Working at OptionMetrics

We're small, agile, casual, and passionate about the work we do. We're a collaborative environment where everyone's input makes a difference. Everyone works together to brainstorm and implement our next generation of data and analytic information products. You'll have true ownership over your projects from beginning to end, with an emphasis on accountability over micromanagement. We're not your typical finance company!

Perks & benefits
  • Free Food

    We have the usual drinks and snacks (including ample amounts of coffee and La Croix)!

    Our office has grown to occupy the entire 18th floor of our building. It's bright and spacious with gorgeous views in multiple directions including Times Square and The Empire Hotel.

You can choose a 2-3 day offering or split between 2 activities. Every employee is encouraged and expected to make use of this perk.

  • Flexible Hours

    Most of our engineers are in the office from 9:30 am - 5:30 pm, but we don't have any hard rules around this. Fairly flexible start/end time as long as you're working for 8 hours and take up to an hour for lunch.
