Optiver Company Presentation

We warmly invite Oxford students to come along to the Optiver Company Presentation.

Thirty years ago, Optiver started business as a single trader on the floor of the Amsterdam’s Options exchange. Today we are at the forefront of trading and technology, employing over 900 Optiverians from over 40 nationalities in Amsterdam, Chicago, Sydney and Shanghai.

We stick to what we’re good at: making markets in a wide range of financial products. Optiver brings together a multidisciplinary group of talented people who have a clear goal in common: continuous improvement exercised through creativity and collaboration.

The dynamic environment and the nature of work here means that your problem solving, creativity and analytical skills can be well leveraged in the pursuit of excellence.

Students will have the chance to learn more about Optiver’s history, trading and our Graduate and Summer Internship opportunities and also have the chance to participate in an interactive demonstration of ‘A life in the day of a Trader’ from a particularly eventful and historical day earlier this year. At the end of the presentation, there will be an opportunity for questions followed by networking with Optiverians from the Amsterdam office.

We will also have Chess Grandmaster, Anish Giri who Optiver is proud to sponsor, present to talk about his career, strategy, training and to challenge some students to a game of blitz chess during the networking session.

Please be aware that the Graduate and Summer Internship opportunities at Optiver are suited to students studying Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or equivalent.

We welcome members of the Chess society to come along for the Company Presentation and to meet Anish Giri in the networking session afterwards.
