Who we are
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 driven by technology. We build high-performance, low-latency trading systems and algorithms that are constantly evolving. We provide liquidity to financial markets using our own capital, at our own risk, trading a wide range of products: from listed derivatives, cash equities, ETFs and bonds to foreign exchange. Our infrastructure of globally distributed systems generates petabytes of data every day. To be able to compete in this industry everything – from the hardware to the software – has to be perfect.
What we do
The technical challenges that this fast environment presents is what really motivates and challenges people at Optiver. To help us achieve what we want to attract, develop and empower top talent with a down to earth mentality, in order to sustain our future.
What really sets Optiver apart from other companies is its openness, honesty and our colleagues. People have very strong opinions, but they are also open to listen and to change their mind if the facts presented by others have more value. The team shares the same goal, meaning that we are all pulling in the same direction and you as an individual care about how the person next to you is doing their job.

- (Algorithmic) Trader
- Execution Trader
- Quantitative Researcher
- Data Analyst
