Over thirty years ago, Optiver started business as a single trader on the floor of Amsterdam’s European Options Exchange. Today, we are a leading global electronic market maker, focused on pricing, execution and risk management. We provide liquidity to financial markets using our own capital, at our own risk, trading a wide range of products: listed derivatives, cash equities, ETFs, bonds and foreign currencies. Our independence allows us to objectively improve the markets and provide efficiencies for end investors.
With over one thousand Optiverians globally, our mission to improve the market unites us. Thriving in a high performance environment, we pioneer our own trading strategies and systems using clean code and sophisticated technology. We achieve this by attracting, developing and empowering top talent, in order to sustain our future.
As our new Software Developer, you will be developing systems which will be used by our Risk, MidOffice and Trading departments in a fast moving trading environment. The systems we build will require your skills in multithreading, concurrency, performance profiling and optimization. You will be responsible for the full development lifecycle, where you will get a lot of freedom to decide on code base, technology and architecture. The more knowledge you gain about the business, the more opportunity you get to partner with the business. With direct access to end users, you will see your results in production and get immediate feedback. You will be part of an agile team and you will get a chance to work with the latest technologies on the latest applications and learn from highly educated and experienced colleagues.
Optiver is above all a state of mind. We are looking for you when you believe in daily improvement, when you like to be seriously rewarded for your performance and when you easily adapt to change and enjoy some humor and fun. To be concrete, we offer excellent remuneration and great secondary benefits, such as an attractive profit sharing structure, training opportunities, fully paid first-class commuting expenses, a premium-free pension, breakfast and lunch facilities, sports and leisure activities, even weekly chair massages and of course Friday afternoon drinks. We are used to guiding expats through their relocation and offer relocation packages and discounts on health insurance.
