Why you?ll love it
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.

Where you?ll work
A Better Market?
We?re empowering entrepreneurs by reinventing the modern stock market and redefining the modern company. We?re enabling companies to manage liquidity, communicate with key stakeholders and raise capital through products that give control to companies, not to Wall Street. We?re changing the market, so entrepreneurs can change the world.
?for the Best Companies
A SecondMarket company is dynamic, nimble, innovative, and wants to change the world through its products and long-term vision. A SecondMarket company wants the flexibility of a private startup with the capital access of a public multinational. A SecondMarket company understands that the public markets have permanently changed and no longer serve the needs of today?s entrepreneurs.
Not a public company. Not a private company. A SecondMarket company.
SecondMarket?s shareholders include FirstMark Capital, The Social+Capital Partnership L.P, Li Ka-Shing Foundation, Dunearn, a subsidiary of (Singapore) Temasek Holdings, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), and SVB Financial Group (Nasdaq: SIVB).
