Scroll into our culture

We don’t act our age

We’ve been at it for over a decade, and we still work as we did when we started. We move quickly, think differently and stay ahead of trends and tech innovations. Hey, we like to do things our own way - and since we work for ourselves instead of investors, we get to do exactly that.

We solve problems – tough ones

We love a really challenging, really interesting problem, and we’ll dig in to figure it out. And because there’s nothing better than solving a problem together, our approach is collaborative and connected. We’re passionate about doing more and being better than the day before.

We’re global and diverse

Montreal will always be home, but we’re also citizens of the world. Vigilant is part of DRW, a global principal trading firm based in Chicago, and our work—in the industry and in the community—has broad reach. We are engineers, developers, strategists, and more, from a range of industries, with unique perspectives. We even speak 20 languages. Not including the programming ones.

Meet Rafay, Research Analyst at Vigilant

After I completed a bachelor’s degree in international development and economics, I focused on finding a way to reconcile my interest in history and geopolitics with a natural urge to move towards banking or finance. A research analyst position seemed like the best of both worlds, and I’m fortunate to be in a role at Vigilant – a Montreal based subsidiary of the proprietary trading firm, DRW - that focuses on major news-making events around the globe.

Giving Back

Vigilant is shaped by the Montreal culture and community, and we invest in the communities where our employees live and work around the globe – giving back has been a core part of our business since day one.
