There are countless reasons the Optiver team loves coming to work. But, perhaps, none is greater than the culture of excellence that permeates every level of the firm.
Whether you’re hired as a trader, software engineer or researcher, your career at Optiver will begin the same way: with a period of intensive trader training. In addition, our tech hires participate in a short bootcamp on engineering and design principles behind our proprietary systems. The goal is for every new hire to receive the best possible training so they’re able to hit the ground running—or the floor trading—as soon as possible.
Continuous learning opportunities
Of course, your education at Optiver won’t end with your training. Far from it. Between formal mentoring and feedback, the informal peer-to-peer learning that’s a natural byproduct of our highly collaborative culture and outside professional development opportunities, your hunger for knowledge will never go unsatisfied.
