Who we are:

Optiver is a tech-driven trading firm and leading global market maker. As one of the oldest market making institutions, we are a trusted partner of 70+ exchanges across the globe. Our mission is to constantly improve the market by injecting liquidity, providing accurate pricing, increasing transparency and acting as a stabilising force no matter the market conditions. With a focus on continuous improvement, we participate in the safeguarding of healthy and efficient markets for all.

Based in ‘The Domain’ neighborhood, Optiver’s Austin office serves as the firm’s innovation hub, with a strong focus on quantitative research, software and hardware engineering initiatives. With tech innovation as an integral part of our core business, the booming city proved an ideal backdrop for our heavy investment into machine learning, research infrastructure and big data computing. What’s more, with world-class music, food and art scenes, as well as countless scenic outdoor activities, the quality of life for Austin Optiverians is second to none.

  • Experience coding in C++, C#, C or Java
  • Ability to communicate and collaborate with developers, traders and business operations on a daily basis

  • Various office perks, including breakfast, lunch and snacks
