An Insider's view of Optiver

What projects are you most excited about?

I’ve really come to appreciate what “proprietary” in “prop trading” means for our development culture. It enables a quick feedback and iteration loop where improvements are sometimes identified, designed, & implemented in a matter of hours. It also promotes a close-knit team culture where ideas come from all levels.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of my favorite aspects of Optiver is the openness of our company culture. We’re always encouraged to learn from each other and share ideas across teams, and this spirit of collaboration really permeates every interaction you’ll have.
