Why you?ll love it
Think Finance: Brooks Brothers, trading floors, Bloomberg terminals, Wall Street, and cash come to mind, right? Now think Technology: Mac Computers, t-shirts, Silicon Alley, exercise balls, and there may or may not be a kegerator involved.
These seemingly opposite worlds collide to make up SecondMarket?s slightly schizophrenic but loveable DNA. Working at SecondMarket and being a part of the team means that on any given day, you may be in a meeting with a ?reformed? Wall Street investment banker, who also happens to be our founder and CEO, Barry Silbert, and your next meeting may consist of hearing about the latest technologies with our extremely talented engineering team.
We?re headquartered in New York City, and we all have a similar New Yorker?s mindset: fast-paced, relentless and dynamic. The working environment here is extremely agile, and we?re not afraid to innovate, re-create, or pivot quickly, which is where you?ll see us skew towards Silicon Valley/Alley more than Wall Street. Most importantly, we work really hard, but we play just as hard. And as different as our backgrounds may be, all of us at SecondMarket live by the same core values:
Restore and renew trust in the financial markets
Be intellectually curious
Be passionate about your work
Be a mentor
Ultimately, we all believe that we are building and creating something extraordinary. And we?re having a lot of fun doing it.
