Working at DCE


An extraordinary place to work

Unlike other trading companies, we don’t segment professionals into stove-piped roles at DC Energy. Our holistic approach to investing and trading depends on all of our employees taking on significant and varied responsibilities. Rigorous quantitative analysis, a solid grasp of market fundamentals, constantly evolving cutting-edge systems, and a growth-oriented focus are integral to the experience of each and every employee at DC Energy.
 
We are organized around markets, not functions. Our trading professionals work with a team-based approach, sharing all aspects of the investment process. To prevent functional segmentation from interfering with the flow of ideas and a rapid pace of development, we require all trading professionals to assume a spectrum of responsibilities, from the functional to the strategic. DC Energy relies on exceptional hires with aptitude and interest in quantitative analysis, programming, interpersonal communications, and investment problem solving.

DC Energy is committed to the development of talented individuals who, in turn, are crucial to the firm’s continued success and growth. In keeping with our view that raw horsepower and innate talent can be shaped and focused, our professionals share no common background, other than uncommonly sharp problem solving, analytic, and communication skills. The staff across our affiliates has academic backgrounds ranging from bachelors degrees to MBAs and PhDs; they come from a vast array of focus areas, spanning the spectrum from astrophysics to zoology; chemists, economists and historians have all succeeded here. Our hiring is focused on analyst roles; we develop the vast majority of our professional and management team from internal advancement.

Through an intense introductory training program along with subsequent on-the-job mentoring, we provide our new hires with the extensive background needed to rapidly come up to speed. This provides a foundation in analytic methods for investment problem solving, effective business communications, data extraction and programming techniques, and strategic thinking. We devote significant resources to the continual cultivation of our professionals; with robust channels for formal and informal feedback, we expect our new hires to grow into professionals capable of directing new initiatives and managing investment portfolios.

Hiring Process


Hiring Process


At DC Energy, there is no required background or prerequisite experience. We are looking for exceptional individuals, and our hiring process allows us to cast a wide net in our search for these candidates. Each fall, we visit a handful of schools across the country; for those select schools where we have close historic relationships, there is a well-defined on-campus recruiting process. Many of our employees come from campuses that we are not able to visit, or are hired outside of the traditional fall interviewing schedule. Our off-campus recruiting process provides us the necessary logistical wherewithal to identify and hire sharp minds across the country whenever they apply. While our employees are without equal, we are an equal opportunity employer.
