Join a leading fintech company that's democratizing finance for all.

Robinhood was founded on a simple idea: that our financial markets should be accessible to all. With customers at the heart of our decisions, Robinhood is lowering barriers and providing greater access to financial information. Together, we are building products and services that help create a financial system everyone can participate in.

As we continue to build...

We're seeking curious, growth minded thinkers to help shape our vision, structures and systems; playing a key-role as we launch into our ambitious future. If you're invigorated by our mission, values, and drive to change the world — we'd love to have you apply.

About the team + role

Our mission is to allow our customers to invest in whatever asset they want (equity, option, crypto), whenever they want (24 hours a day), and however they want at the best execution quality while ensuring market integrity.

We own critical services that facilitate the routing of trades to exchanges and market makers. Our Trade Routing infrastructure encompasses several critical components, including:

  • Trade Routing Service: This high availability, low latency, scalable service efficiently routes trades to exchanges & 3rd parties, while ensuring correctness and reliability.
  • Order Execution Management System (OEMS): Our OEMS enables Trading Ops to manage time-sensitive trading exceptions, which are essential for a smooth trading process and regulatory compliance.
  • Order Risk Checks System: This system enables risk management at the firm- wide level for assets, venues, and trading sessions.
  • Smart Order Router: Ensures the highest quality trade execution.
  • We're a fast-moving team that is the engine for innovation for the company! Our team brought extended hours trading and more recently 24 hour trading to the masses. Our charter is to further develop additional capabilities within the trading platform (including new assets, order types, and new execution partners), empowering product teams to introduce novel features for our customers.
