Optiver inhouseday

Location: Online

Note: this event is only for 3th years and higher.

Optiver will host a Trading Game, which will be hosted by a recruiter and 2 traders. They will begin with explaining what trading is, and how it has developed over the years (now being very tech driven). They will also share their stories of how they got to Optiver and what their days look like.

We will proceed with explaining what market making is, and how it works. With this knowledge you will be able to experience what trading is like on our simulation trading platform where we will play a game.

Optiver always wants to make their events as interactive and educational as possible, so bring your interest and questions to he event.

If you thrive in an environment where you are propelled to new limits every day, then Optiver is the place for you. So, what is it that we do and why does it lie at the cutting-edge of technology, trading and research?

The inhouseday will be 8 April from 13:00 till 15:30. Registrations for this event will open 18 March 13:00 and close 25 March 13:00.

A total of 20 students can subscribe for this event.

Dresscode: Casual/informal

Note that we might ask you for your CV.

Note: Not showing up or late unregistrations might lead to a fine.

A never-ending pursuit of excellence.
We are market makers. In simple terms, we provide bid-ask prices for financial products in exchanges all over the world. This creates the liquidity needed to keep the markets viable and allow everyone to trade at will. In essence, we improve the market and give it stability even in times of extreme volatility. It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly but that also makes what we do so exciting.

Pushing the envelope one idea at a time.
Every day at Optiver is an opportunity to solve the seemingly impossible. For you to build, code, develop and strategise something that pushes the boundaries of technological and analytical possibility. Every team member has an integral part to play in this endeavour. From traders, developers, engineers, researchers and support, we all strive towards finding solutions to incredibly complex problems. It’s a melting pot of dynamic thought, simple execution and pioneering spirits.

Your Growth Is Our Growth
Our team ethos is based on a foundation of growing success. This means that we want you to continually improve and evolve into the best version of yourself. This is fostered in a working environment where everyone is an equal and is afforded the same opportunities to flourish. This rings true across our global operations, which include offices in Amsterdam, London, Chicago, Shanghai and Sydney.

Becoming Part Of Our Team
The bar is set high and with good reason. To continue innovating in our category, we select those whose brilliance will shine. We value potential over current expertise, which is why we hire candidates from a wide range of fields. Our recruitment process includes interactive experiences that test your analytical ability and give you a taste of what it means to be a market maker. We look forward to meeting you – as you could well be our newest, most-valued teammate.
