Number of employees: 400
Position: Junior Trader
Since 2004, Flow Traders has been a principal trading firm and one of the world’s largest liquidity providers, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). Our headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in New York, Singapore and Cluj accommodate more than 400 employees. Throughout the years, Flow Traders has received the industry’s recognition, winning numerous awards and has been listed as a company since 2015.
Flow Traders is a privately held financial firm that keeps pace with global markets. Our business expands each day by adding new products across an ever-broadening range of markets around the globe.
Flow Traders stays ahead of the competition by focusing on technology and niche competencies in markets where every second counts. This requires access to the best information and the ability to respond instantly. To achieve this, Flow develops its own software in-house. Our team of software developers works in partnership with experienced traders to identify and execute tomorrow's strategies, making Flow a daily pioneer in professional trading.
In order to maximize our performance and facilitate our international growth, Flow Traders heavily invest in our employees. The backbone of our success is the collection of creative doers, thinkers, and above all, believers who form our company. Flow Traders fosters a strong team-oriented culture which rewards people for their contributions to the company as a whole rather than only in their direct area of responsibility.
The Junior Trader Position
As a trader with Flow you manage and optimize our daily position (pricing and trading) in a wide range of financial products, including equities, bonds, derivatives and complex structured products. You formulate innovative trading strategies and – in close collaboration with our software engineers – develop trading models and tools that you will implement on the trading desk.
Training & Development
Because of the specific nature of the work-environment, we do not expect you to plunge headfirst into your new job. Instead, you will start by following in a three months intensive in-house training program that covers all the intricate details of the trading processes. As a member of an informal team, you will then gradually take on more responsibilities, start monitoring markets and only then start making split-second portfolio adjustments that are at the heart of our success. From trading to devising tactics, and from contributing to new tools to implementing actual programs: you help shape our trading strategy.
What we offer
Flow Traders offers you an exciting job and lots of opportunities within the most dynamic of environments with an excellent compensation package. We provide our employees with the best working environment, the latest technology and continuous support. On top of that, Flow Traders provides free breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
