At the heart of our firm is our people and the ethos they embody - a culture of curiosity, empowerment and flexibility. This is what makes Grasshopper one of Asia's leading trading companies.
We've developed an environment that fosters and rewards curiosity. Our ideas come from all levels of the firm.
We empower our employees to have a sense of ownership over their work. Managers guide, not instruct, and give space to even our most junior team members to experiment and own their results.
Grasshoppers are trusted with a flexible schedule and the option of remote work. Our firm is testament that employees who are satisfied with their work-life balance are happier and more productive.
Every employee is on equal footing and every team member is seen as a hands-on contributor. Juniors collaborate freely with seniors, and traders work closely with techs. Senior management is just as comfortable in the trenches as they are making broad strategic decisions.
Our workplace is busy but fun. We value great code and decisions, not dress codes and formality. Whether around the trading floor or the gaming zone, we treat each other as peers and with respect. Company soirees, office olympics, employee exercise programs, overseas holidays, all figure into an amazing Grasshopper community.
At Grasshopper, we strive to help our people be the best they can be. Each employee is given the opportunity for financial, professional, and personal growth. We back this promise up with performance-based compensation, mentoring programs, tuition reimbursement, and more.
"It's incredibly satisfying to work with tech-savvy traders and deploy code daily. We tackle a wide spectrum of challenges, ranging from low level core system optimization problems to bleeding edge reinforcement learning models."
"When training junior traders, I try to impart mental fortitude, humility and a spirit of constant innovation.
Grasshopper believes in pushing traders straight into the deep end, but with the right support. Together, this combination allows you to learn incredibly quickly."

"The best things about Grasshopper are flexibility and autonomy. The culture here promotes innovation, even from its youngest members. Over the past 3 years at Grasshopper, I've defined my own role - I first joined as a junior trader, but now see myself as a quant developer that trades.
