Job Description

Would you like to work for a young international company and have the possibility to live abroad?

Are you ready to join an elite, dynamic, and successful trading team as a Graduate Trader?

UTR8 is a young and vibrant international company that was founded in 2011 as a proprietary trading firm by former partners of one of the leading firms in the business. Trading on own account and risk, we maintain a continuous market presence on many major exchanges around the world.

Because we are a relatively small company, we have a culture of friends and organize different activities together. Outside of work, our traders embrace life with gusto. Would you like to go skiing in the Swiss Alps, end your workweek on one of the many roof-top bars in Hong Kong, go wakeboarding on Lake Luzern or snorkeling in the Caribbean? This is possible at UTR8! We offer you the opportunity to work in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Hong Kong and the Caribbean.

UTR8’s highly experienced traders are not only the Champions League of the trading industry; they will teach you everything you need to know to become successful in this business. We believe that you learn on the job, expect a proactive attitude and you will be able to do your first trades within a few weeks. No classrooms, but an intensive in-house training. The job is demanding; we expect you to work hard, show dedication, be autonomous and are eager to learn. On the other hand, this job is very rewarding and so are we as a company!

If you think you have what it takes to join our elite team, we want to hear from you. We're looking for exceptional candidates who are not only highly skilled in trading, but who also possess the confidence, charisma, and adventurous spirit that define our existing team members.
