IMC is a leading global market maker using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues worldwide. From our offices in Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney, we provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers.


- We trade in the most competitive markets across the globe. Our software makes millions of trading decisions daily. We win by making better and faster decisions than our competition. As a software developer you'll be working alongside traders to implement strategies which will challenge you to be creative with your implementation. You'll need to produce solutions which compete in the extremely latency sensitive environment, whilst managing complexity.
- You'll be working in a highly motivated team, controlling end-to-end product development. We work in an environment where slight oversights can be extremely costly, while new features can be extremely profitable. As a team we aim to balance the race to production with software quality and testability. You'll be placed in an environment consisting primarily of C++ and Java. We have a build chain which has been designed around the concept of daily production releases. A variety of systems and technologies keeps life interesting.
- Upon joining you will be expected to manage your own time and tasks. We rely on our developers to drive change by taking feedback from traders, and shaping that into an implementation. Your ownership of the task continues until a working production release. Our most successful developers comfortably work in any part of our stack.
- The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years relevant experience.


- One of the most fun aspects of the job is that we have a very quick feedback loop. We release early and often to get incremental benefits as they are developed
- We operate at the bleeding edge of technology. If something new can potentially bring an advantage, we will actively invest in developing and utilising the solution
- We really believe in sharing knowledge and technology between the different offices. Much of our technology stack is shared between all 3 regions, and we provide opportunities to travel between the regions both for personal growth and to assist where it has the biggest impact
- To get the best results, we encourage everybody to gain an understanding of both the trading strategy and how exchanges work on a technological level
- Working at IMC is also an opportunity to learn about financial markets. We know from experience that a lot of people really enjoy learning about a field beyond their immediate area of expertise; it's one of the things that makes this job more interesting than others
- We employ a broad range of people with varying backgrounds. What they have in common is their superior technical expertise, their extraordinary smarts and their collaborative approach. We will not accept less.
