Malyshev began his career in 1998 at Bell Laboratories conducting research until 2000. He spent the next three years as a consultant with McKinsey & Company.

He was appointed to the position of Managing Director and Global Head of High Frequency Trading; under his direction, the group made $1 billion in 2008. He resigned in 2009 and started his own firm. The move prompted Citadel to file a lawsuit in which Malyshev was required to pay a fine.
