    Welcome to a place where complex problems are met with simple software solutions. Where a passion for excellence and flawless execution is inherent in everything we do. And where the satisfaction of success is experienced every day. We are Optiver. Where trading meets technology.

    Who We Are:

    Optiver is a proprietary global market maker, trading on major financial markets around the world. We opened our first office in Amsterdam and now have locations in Chicago, Shanghai, and Sydney. We employ over 900 highly educated professionals worldwide who are continuously improving the way we work and striving for excellence in everything we do. Being good is not good enough, and it is every employee’s responsibility to make our company better. Founded in 1986, Optiver has been profitable every year of its existence.

    What We Do:

    We solve a variety of problems with high degrees of difficulty: managing scarce bandwidth resources, building extremely low latency systems to respond to market events, and automatically pricing diverse sets of financial instruments with extremely low error tolerance. We must build systems with little tolerance for failure which we are sure will add to the stability of the market, not detract from it.

    How We Interview and Hire:

    Our process is a blend of technical and behavioral questions where we have an opportunity to understand more about your background, skillset, and interests. In order to provide insight into our working environment, our technical problems are closely related to the work you will perform as an Optiver developer.
