  • Extensive experience developing real-time, performant and ergonomic user interfaces, preferably in C# on WPF/WinForms.
  • Ability to build efficient, highly optimised frameworks that resonate at a high level of abstraction.
  • Prior involvement in projects from start to finish – responsible for project scope definition, development, maintenance, system support of existing in-house systems and confident in making recommendations on solutions.
  • Someone who has an appreciation for quality code, performance optimisation and best practices.

 

WHAT YOU'LL GET

  • The chance to work alongside diverse, intelligent, and driven peers in a rewarding environment.
  • Competitive remuneration, including an attractive bonus structure and additional leave entitlements.
  • Training, mentorship and personal development opportunities.
  • Gym membership plus weekly in-house chair massages.
  • Daily breakfast and lunch facilities.
  • Regular social events including an annual company trip.
  • A work-from-home allowance and support.
  • Guided relocation, a competitive relocation package and visa sponsorship where necessary.

As an intentionally flat organisation, we believe that great ideas and impact can come from everyone. We are passionate about empowering individuals and creating diverse teams that thrive. Every person at Optiver should feel included, valued and respected, because we believe our best work is done together.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is hardwired through every stage of our hiring process. We encourage applications from candidates from any and all backgrounds, and we welcome requests for reasonable adjustments during the process to ensure that you can best demonstrate your abilities.
