We’re a talent-driven organization and our people set us apart. Because what we do is so different, raw ability and judgment matter more to us than skills and experience. We look for deeply curious people who are determined, persistent, and ready to grow. We value compassion as well as intelligence. Because we are relatively small, every person we hire changes the eco-system of the company. In the same way, we expect each individual we hire to have a unique and meaningful impact here. For these reasons, we consider every hire we make very carefully.
Everything works best when PDTers’ incentives are aligned with the company’s success, so we take a long-term, holistic, and generous view of compensation. We believe in paying our people to reflect their cumulative contributions to our success over time. There are no fixed or pre-determined upper bounds for compensation growth. Your earning potential depends on a combination of firm performance and how much positive impact you have. In addition, our deferred compensation plan allows part of PDTers’ compensation to be directly tied to the firm’s investment performance.
Although we’re humble, we do like to brag about one thing: our high employee retention. We prioritize hiring great people and providing ample opportunities for them to thrive, prosper, and be happy. Why do they stay at PDT? The best way to get an answer is to ask a PDTer why they like working here. Our people speak for themselves.
“These are incredibly smart people who could do anything in the world, and they choose to be here."

We understand that your career is about more than the work you do. We are proud to give PDTers an ever-evolving set of benefits and perks to support their health, happiness, finances, and learning. We worry about ensuring you are fully covered so you don’t have to. PDT provides full medical, dental, vision, disability, and life insurance coverage, and supports your wellness with an array of perks and programs. We have generous time off and unlimited sick leave, match charitable giving, subsidize fitness and exercise, and offer emergency back-up child and elder care. We offer 401k matching and pre-tax benefits for medical, dependent care, and some transportation expenses.
Our work environment is comfortable, casual, and flexible. Our pantries are stocked with snacks, and we share frequent company meals, outings, and events in and out of the office. If you’re looking for a little friendly competition, you can take on other PDTers at ping-pong, poker, and trivia tournaments, or team up for scavenger hunts, sports leagues, and more.
Education is important to us and what we do, and we want to support your learning and career growth whenever possible. That’s why we pay for and encourage annual conference and seminar attendance, and host internal and external training programs. We also offer partial tuition reimbursement. In addition, PDTers are constantly hosting external and internal speakers, book clubs, and roundtables on all kinds of topics. If you think PDT fits with your own career goals, we’d love to chat.
