At Optiver, we're not about suits, we're not about ties, and we're not about red tape. In other words, we don't sweat the small stuff. What we want is results! Ours is an exciting, innovative environment where people are encouraged to have fun. We offer work that will challenge you intellectually every day. Our atmosphere is highly informal and our structure comparatively flat. This gives our people the flexibility they need to be innovative, to research their ideas and to act upon them.

At the same time, we also want you to have a life. We know a happy, healthy workplace is a more productive one. Yes we work hard, but we never lose sight of what's important in life. We encourage our employees to pursue interests outside of work, as well as offering a chance to get involved in things like in-house poker tournaments, a wine club and sporting teams. We also have a games room with a pool table, pinball machines, foosball and TV, to give our people a chance to catch up with colleagues around the office and take a break. We champion teamwork throughout the business, by fostering communication between departments both in a professional and social environment.

We offer a range of benefits to help you feel fit and healthy, and on top of all this we support our local community and give employees the opportunity to direct company donations to the charity of their choice.

In every employee we recruit, we look for the 'O' factors, to help us maintain the Optiver culture. Teamwork, Communication and Integrity are essential to ensure that we continue to operate successfully in the future. We look for people who will Champion the Optiver way, acting as an internal role model for others and embracing the Optiver brand, whilst still bringing original ideas and opinions to the business.
