rotating shift. Bound together, they provide an unending chain of critical support and assistance each hour of every day throughout the year.
For the past two decades Interactive Brokers has rewritten the book on how electronic trading and how Wall Street in general operated as it grew into the largest US Broker (measured by trades). This small staff continues to be on the leading edge of those changes as it moves toward the future.
