Lead Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 16, 2018
I think that the work that Uptake does is vital to making companies more productive and accountable, but I don't think that the current corporate structure lends itself to maximizing its power. Were it to become a leaner and more focused enterprise, I think it could have tremendous influence on a broad variety of industries.
subsidized lunches, flexible work schedule, high-quality employees
A lack of executive direction, little direction at the team lead level, few details about corporate direction

Clerk (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 13, 2017
There is a lot of down time, but when you are busy, it gets very chaotic and fast paced. There is not much room to move in company unless you want to trade on the screen, because that is where it is all going.
Independent Clerk/Trader's Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 29, 2017
Fast paced trading environment where no day is predictable. Expect the unexpected, decisions had to be made quickly and work is never taken home. You can not take anything personally in that environment or you would be dead in 3 days.
Senior Market Reporter/Trading Floor Operations (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 8, 2017
Like no other job I've ever had or heard about. Fast paced, hostile environment, loud like a sawmill factory. It was great to be a part of something that has the worlds attention. Greatest job I ever had.
Great people from all sorts of backgrounds
