Employer Profile

Optiver. It’s a combination of the Dutch words for ‘trading’ and ‘options'. And that’s

what we do. We’re a leader in Options trading (and other financial products) on

the world's financial markets.


At Optiver, we do things a bit differently to most businesses. We operate without

clients, taking risks and reaping the rewards ourselves. We maintain an informal

culture to make sure it's fun. We skip the mindless meetings and get on with it. 

And we celebrate high performance, individual excellence and doing better every

day. We take serious things very seriously - like chasing wins and embracing the

challenges of the market. We collaborate to solve open-ended problems in the

most competitive market there is. We're about fast feedback and speedy

solutions. Since we take the risk, we reap the rewards. And that's just how we

like it. We collaborate to innovate. We share knowledge, ideas and the glory when everything goes right.
