What the press say

IDG’s Computerworld has selected CME Group as 2013 Best Place to Work in Information Technology honoree for the 9th year in a row

What our employees say

I joined CME in October 2012 after spending more than 13 years with my previous employer which was a multinational managed services provider. I was responsible for the implementation and support of Unix and SAN infrastructures in a diverse and demanding environment. To say changing jobs was a big decision is a huge understatement, after 13 years in the one place you become part of the furniture. Thankfully I needn’t have worried. From day one CME has infected me with its relentless desire to strive forward and continually improve.

I joined CME in the role of Lead Technical Operations Engineer in the Technology Operations Command Centre. TOCC provides first and second level support of CME’s mission critical environments across the PROD, CERT, New Release and DR environments. During the interview stage I was sold on the family friendly working environment, in addition to the fact I would be dealing with cutting edge technologies. The scale of the operation was also extremely appealing.

CME empower their staff to make suggestions for improvement and they realise their number one asset is their people. I for one am glad to be a part of this and look forward to growing and improving with our company”

Here at CME we can offer you;

  • A culture which encourages and rewards entrepreneurship, innovation, teamwork and delivery

  • Work/Life Balance

  • A dynamic and innovative Agile Environment with an onsite Agile Coach

  • Leading edge technology stacks

  • A comprehensive training and personal development plan for each individual to help enrich talent

  • A fun place to work
