IMC Trading

CASE & SPEEDDATES

About IMC
IMC is a leading global market maker, using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell
securities on multiple trading venues worldwide. We provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving
efficiencies for buyers and sellers.
We operate globally from offices in Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Our employees work closely
together in multidisciplinary teams, making our success possible.

Technology 
At IMC, technology is not a department, it is at the heart of everything we do. Our
technologists push the limits of possibility, and then look beyond. In our fast-paced environment, short
feedback loops mean projects worked on in the morning can enter production the next day.

Trading
Although our traders come from many backgrounds they all have one thing in common: they
are at their best solving complex problems. Their insight into global events, market shifts and pricing
ensure we are trading in the right place, at the right time.

CASE

We’ll challenge you with an assignment that will help you see how your skills apply to financial markets. Together with two of our traders/developers, you’ll develop a trading strategy and test it on real-world data – a perfect opportunity to better understand the complexities in designing trading algorithms, and what it’s like to do this at IMC. We will build our prototype in Python, so please be prepared. If you have no experience with Python then MATLAB will work as well. We’ll also use the opportunity to give you more information about trading and technology at IMC. Here you’ll have a chance to ask all your questions about our business, life at IMC and more.
