About Optiver

We work hard every day, working as a team to be better than we were the day before. This enables us to improve the market.

As a leading global electronic market maker, we focus on pricing, execution and risk management. We provide liquidity to financial markets using our own capital, at our own risk, trading a wide range of products: listed derivatives, cash equities, ETFs, bonds and foreign currencies. Our independence allows us to objectively improve the markets and provide efficiencies for end investors. In short, we work to improve the market for everyone who wants to trade.

More than one thousand Optiverians globally support our mission to improve the market. Thriving in a high-performance environment, we pioneer our own trading strategies and systems using clean code and sophisticated technology. Naturally, finding the best talent we can is integral to staying at the cutting edge. And keeping people engaged, challenged and connected is how we maintain our success.
