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.

Founded in 1989, we are an ambitious, innovative company and identified early on the importance

technology would play in the fast-paced evolution of trading. This entrepreneurial spirit still drives us

today and can be found in all of our offices around the world.


We now operate globally from offices in Europe, the US, and the 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.

Business Support - Around the world, IMC’s business support teams are essential for sustaining our

success. In our dynamic environment, we have many exciting challenges and multidisciplinary

opportunities to shape our operations and make a real impact.


Our employees are our greatest asset so we give them lots of responsibility and the support they

need to make a difference. Our flat structure fosters a culture of openness and collaboration,

encouraging the sharing of ideas and knowledge. It makes no difference if you have been with us for

three days or three years, the best idea wins.

While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun; whether solving complex challenges or in team

building, leisure and sporting activities. IMC also enables its employees to contribute to a

better society through our foundation.
