The People of Optiver Amsterdam

Ashley Chen

“The industry itself is ever evolving and becoming a bigger part of modern society’s development. With every new innovation in the financial market landscape, new challenges present themselves as opportunities for people in the industry to make things better.”

Dovile Vintonyte
Software Engineer

“One of the things I enjoy most is that every day is different. We have so much freedom as engineers at Optiver and are really able to make an impact. The time from solving a problem to going into production and deployment is really short, which make it extremely rewarding. I get to work side-by-side with experienced and skilled developers and traders and the learning curve from both a technical and financial skills perspective is extremely steep. I don’t think I have ever had a day here where I didn’t learn something new.”

Bob Muijs

“Optiver was the first place I really had to constantly put in effort, to keep up. Being here now, I love how passionate everyone is about what they do, and everyone is always willing to help each other. Every day you are driven to improve by the people around you in a very direct but constructive way. This collaborative, high-pace atmosphere is something I thoroughly enjoy.”
