Quantitative Trading Internship 2025 - Singapore
As our Quantitative Trading Intern, you'll spend your summer in the heart of Optiver's dynamic trading floor in Amsterdam. Under the guidance and support of industry experts, you'll collaborate on complex problems that have real-world impact on the financial markets.

From derivative theory training to hands-on trading experience, you'll have deepened your understanding of the quantitative trading industry by the end of the 8-week internship. Plus, if you've excelled over the summer, you could receive an offer to return as a Graduate Quantitative Trader in our Singapore Office.

What you'll do

Requiring quick thinking, a critical mindset and bold action, our internship is as close as you can get to real trading experience. Led by our in-house education team that consists of ex-traders and engineers, the comprehensive training program offers you the opportunity to:
  • Deep dive into trading fundamentals, from theoretical concepts to financial markets, strategies and cutting-edge technology.
  • Apply your knowledge in a simulated trading environment, honing your skills with hands-on practice.
  • Learn directly from an experienced trader, gaining exposure to various trading desks and experience the financial markets first-hand.
  • Push your limits and accelerate your growth in a fascinating and high-performing environment.
