Junior Trader position

In this challenging position 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.

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.

Your profile

  • University degree and a demonstrable interest in trading
  • Understanding of financial products
  • Knowledge of Excel
  • Innovative & creative high potential with excellent mental arithmetic skills
  • Ability to reason logically and deliver under pressure
  • Ability to spot opportunities and the assertiveness to seize them
  • Maximum of three years’ work experience
  • Competitive, outgoing, communicative, creative and able to deliver under pressure
  • Excellent English communication skills


After a three months intensive in-house training program, you'll be assigned to a small team with responsibility for covering certain products. You'll keep a sharp eye on the progression of your trading strategies throughout the day and make adjustments as needed in split-second reactions to the market. You'll be on the constant lookout for new products and new ways to trade them. You will be involved in the full cycle of research for new products and strategies, building prototypes, testing, implementing and monitoring strategies. You'll work in a demanding environment with plenty of challenges and accompanying rewards.
