Trading at IMC

IMC is a fast, dynamic environment where you’re trusted to make decisions from day one. We trade different financial instruments in different ways, each of which requires different strengths:

Market Maker: Our Market Makers are highly skilled with mathematics and love problem-solving. Working closely with our technologists, they develop algorithms and execute trades through our world-class proprietary trading software. They’re comfortable with decision-making and adapting to changes rapidly.

Quantitative Trader: Our Quant Traders perform in-depth analysis to creatively interpret data, develop strategies and identify opportunities in the market. Where our Market Makers are the speed demons, our Quant Traders work on longer-term projects spanning large data sets. 

Positional Trader: Our Positional Traders have a passion for financial markets and an appetite for risk. Entrepreneurially-minded, they explore new strategies and make decisions based on their knowledge. 
As you progress through your training, you will gain experience in both trading styles. We’ll work closely with you, monitoring your skills, performance and preferences and help you find the trading career that is right for you.

What you'll do:

  • Start with a seven-week international traineeship in two of our global offices, becoming familiar with the different areas of our business while being trained by the world’s best Traders and Engineers. 
  • Develop, maintain and improve trading models, algorithms and systems.
  • Manage the execution and risk of complex trading portfolios.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with our Developers and Engineers to understand and improve technical infrastructure.
  • Solve complex problems and make decisions that will have a direct impact on the company’s trading profits.
  • Research new market opportunities.
  • Have a real-time connection to the world economy and gain the knowledge to act on it.
  • Be supported by a mentor specifically chosen to work with you and guide you through each step of your traineeship and onboarding process.  

What you'll get:

  • $200,000 total compensation in your first year, starting in February 2023 (Pro-rated for August starters).
  • Structured training, mentorship and professional development opportunities. 
  • An environment where creativity, teamwork and innovation are recognised and rewarded.
  • The chance to travel the world and work in our offices across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. 
  • A vibrant work environment with weekly social activities, regular team events and an annual company trip. 
  • A fully-stocked kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Complimentary weekly fitness classes and subsidised health and wellbeing programs.

What you have:

  • An academic background in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Actuaries, Finance or Economics with a minimum Distinction average, or equivalent.
  • Strong analytical skills and desire to solve complex problems.
  • A competitive drive to win and thrive in a team environment.
  • An inquisitive mind, self-sufficiency and resilience.
  • The ability to make decisions in uncertainty and remain focused under pressure.
  • A genuine passion for financial markets (no prior knowledge or experience is required).
  • The ability to commence in either February or August 2023.
