Diversity, equity and inclusion

At LMAX Group, we embrace our diverse perspectives and experiences to build an inclusive, innovative community. We value our differences in thought, style, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, culture, ethnicity and experience and celebrate them to cultivate inclusion.

We are big on knowledge sharing

Supporting continued growth of knowledge and sharing of expertise it creates an enormous sense of everyone being part of one team, leading to a very supportive culture. It is a great way to learn from each other. It is also more sociable and fun!

Supporting health and wellbeing

Apart from offering private healthcare coverage we have various initiatives and group activities that help promote a healthy lifestyle: Tuesday’s football games, golf days, 3 peaks challenges, dedicated gym sessions, team basketball games, free gym memberships, promoting mental health care via our wellbeing platform. *Benefits vary by location

Dedicated to quality

We care a lot about quality; Operating trading systems brings interesting throughput and latency challenges (processing over a billion orders a day, with 80 microsecond round-trip times), so we care a lot more about software performance than many other organisations.

Personal development

We take personal and professional development seriously at LMAX Group which is why every department has a training allowance and access to courses and other personal development resources.

Embracing change

As the business grows, we face lots of exciting challenges. It’s part of evolving – we see every interaction as an opportunity to grow together even when things don’t go exactly to plan.

We foster a sense of community

We care about making people feel engaged, challenged, motivated, providing a safe space to live authentically and most importantly a sense of belonging.

Growth mindset

We value learning from our colleagues and like to challenge each
other to find the best solutions. We’ve learned that the best answers don’t always surface right away, and that’s okay!
