Careers at OpenGamma

Why join OpenGamma?

Meet team OG. We’re a FinTech startup dedicated to reducing the costs of trading. With our deep quantitative expertise, we are building a cutting-edge, cloud-based service to help derivatives traders use their capital more efficiently and enhance their returns.

Our offices are based right in the heart of Shoreditch and Manhattan – and come with all of the standard startup perks: beer fridge, brownies, fresh fruit. But our best quality? Our people.

We are a small company, so every individual makes a huge difference. You won’t necessarily finish in the role you start in, but that’s because you shape your own role as you grow with the company.

We work completely transparently. From weekly team round ups to lunch and learns, we make sure the entire team understands what we’re doing as a business and where we’re trying to get to.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our people as much as the quality of our product. We look to hire only the strongest of candidates, eager to learn all they can from both industry and colleagues – and ready to immerse themselves in a modern and fast-moving startup environment.

If that sounds like something you would be interested in, we’d love to hear from you.

      Shared office spaces with all of the perks…

      We occupy shared spaces in both London and New York: The Office Group and WeWork. This gives us access to their exclusive office facilities, including their on-site gyms, midday massages, fresh burgers and salads. We can also use any of their spaces across the city.

      Central locations in major cities…

      London and New York are not just world-renowned as business hubs, but also as cities buzzing with culture and activity. We’re lucky enough to be based right in the heart of both of them. That means, at the very least, we’re walking distance from some of the best lunch spots and bars of East London and Midtown Manhattan.
