“Optiver is not only a trading firm but also a leading technology hub. People get to work with state of art machine learning techniques, cutting edge hardware solutions and mind opening cloud computing framework. Not only we revolutionize trading with technology but also we grow and improve the market at the same time. Coupled with flat management structure and start-up vibe, I could think of no better place to be.”

“Working in Risk at Optiver gives me a birds-eye view of the company as a whole. Not only is it possible to participate in projects throughout the company – I am able to build my knowledge of the entire business. This allows for the expertise required to identify risks and successfully argue for mitigation. The challenge is to see no surprises.”

“‘Where do you see yourself in 5 years?’ This question showed up a lot when I was looking for my very first job after graduation. If I were able to travel back in time, I’d tell my younger self that I am happy with the decision I made. After all these years working at Optiver I am still thrilled by the day-to-day challenges of the work, the possibilities for independent thinking and learning from the mistakes I make, as well as keeping pace with the continuous changes, shock and awe of financial markets.”
