About Optiver

If you thrive in an environment where you are propelled to new limits every day, then Optiver is the
place for you. So, what is it that we do and why does it lie at the cutting-edge of technology, trading
and research?

A never-ending pursuit of excellence.

We are market makers. In simple terms, we provide bid-ask prices for financial products in exchanges
all over the world. This creates the liquidity needed to keep the markets viable and allow everyone to
trade at will. In essence, we improve the market and give it stability even in times of extreme volatility.
It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly but that also makes what we do so exciting.

Pushing the envelope one idea at a time.

Every day at Optiver is an opportunity to solve the seemingly impossible. For you to build, code,
develop and strategise something that pushes the boundaries of technological and analytical
possibility. Every team member has an integral part to play in this endeavour. From traders,
developers, engineers, researchers and support, we all strive towards finding solutions to incredibly
complex problems. It’s a melting pot of dynamic thought, simple execution and pioneering spirits.

Your Growth Is Our Growth

Our team ethos is based on a foundation of growing success. This means that we want you to
continually improve and evolve into the best version of yourself. This is fostered in a working
environment where everyone is an equal and is afforded the same opportunities to flourish. This rings
true across our global operations, which include offices in Amsterdam, London, Chicago, Shanghai
and Sydney.

Becoming Part Of Our Team

The bar is set high and with good reason. To continue innovating in our category, we select those
whose brilliance will shine. We value potential over current expertise, which is why we hire candidates
from a wide range of fields. Our recruitment process includes interactive experiences that test your
analytical ability and give you a taste of what it means to be a market maker. We look forward to
meeting you – as you could well be our newest, most-valued teammate.
