Happy Riding!

Since many of our employees bike to work, we wanted to make storing and servicing their bikes more convenient for them. Our newest employee perk is a covered bike rack and self-service repair station. Plus, to celebrate National Bike to Work Day, we passed out Naked Juice to all of our riders.

SIG Magic Tournament

Last weekend, we invited 30 local high school students to join us at SIG for a Magic Tournament. In Magic, you have to make decisions under uncertainty, observe your opponents’ actions, and strategize to maximize your expectation of winning – just like our traders operate in the financial markets. Many of our traders are Magic players, and the students had the opportunity to play against them for bounty prizes. It was an exciting day for us all!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support a great cause!

Happy (Early) Pi Day!

We celebrated an early Pi Day at the office today. Did you know calculating the digits of p has proved to be a benchmark for advancements in computing algorithms, hardware, and software? As of 2013, we know at least the first 12 trillion digits of p, and tomorrow you too can celebrate 3.14.15 at 9:26:53 for a once in a lifetime Pi Day!

At SIG, February means poker. In anticipation of our annual employee poker tournament, we kicked off the month with No Limit Hold ‘Em Classes.

Experience the action with us as we follow five of our players through the tournament. Good luck to all of our participants!

Celebrating a Great Year

We celebrated the season with festive parties in each of our offices. In Bala, we enjoyed gourmet food stations with items like truffled french fries, sushi, and make your own milkshakes. In Dublin, we dressed up and grabbed props for a photo booth. We played poker in Chicago, listened to jazz in New York, and had a great dinner in San Francisco. Thanks to all of our employees for getting in the holiday spirit with us!
