Tower has built one of the fastest, most versatile, and most robust electronic-trading systems in the industry. This achievement has been made possible by Tower’s commitment to hiring top technical talent across the firm, and the high quality of Tower’s technology is critical to its success and its strong position in the electronic trading industry.
Tower’s trading groups also benefit from the work of a 45-person Systems team, which provides adept IT support to hundreds of Linux and Windows users across the world, maintains Tower’s myriad servers and datacenters, and constructs an ever-growing global network.
