This is Optiver


Solve Puzzles for a Living

Optiver thrives on people with a passion for solving complex problems. Challenge is our daily bread. We work in close-knit teams to tackle the most interesting puzzles in the world. Collaboration drives our success. Our people share an ambition to challenge themselves and improve every day.

We empower and engage our people. We give you the freedom to do your job from day one. Your tenure does not determine the responsibility we offer you. Instead, it's your ability to deliver results and bring value to those around you that defines your ownership. We are on the hunt for passionate science, technology, actuarial studies, engineering and maths students to join our team. We are seeking game changers. We want people who channel their energies towards innovation. If you're inquisitive, passionate, diligent and looking to make your mark, then this is for you.

You may know nothing about trading or finance. That's okay. All you need is a strong sense of curiosity and a passion for problems. We'll teach you the rest.

Who we are

Optiver’s a different beast. We don’t have clients. Or dress codes. We don’t have a stifling organisational hierarchy. And we don’t have the ego-driven culture you might expecting from finance. That's not us. We’re about the challenge. Our people are driven to solve open-ended problems in the most competitive market there is. We celebrate fast feedback and quick solutions. We collaborate to innovate. We share knowledge, ideas and the glory when everything goes right.

Optiver has been around for more than 30 years. We’re an electronic market maker operating around the globe. We work to improve the market, trading options and other financial instruments. With more than 1000 people around the world working to improve the market, Optiver’s a quiet powerhouse of creative problem solving and collaboration. We like challenges. We love success. And we’re proud of our culture, designed to give you plenty of opportunity and support to do amazing things.
