Optiver's research team performs the quantitative research required to improve our trading performance, such as designing and optimizing trading algorithms, analyzing and visualizing large amounts of data, and mathematical modeling of market dynamics. Consequently, some of our days are spent programming or analyzing data and some are spent on the trading floor trying out new strategies with the traders. This is the place for people who loved their studies in physics, math, engineering, economics or computer science and are keen to use their skills to do cutting edge work in the financial industry.
