The interviewer at Optiver seemed she was full of crap, boasting a lot about how Optiver rules, how they are harder, etc. Sydney is an expensive place to live compared to Melbourne, and in spite of that she mentioned the base compensation would be around merely 120k (which is close to what I earn), but that bonuses are amazing.
Dec 01, 2020 · I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Optiver (Chicago, IL) in September 2019. Interview. Hackerrank followed by behavioral phone screen and then onsite. Very fast process, fantastic coordination, fully recommend 10/10. Onsite consisted of market making games, lunch with employees and a Q/A session with the CEO.
