  • Make our low latency, globally distributed trading system more reliable, efficient and scalable – no prior finance knowledge required!
  • $170K first year package, plus an abundance of perks and benefits
  • Relocation assistance provided if based outside of Sydney, including flights and accommodation
  • Start dates available for mid-2020 and Feb 2021

What you'll work on

Our Production Engineers are hybrid Software/Systems Engineers that ensure our global low-latency trading system never misses a great trade. Think a mix of Site Reliability Engineers & DevOps. Sitting at the crossroads between our Development, Infrastructure and Trading teams, you'll collaborate on complex engineering problems. Our industry thrives on constant innovation. We move quickly which means things can break occasionally. You'll support our trading system as part of a global team, deep-diving into technical issues to understand why things break and to stop them breaking again.

You'll also:

  • Partner with Engineers and Traders to learn our systems and business
  • Use a broad range of technologies to develop the system we deploy, manage and monitor our trading platform on
  • Challenge the status-quo, knowing we can always be faster, smarter and more reliable
  • Have full access to our technology stack to understand what it takes to win in some of the most competitive markets in the world

What you'll learn

We're proud of our rigorous, high-quality tech bootcamp. Don't know anything about finance? No problem. Unfamiliar with C++? We've got you. Our dedicated Head of IT Education built a program to equip you with the knowledge and skills to set you up for success.
We'll give you the autonomy to work on impactful projects complemented by mentorship from a Senior Production Engineer to guide your progress.

Who you are

You're an Engineer who loves writing code and experimenting with open source technologies or hacking on Linux. It pains you to unearth poorly engineered solutions and even more so to not fix them. You keep your cool under pressure and love having a challenge to solve.

In addition you're:

  • Naturally curious and enjoy exploring whatever you're currently passionate about in depth
  • Interested in emerging technologies and the Linux OS
  • Able to make decisions and communicate effectively under time pressure
  • Driven to improve the technical systems at the core of Optiver's success
  • Comfortable programming in at least one language (C++, Java, Python or golang)

Eligibility

  • A final final-year/Honours/Masters/PhD student or a recent graduate (up to 4 years)
  • Studying a Computer Science, Software/Electrical/Mechatronic Engineering or similarly technical degree
  • An Australian or New Zealand Citizen, Australian Permanent Resident or able to secure full working rights after graduating

Who we are

Optiver. It's a combination of the Dutch words for 'trading' and 'options'. And that's what we do. We're a leader in Options trading (and other financial products) on the world's financial markets.

At Optiver, we do things a bit differently to most businesses. We operate without clients, taking risks and reaping the rewards ourselves. We maintain an informal culture to make sure it's fun. We skip the mindless meetings and get on with it. And we celebrate high performance, individual excellence and doing better every day. We take serious things very seriously - like chasing wins and embracing the challenges of the market. We collaborate to solve open-ended problems in the most competitive market there is. We're about fast feedback and speedy solutions. Since we take the risk, we reap the rewards. And that's just how we like it. We collaborate to innovate. We share knowledge, ideas and the glory when everything goes right.

More than 1000 Optiverians around the world work to improve the market. Optiver's a quiet powerhouse of creative problem solving and collaboration. We like challenges. We love success. And we're proud of our culture, designed to give you plenty of opportunity and support to do amazing things.

What we offer

Optiver believes in getting better every day. Our internal learning and development programs are designed to help you get to the next level. With in-house experts, a structured learning program and plenty of opportunities to learn as you work, you're always developing new skills. Which helps when you're solving the most interesting problems in the world.

Optiver is a truly high-performing environment. We make life easy for you by taking care of the little things. Like lunch, which our in-house chefs prepare every day. And coffee, free from our barista. And fitness, with your free gym membership and access to group training sessions. There are massages every week, meditation training and lots of wellness perks. There are also plenty of ways to unwind, from our famous games room and social clubs to our many internal sports teams. And with a culture that celebrates wins, you can bet that from our monthly social events, annual trip, Christmas party and more, you'll find time to meet your fellow Optiverians and enjoy a party or two.

Does this sound like the future you're looking for? Take up the challenge and apply today!

Applications close on 13 April 2020. We recruit on a rolling basis, so the sooner you apply, the sooner you could secure your Graduate role!
