Our Company: 

The tastytrade family of companies empowers individual traders differently. Founded in 2011 as an online financial media network, tastytrade, Inc. expanded to include other companies like a brokerage firm (tastytrade in 2017), a research lab (quiet foundation in 2018), and a magazine (luckbox in 2019). In 2021, London-based IG Group acquired tastytrade, Inc. and assigned it to lead business in North America, including two of their own established brands – IG US (RFED) and DailyFX. This combined team has years of experience like institutional brokers but also a passion for disrupting the entire trading industry.

Our dream is simple: we want more people to find more success with a better trading experience. That’s why we’re investing heavily in the right people, technology, and media to make that happen in the US and across the globe. 

Location: We have two great offices in the West Loop of Chicago and are currently hybrid meaning we’d love to see your face a few days a week!
