IT Audit Manager - Trading and Technology Firm


Job description

Are you ready to dive deeper into a dynamic, fast paced, multinational company? Do you want to turn your IT audit education and experience into value-adding advice? Would you like to join a market-leading trading and technology firm? Then you might be our Group IT Audit Manager!

What you’ll do

As IT Audit manager you will work in a team with three other experienced auditors. You will work on audits that are relevant for the local Optiver entities, our Supervisory Board and Management Board. These audits can cover the entire spectrum of our organisation: from Information Security to mid-office and from Risk related topics to tax and remuneration. Their common purpose: we aim to add value to the organisation by making meaningful recommendations for improvement of processes and to strengthen the controls. The success of our operations depends on our custom IT systems and your role will focus on auditing precisely these systems. The existing Group Audit team primarily has a financial and operational background, so you will have sufficient room to make your mark on the IT audit function.

Group Audit is based in our Amsterdam office, but it performs the global internal audit function. Therefore it is responsible for audits in our foreign offices: Chicago, Sydney and Shanghai. With the team, you will visit each office once or twice per year for one or two weeks at a time. Besides audits Group Audit is sometimes involved in special projects on request.

So in short, you will:

  • Perform audits as part of a small team on a broad spectrum of relevant topics for Optiver;
  • Work on IT and sometimes on other areas of our audits;
  • Be based in Amsterdam, but regularly visit our foreign offices.

You can be sure that you will be challenged to perform at your best in a young, complex and dynamic organisation!


What you need to be successful

  • You have finished your education as IT auditor and wish to develop your expertise as an internal auditor;
  • You have at least eight years of relevant work experience, preferably within a big-four audit firm;
  • You are fluent in English;
  • You are willing to travel about five times in total per year to our offices in Chicago, Sydney and Shanghai, each time for periods of one or two weeks;
  • You are an intelligent and pragmatic team-player;
  • You are interested in trading and market-making (prior work-related experience is not required).
