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, focused on pricing, execution and risk management. We provide liquidity to financial markets using our own capital, at our own risk, trading a wide range of products: listed derivatives, cash equities, ETFs, bonds and foreign currencies. Our independence allows us to objectively improve the markets and provide efficiencies for end investors.
With over one thousand colleagues globally, our mission to improve the market unites us. Thriving in a high performance environment, we pioneer our own trading strategies and systems using clean code and sophisticated technology. We achieve this by attracting, developing and empowering top talent, in order to sustain our future.
The more challenging the problem, the more excited we are. Teams of traders, researchers and developers work together to create the best solutions then put them into production. For anyone with a scientific mind and innate curiosity, this is a hugely rewarding process.

Improving the market is an extraordinary challenge that requires an extraordinary approach. Optiver provides a collaborative working environment to tackle these challenges. In fact, it is this way of working that sets us apart. Traders, developers, researchers and a large support team join forces with a unified sense of purpose.
