Company Description

MarketAxess is a FinTech company and component of the S&P 500. We are a leading provider of global fixed income trading platforms, data, and post-trade solutions.

The fixed-income markets represent an enormous global marketplace, where only a fraction of average daily trade volume occurs electronically. Believe it or not, most fixed-income trades are still executed via phone or blotter, providing us with a significant opportunity for disruption and future growth.

We believe this market is ripe for disruption and have created a proprietary electronic platform that connects the world's most influential financial institutions to the world's largest capital market. Since 2015, MarketAxess has grown from roughly 300 employees to approximately 700 with offices across seven countries and annual revenue has more than doubled. We're excited about the growth opportunities ahead and have built a fast-paced, collaborative, environment where all employees are empowered to make a material impact. We hope you'll come join us!
