LIFE AT IMC AS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MANAGER-IMC FOUNDATION

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

IMC is a leading global market maker, using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities on multiple trading venues worldwide. We provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers.

Founded in 1989, we are an ambitious, innovative company and identified early on the importance technology would play in the fast-paced evolution of trading. This entrepreneurial spirit still drives us today and can be found in all of our offices around the world.

OUR TEAM

We now operate globally from offices in Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Our employees work closely together in multidisciplinary teams, making our success possible.

Technology - At IMC, technology is not a department, it is at the heart of everything we do. Our technologists push the limits of possibility, and then look beyond. In our fast-paced environment, short feedback loops mean projects worked on in the morning can enter production the next day.

Trading – Although our traders come from many backgrounds they all have one thing in common: they are at their best solving complex problems. Their insight into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we are trading in the right place, at the right time.

Business Support - Around the world, IMC’s business support teams are essential for sustaining our success. In our dynamic environment, we have many exciting challenges and multidisciplinary opportunities to shape our operations and make a real impact.

OUR CULTURE

Our employees are our greatest asset so we give them lots of responsibility and the support they need to make a difference. Our flat structure fosters a culture of openness and collaboration, encouraging the sharing of ideas and knowledge. It makes no difference if you have been with us for three days or three years, the best idea wins.

While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun; whether solving complex challenges or in team building, leisure and sporting activities. IMC also enables its employees to contribute towards a better society through our foundation.

THE IMC FOUNDATION

Through the IMC Chicago Charitable Foundation, we aim to provide opportunities for young people in Chicago to develop to their fullest potential. We focus our grantmaking in three areas: improving the school experience for students, using sports and experiential learning to help students develop life skills, and strengthening early childhood development. We also help IMC employees engage with the community through volunteering (remote and in-person), financial matching gifts, and giving-related social events.

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.
