An Insider's view of IMC Trading

What's something quirky about your company?

IMC is proactive about giving! What impresses me is not the financial generosity (which is large) — it's the time generosity. We have two giving managers who make sure everyone gets a chance to participate. Whereas in other companies, philanthropy feels abstract and mainly a tax write-off, here it is woven into everyday office culture.

Stephan

Hardware Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We tackle complex, massively scaled projects and thrive on a quick turnaround cycle. Since we're our own clients, everyone is their own product manager. This frees us up to focus on the hardest parts of problems, not aesthetics. The code we push is trading around the world within a day or two, and as a result we see immediate results of our work.

Theo

Software Developer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I started at IMC as an intern. I’d never studied anything finance-related before. Through training, IMC brought me up to speed in a way that was fun, interesting and made me excited to learn about trading. I also think about problems differently now: there is never one set answer but multiple potential solutions to any problem.

Veronica

Software Developer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

I’ve been at IMC for nine years. When I started, we were a trading company with good technology. Now, we’re a technology company that trades. Traders used to be nervous when we were doing upgrades. Now, if we go a day or two without being able to upgrade, traders start craving the new thing that’s coming.
