New Global Trader Training Program – Start with a fresh perspective

With more than 1300+ employees spanning nine global offices, Optiver takes a truly multicultural approach to market making. We believe diverse perspectives breed brilliant ideas. In our experience, the more backgrounds collaborating on a problem, the more creative the solution. In this spirit of global collaboration, we’re excited to launch an exciting new graduate initiative. If you join our world-class teams as a trader, researcher or data scientist, we’ll fly you to Amsterdam to experience your onboarding training at our dynamic, European hub.

The program is open to graduates applying to join Optiver in September 2022 and March 2023 – from any of our global offices. It runs over 4 weeks and includes all-expenses-paid travel, accommodation, meals, entertainment and learning materials. The training is a fully immersive crash course, covering everything from derivative pricing theory to execution dynamics. We’re going to equip you with all the knowledge needed to hit the ground running, in the home of the world’s first stock exchange.  

Get ready to join forces with Optiver’s brilliant global team members against the iconic backdrop of the Dutch capital city. Don’t wait to apply! We look forward to hosting you in our Amsterdam office as part of our new Global Training Program.
