WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT A TRADING CAREER AT IMC?
IMC trades a wide range of financial instruments, in many different ways. This means we look for different types of traders; from the quantitative minds who enjoy the mathematical side of trading to more operationally focused personalities who thrive on interacting with brokers over the phone.
Our traders share one thing in common, though: they are at their best when solving complex problems. Their insights into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we always trade in the right place, at the right time.
BROKER TRADING AT IMC:
IMC is a high frequency trading firm. In addition to electronic trading, we have a strong trading presence in the broker market (trading on the floor and executing trades with brokers). We are looking for a recent graduate to join IMC as a Broker Trader. Here your decisions have direct impact on the company’s trading profits and there is constant opportunity to truly impact our trading strategies. We hire the best because responsibility and ownership starts on day one at IMC.
WHAT YOU 'LL DO:
During market hours, you’ll respond to quotes in the broker market—over the phone and on the squawks with the trading pits. When the markets are closed, traders actively build and enhance the quality of our electronic trading strategies, requiring superior analytical, mathematical, and computing skills. We’re seeking someone who loves participating in markets and building tools to succeed in them. As a trader, you will have the freedom to find your niche within the firm and excel.
Work in a team of broker and screen traders to optimize trading
Take calls from brokers and make markets throughout the day
Build and maintain relationships with brokers
Perform trades analysis to improve trading
Develop, maintain and enhance trading models, algorithms, systems and positional risk
Research new market opportunities
YOUR FIRST SIX MONTHS:
You will participate in a global traineeship program focused on enhancing your knowledge of trading, programming, and mathematics. The training module consists of in-house courses and trading simulations developed and delivered by our experienced traders and engineers. At IMC, we foster a supportive environment allowing you the freedom to contribute and assume real responsibility early in your career.

BS in Finance, Economics, Mathematics or related field of study
Interest in financial markets is a must, but no prior knowledge or experience required
Superior numerical, analytical, and problem-solving skills
Ability to work successfully in a fast-moving and competitive environment
