About us

Algorithmic Trading Group (ATG) Ltd. is a young, vibrant and growing electronic proprietary trading firm, with offices in Amsterdam and Hong Kong. ATG trades the major future and equity markets in Europe, Asia and America on an almost 24/5 basis.

Although small-sized, we have been consistently growing since our 2009 Hong Kong inception and always on the lookout for talented team players who are enthusiastic about the financial markets and want to be part of a growing and ambitious company. 

We’re proud of our open culture and believe in empowerment and autonomy instead of supervision. Challenging projects in an atmosphere that’s informal and collaborative, no day is the same!

Job description

As a Junior trader at ATG, you will be working with a team of highly skilled traders, researchers and engineers with the goal to beat the market and to push our strategies to the next level.

Monitoring our automated trading strategies, keeping track of position changes and daily trade/P&L reporting are your key responsibilities. In close collaboration with ATG’s developers you constantly try to improve our strategies and trading systems as well. 

A junior trader starts with a short but extensive training period in our Amsterdam office where we focus on trading systems, our strategies and its principals. Learning by doing, monitoring live strategies under close supervision will jump-start your career as a trader at ATG.

After 4-6 weeks you will have the opportunity to work in one of our offices in Amsterdam or Hong Kong, or work remotely from a location of choice in Asia. As we are trading around the world on a 24/5 basis, flexibility in working hours is required.
