IMC financial markets started on the trading floor in Amsterdam in 1989, as a market maker in Dutch single stock options. When European exchanges started to transform into electronic market places, IMC was at the cutting edge of this transition and one of the first to start electronic trading. Today we are one of the world’s leading proprietary trading firms and a key market maker in various products listed on exchanges throughout the world. Our edge comes from keeping our technical people in very close proximity to our traders: putting the best technology available to work and collaborating with each other on innovative ways of using and improving it. IMC employs around 500 people and has offices in Amsterdam, Delft, Zug, Chicago, Sydney and Hong Kong.
We engage primarily in algorithmic arbitrage and market making. While our primary business is high frequency trading, we also consider ourselves a cutting edge technology firm. The mix of high performing algorithms, state of the art software, hardware and the latest technology to connect to the exchanges gives us our competitive edge. Our success is based on a unique combination of talent and technology, with interaction between specialists such as Traders, Quants and IT Specialists.
If you are driven by results, fascinated by a world “Where Trading meets Technology” and are eager to work with a high level of responsibility, then working for IMC financial markets might be something for you!
