IMC is a world-renowned market maker with offices in Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific. We use algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues. Our vital role, at the centre of the financial markets, provides liquidity for buyers and sellers worldwide. In the late 1980s, IMC quickly identified the importance of technology in the fast-evolving trading environment. Our passion for innovation continues to drive us today. Although our company has grown rapidly over recent decades, we still approach our work with the same entrepreneurial spirit, with an emphasis on continuous improvement and innovation. We like our people to think for themselves and we give them the responsibility and support they need to make an impact. This means real work as well as dedicated training programmes and mentors. While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun – whether solving complex problems or taking part in team-building, leisure and sporting activities. IMC also enables its employees to contribute to a better society through our foundation.

You will have ample opportunities to learn and develop yourself both on the job and trough training. IMC encourages all associates to bring their ideas to the table and not be intimidated to question an approach or idea if there’s a better way to solve a problem. We employ a broad range of people with varying backgrounds. What they have in common is their superior technical expertise, extraordinary intellect and collaborative approach.

That’s why we moved to a flexible hybrid model that allows for both. IMCers are given tools to do their job in comfort, no matter where they work from. While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun. As part of the IMC family, you’ll get to enjoy our annual company trip and numerous social events throughout the year, as well as Friday drinks at our in-house bar.
