Working at IMC Chicago

When IMC made the decision to expand across the globe, it was no surprise that it chose Chicago.  As the center of the derivatives market, Chicago was and still is the prime spot to be for the US markets.  Inspired by entrepreneurship, our Chicago office has grown from 2 people to 150 since we began trading in 2000.  A commitment to technology and innovation brought us to where we are today: a diversified trading firm active in many different asset classes on all major exchanges in the US.

Our business model is built on teamwork and we encourage the best ideas regardless of title.  We continuously seek synergies between trading and technology in cross functional projects and teams.  The collegiate spirit is ever present at IMC and we encourage our people to challenge each other and to say what they think. Open communication and optimism makes our culture unique. If you’re a critical thinker who enjoys logical reasoning you’ll feel right at home; adaptability and a drive for continuous improvement will ensure you succeed.  

Being part of a great team is important in any job and because IMC Chicago employs people from across the world, you’ll have endless opportunities to find your place on our team and build a network of friends.

Ashley Scott, University of Illinois "marathon runner"

Helpful Interview tip: Don’t get stuck on finding the correct solution to a problem. We are more interested in how you work through a problem, and the ideas and questions you have throughout the process. Sometimes a question we ask may not even have a right answer!

Shelley Hunt, University of Illinois "avid Chicago sports fan"

Helpful interview tip: Don’t get discouraged if you have no experience in finance. We don’t care, that’s the easy part we can teach you! We are more interested in finding people that love working on new technologies and delivering cool projects to end users (and watching them go into production that day in some cases!).
