In Asia Pacific, Optiver was one of the first global market makers to establish a presence in the region, with the incorporation our Sydney office in 1996. Since then, we have expanded our footprint by establishing offices in Taipei (2005), Hong Kong (2007), Shanghai (2012) and Singapore (2021).

  • Design and architect the deployment of services to maximise reliability of the trading environments, ensuring that they are operating within acceptable performance thresholds
  • Understand the broader business needs and translate that into effective planning and coordination of upgrade and expansion of colocation managed services such as sessions, servers, racks and power management
