Chief of Staff, Technology
Optiver was founded in 1986 as a market maker in equity options on the European Options Exchange (now Euronext) in Amsterdam. We have since then rapidly grown into a leading independent global arbitrage group, with offices in Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney. From the outset we placed a strong emphasis upon a thorough understanding of the dynamics of derivatives pricing and markets. This remains crucial today. Combined with cutting-edge information and analysis technology, it has led to the development of highly sophisticated arbitrage strategies - effectively trading momentary anomalies in the international marketplace. Optiver is now the largest derivatives trading group on both the Australian Stock Exchange and the Amsterdam Exchanges. Optiver's mission is to be one of the best arbitrage companies in the world. We aim to continuously develop an organisation in which people treat one another with respect and acknowledge one another's specific qualities. Optiver aspires to a growth which constantly presents all our people with fresh challenges.
I love building dependable, cohesive, innovative teams which deliver fast, intuitive, versatile software.
