WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT A TECHNOLOGY CAREER AT IMC?

At IMC, technology is not a department; it’s at the heart of everything we do. Since the late 1980s, we’ve pioneered the use of technology to advance the development of market making and low-latency trading. Today, our technologists work alongside IMC traders in multidisciplinary teams to 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.

YOUR JOURNEY AS AN IMC WORKING STUDENT ENGINEER

This is your chance to gain broad, hands-on tech industry experience while working part-time alongside your studies. Over the course of several months, you’ll rotate through three different engineering teams – IMC’s Data Platform team, our Systems Platform team, and our Network Engineering team. Your time investment with each team will depend on your specific skills and interests, which will be assessed during an interview.

Each rotation will involve you in real-world projects and tasks – from supporting on smaller, 2-3 week assignments to leading complex, long-running projects. You’ll also play an important operational role, helping to keep our systems up and running and ready to trade. What happens next is up to you: the hands-on nature of this role is designed to give you a clear sense of the kind of work you’re best suited to, whether it’s developing the internal cloud or building world-class data platforms. For those who excel, there may be the prospect of a full-time engineering role with IMC post-graduation.
