The key to Optiver’s success as a leading market maker is our people. We place a strong focus on education and internal growth, making the Campus Recruitment team pivotal to the development of our Amsterdam and London operations. As a Campus Recruiter, you will be responsible for hiring into our Internship and Graduate programs, as well as attracting top talent to our early engagement initiatives. Have an innovative idea? You will have both the freedom and resources to make it happen – we believe in autonomy, ownership and providing a platform for everyone to make an impact. We know our best work is done together, so you’ll both collaborate with and potentially mentor other Campus Recruiters across our Amsterdam and London teams

With a focus on continuous improvement, we participate in the safeguarding of healthy and efficient markets for everyone who participates.

Our Amsterdam office is where it all began. Over 35 years ago, Optiver’s business started with a single trader on the floor of Amsterdam’s European Stock Exchange. Since our 1986 founding, Optiver’s Amsterdam office has grown into one of the most dynamic and exciting trading floors in Europe. Our culture reflects the Dutch capital city’s progressive, innovative and inclusive nature. With its unique spirit, Amsterdam is the ideal hub for our teams to trade a wide range of products from listed derivatives to cash equities, ETFs, bonds and foreign exchange.
