Use the below information to see when IMC hires graduates, but more importantly what graduate degree’s and other student attributes they target for their jobs.
Graduates are treated differently at IMC, because they are different. They’re restless perfectionists who love technology and never give up until a problem is solved. If that sounds like you, come start an extraordinary career with one of the world’s leading trading firms.
IMC is one of the world's leading proprietary trading firms, trading on the biggest exchanges in the world.
Founded in 1989 by two Dutch traders, IMC today employs over 500 people in Amsterdam, New York, Chicago, Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai. We’re primarily active in algorithmic arbitrage and market-making on listed exchanges across the globe.
We trade on an entirely proprietary basis, and that means we don’t have clients. Instead, we use our own capital for all trading activity and take on all associated risks. With our sights firmly set on becoming the number one proprietary trading company in the world by profit and volume, the possibilities for our future and yours are endless.
Technology has transformed the old method of floor trading that you’ve seen in the movies to a process where traders are 'plugged in' to exchanges. We’re leading this transition. Our trading strategy involves using sophisticated algorithms, which are created and coded by us, to buy and sell a security at different prices. It creates a unique environment where traders and developers work as one team to apply technology in new and innovative ways.
Our Graduate Program can offer you a learning experience that no other trading firm can. From our collaborative team environment in Sydney, you can start tackling challenges with the world’s brightest minds from your very first week.
Who We’re Looking For
Our success as a trading firm comes from hiring people who think and act a little differently to most. Our graduate traders and developers are highly intelligent, inquisitive and tenacious, and never the type to give up without a win.
If you’re a top academic performer who loves to think fast and solve problems, and tackle new challenges every day, you’re one of our kind. Strong communication skills and a passion for collaboration are vital. You need the confidence to voice opinions, but it’s just as important that you can listen to and respect your teammates’ ideas and keep your feet planted firmly on the ground.
About The Program
Our in-house developed global trainee program will teach you everything you need to set you up for success, with a combination of classroom-based courses and simulations. The program begins in one of our international offices where you’ll learn the ins and outs of our business and have time to explore the city alongside fellow graduates from across the globe.
Once back in Sydney, you’ll be paired with an experienced mentor who’ll help you thrive in the world of IMC, ensuring you continue to grow and be challenged. You’ll earn a $125,000 package in your first year (plus bonus!) and receive all of the guidance you need to start trading or developing software from your very first day. Your learning won’t stop there. Throughout the program you’ll benefit from ongoing opportunities to develop new skills and grow your career.
Work on exciting projects and make a real difference to our business in just 10 weeks.
Take your first steps into the fast-paced, problem solving culture at IMC. During your 10 week summer internship you’ll be introduced to theoretical and technical concepts in the classroom, then guided as you apply that knowledge to exciting, meaningful projects. You’ll be assigned a mentor, given real business challenges, have countless networking opportunities and receive the same competitive base pay as our graduates.
Should all go well, we’d look for you to return to our office in a permanent position, starting with our Graduate Trainee program.
The Summer internship is available for Traders and Software Engineers.
We believe that businesses and those who work for them should contribute towards a better society. We embrace this through a joint commitment and shared responsibility to fund the charitable foundations in each office and make that work visible and inclusive. We also empower individuals’ charitable interests by matching employee donations and providing grants to the good causes in which they are actively engaged.
