Paul studied jazz piano and computer science at Indiana University before deciding to enter the world of programming. Though he interviewed at several financial firms in Chicago, Paul was most impressed by the quality of the people at PEAK6. He started out with the company at OptionsHouse—PEAK6’s then online, consumer retail brokerage business—before moving to his current role.
Paul works on the Software Delivery Team, designing, building, and seeing through to production the creation of software for traders and other users at PEAK6. He works on a wide array of software, from automated trade execution systems and idea-generating tools for traders to back-office and operations tools for support groups. Because he loves finding solutions to problems, working in tandem with other engineers to resolve these issues are often Paul’s favorite moments of the day.
