Description

Senior Devops Engineer
 
What we do:
We believe in protecting America’s 90 million investors. That’s our job. Because if people don’t trust in the markets, they won’t invest in the markets. We believe in thinking big. We oversee every brokerage firm and broker doing business with the U.S. public. That’s more than 3,900 firms and approximately 635,000 brokers. We oversee up to 75 billion market transactions per day. We believe in being aggressively vigilant. If brokers break the rules, we have the power to fine them, suspend them or bar them from the industry. We have the flexibility to innovate and invest in technology. We believe in a boots-on-the-ground approach. We work in communities across the country.
