Company Summary:

Magnetar Capital is a leading asset manager with AUM of over $14B as of May 1, 2017.

We seek to generate consistent performance across a variety of market conditions by identifying differentiated investment ideas that we believe can be developed into scalable businesses. We invest across four core pillars: Fixed Income, Energy, Quantitative, and Fundamental Strategies. Magnetar is headquartered in Evanston, Illinois, and operates substantial satellite offices in New York, London, Houston, and Minneapolis.

In addition to a competitive compensation package, we offer a broad range of employer benefits. These include: premium employer-subsidized healthcare coverage (PPO), dental, and
vision coverage for employees and dependents. Additional benefits include healthcare and commuter flexible spending accounts, 401(k) retirement plan with partial company match, life insurance and paid maternity and paternity leave.

We know how important healthy choices are to our employees. We offer an onsite gym in our Evanston office (and subsidized memberships for other office locations), kitchens with healthy snacks, and health-conscious, catered lunches daily at no cost to our employers.

Magnetar employees are passionate about philanthropy and there are plenty of ways for employees to give back through the Magnetar Academy (a nonprofit financial literacy program
for high-school students), organized volunteer efforts, and our company matching contributions program. Employees also receive one Community Day per year to volunteer at a cause of their choosing. To further enrich our work environment, we also organize weekly extracurricular activities such as our running club, kickball and bowling teams as well as company-sponsored social events for employees and families.

We hope you’ll consider joining us as you explore careers at Magnetar!
