Optiver is a tech-driven trading firm and leading global market maker. With close to 2,000 employees in office locations around the world, we’re united in our commitment to improve financial markets, making them more transparent and efficient for all participants.
Our best work is done together
At the heart of our collaborative culture, is our drive to continuously improve. You’re given significant responsibility early on and encouraged to challenge thinking from the day you start.
Our high-performance environment means you’ll be surrounded by best-in-class colleagues with a passion for problem solving. Yet, our intentionally flat and informal culture allows us to remain down to earth and approachable.
We're always curious and eager to learn. In fact, the more complex or niche a subject, the more likely we’ll want to understand it from the inside out.
Potential over expertise
We look for the strongest academic minds, combined with a motivation to succeed. You could have a degree as diverse as Mathematics, Actuarial, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering or even Philosophy.
And because we recruit problem solvers from all degrees and backgrounds – no prior industry knowledge is required.
We believe that great ideas and impact can come from everyone. As an intentionally flat organisation, we’re focused on creating an environment where every person is supported to build, innovate and thrive.
Optiver believe in giving back to the communities we come from and operate within. This drive for 'better every day takes a lot of different shapes, to give their people opportunities to support their preferred causes. Here are some examples:
