Austin is where Optiver’s big ambitions in machine learning, research infrastructure and big data computing are being realised
With major tech companies calling Austin home, the city is a natural complement to Optiver’s Chicago office, and a fitting location from which to pursue new and exciting opportunities in the US market. Located in “The Domain” neighborhood, Optiver Austin focuses on quantitative research, engineering initiatives and cutting-edge technology. Since 2021, the newly-christened “Silicon Hills” has also served as the location for our Delta-One trading team, which focuses on machine learning-based algorithmic trading.
Optiver Austin serves as a key location for quantitative research and engineering innovation. It’s a hub for our US Delta One trading team and global engineering efforts, focused on running machine learning-based trading strategies, to keep our systems agile and optimised.
“The US is projected to become one of our largest growth markets in coming years. Technical innovation, higher trading volumes, new asset classes and increased activity in single-stock equity options will all play a role. With Austin joining our long-established Chicago location, Optiver is in a position to accelerate our ambitious US growth plans.”
