“We value the difference.”

In 1986, Optiver started business as a single trader on the floor of Amsterdam’s options exchange. Today, we are at the forefront of trading and technology, employing over 1000 employees of 40 nationalities across offices worldwide.

How did we get here? With an unwavering focus on continuous development and our mission to improve the market. We stick to what we’re good at: making markets in a wide range of financial products. This clear focus has always served us well. We use our own capital, at our own risk, to trade on major financial markets around the world. By constantly providing liquidity, volume and competitive prices, we contribute to the stability and smooth functioning of fair, transparent and reliable markets. Our innovative trading systems are key to our success, enabling us to respond swiftly to every change in the market.

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 humour 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, breakfast and lunch facilities, sports and leisure activities, even weekly chair massages and of course Friday afternoon drinks.

We are continuously recruiting for the following positions:
