Scoby started his career at the Chicago options trading firm O'Connor & Associates in 1987. O'Connor eventually became part of UBS. He joined Peak6 in January 2012, where he was reunited with his former O'Connor & Associates colleagues Matthew Hulsizer and Jennifer Just, who left O'Connor in 1997 to start Peak6 Investments.[2]
