When you join Magnetar, you will work alongside individuals who are among the best in the business at what they do. We attract highly skilled, dedicated professionals who enjoy working across practices and executing innovative ideas.
Our culture is based on the core values of insight, integrity and passion. We have an intense level of intellectual curiosity, a profound passion for our work and care deeply about delivering results for the Firm and for each other. These qualities drive everything we do.
We seek to generate consistent performance across a variety of market conditions by identifying differentiated investment ideas that we believe can be developed into scalable businesses. We invest across four core pillars: Fixed Income, Energy, Quantitative, and Fundamental Strategies.
In addition to a competitive compensation package, we offer a broad range of employer benefits. These include: premium employer-subsidized healthcare coverage (PPO), dental, and vision coverage for employees and dependents. Additional benefits include healthcare and commuter flexible spending accounts, 401(k) retirement plan with partial company match, life insurance and paid maternity and paternity leave.
We know how important healthy choices are to our employees. We offer an onsite gym in our Evanston office (and subsidized memberships for other office locations), kitchens with healthy snacks, and health-conscious, catered lunches daily at no cost to our employers.
Magnetar employees are passionate about philanthropy and there are plenty of ways for employees to give back through the Magnetar Academy (a nonprofit financial literacy program for high-school students), organized volunteer efforts, and our company matching contributions program. Employees also receive one Community Day per year to volunteer at a cause of their choosing. To further enrich our work environment, we also organize extracurricular activities such as our running club, kickball and bowling teams as well as company-sponsored social events for employees and families.
We hope you’ll consider joining us as you explore careers at Magnetar!
