IMC Trading

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.

We 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.

Career Opportunities

Graduate Trader, Graduate Quant Trader or Graduate Quant Researcher but also Graduate Software Engineer and throughout the year different internships and working student positions. We have the ambition to grow significantly over years to come so plenty of opportunity to apply! In terms of background we require a technical/quantitative field of study, genuine interest in financial markets (no experience needed) and something that makes you stand out from others, like sports, personal projects, association work or other extracurricular activities. Please take a look at our website for a more detailed description of our current open positions. 

Workshop – Market making game

Are you keen to learn more about a technology-driven trading firm? At IMC, we’ve historically focused on pure, low-latency execution-based trading. But now, we’re leveraging our world-class technology and trading expertise to run operational trading strategies. We’ve got our sights set on worldwide index options, and we’re leading the charge on liquid worldwide indices. In addition to our robust broker network, we also provide liquidity to counterparties directly – including hedge funds, asset managers and other large market players. During this event, you will be trading on a live exchange with the other participants. Your task is to find and apply a trading strategy that YOU think will result in the highest profit at the end of the tournament. Of course there is a nice prize to win! Are you up for the challenge?

If you participate we will ask for 30-60 min of prep work to make the workshop as efficient and fun as possible!
