Title: Campus: Software Development Internship (2017 Start)
In an industry where one bug can cost six-figures, striving for perfection is crucial. Clean, well-tested, understandable code is far more important than clever tricks. As a member of our Chicago based software development team, you will be given immediate responsibility writing code that matters. Our teams are highly collaborative, striving to find the right solution instead of the quickest, easiest, or first. We pride ourselves on our apprenticeship model to growth and development, whether you are joining us in a full time development role or for our 10 week internship program. You will work closely with senior developers and be given increasing levels of responsibility and autonomy as you prove you understand the Optiver way. If you join Optiver, your software development skills will be taken to another level in a dynamic and highly competitive industry.
