About Magnetar Capital

Magnetar Capital is a leading alternative asset manager with over $12.1 billion under management as of July 2020. We are conveniently headquartered in Evanston, Illinois – a suburb just north of Chicago – and are steps from public transportation and the lakefront as well as a vibrant downtown area. We operate two additional offices in London and Houston.

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 three core pillars: Alternative Credit & Fixed Income, Energy & Infrastructure and Systematic Investing.

When you join Magnetar, you will work alongside a diverse group of individuals who are among the best in the business at what they do. We attract highly skilled, dedicated professionals who enjoy working across practices and executing innovative ideas. Our employees have an intense level of intellectual curiosity, a profound passion for our work and care deeply about delivering results for the firm and for each other.

Our culture is based on the core values of insight, integrity and passion. We welcome unique backgrounds and perspectives, and work hard to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment where each of our employees feels empowered to thrive.

We know how important a healthy lifestyle is to our employees. When open, our offices provide employees with daily catered lunches at no cost and kitchens stocked with healthy snacks. We also have an onsite gym in our Evanston office and provide subsidized gym memberships for other office locations. While working remotely, our employees can take advantage of weekly virtual programming like fitness classes, cooking classes and mental health or parenting seminars.

Magnetar employees are passionate about philanthropy and we provide plenty of ways to give back. Through our Foundation, Magnetar invests heavily in increasing access to financial education through a best-in-class curriculum we co-created called finEDge. Employees can also take advantage of organized volunteer events and our company’s charitable match program. To further enrich our work environment, we also organize extracurricular activities such as our running club and bowling teams as well as company-sponsored social events for employees and families.

Our employees enjoy exploring outside of the office too. Our unlimited paid time off policy, which includes unlimited vacation and sick days, as well as a competitive parental leave policy, gives employees time to rest and recharge.

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