Flow Traders

Since 2004, Flow Traders has been a principal trading firm and one of the world’s largest liquidity providers, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). Our headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in New York, Singapore and Cluj accommodate more than 300 employees. Throughout the years, Flow Traders has received the industry’s recognition, winning numerous awards and has been listed as a company since 2015.

Flow Traders is a privately held financial firm that keeps pace with global markets. Our business expands each day by adding new products across an ever-broadening range of markets around the globe. 

Flow Traders stays ahead of the competition by focusing on technology and niche competencies in markets where every second counts. This requires access to the best information and the ability to respond instantly. To achieve this, Flow develops its own software in-house. Our team of software developers works in partnership with experienced traders to identify and execute tomorrow's strategies, making Flow a daily pioneer in professional trading.

Team effort 

In order to maximize our performance and facilitate our international growth, Flow Traders heavily invest in our employees. The backbone of our success is the collection of creative doers, thinkers, and above all, believers who form our company. Flow Traders fosters a strong team-oriented culture which rewards people for their contributions to the company as a whole rather than only in their direct area of responsibility.

The Junior Trader Position 

As a trader with Flow you manage and optimize our daily position (pricing and trading) in a wide range of financial products, including equities, bonds, derivatives and complex structured products. You formulate innovative trading strategies and – in close collaboration with our software engineers – develop trading models and tools that you will implement on the trading desk. 

Training & Development 

Because of the specific nature of the work-environment, we do not expect you to plunge headfirst into your new job. Instead, you will start by following in a three months intensive in-house training program that covers all the intricate details of the trading processes. As a member of an informal team, you will then gradually take on more responsibilities, start monitoring markets and only then start making split-second portfolio adjustments that are at the heart of our success. From trading to devising tactics, and from contributing to new tools to implementing actual programs: you help shape our trading strategy. 

Who we are

We are a leading global technology-enabled liquidity provider, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). We are able to grow our organization further, thereby ensuring that our trading desks in Europe, the Americas and Asia provide liquidity across all major exchanges, globally, 24 hours a day. Founded in 2004, we continue to cultivate the entrepreneurial, innovative and team-oriented culture that has been with us since the beginning.

What we do

As a technology company operating in a financial environment, we use our principal technology platform to quote bid and ask prices in thousands of ETP listings, as well as similar financial products. We also provide liquidity to institutional counterparties off-exchange across all regions: the Americas, APAC and EMEA. Market participants benefit from higher execution quality and lower overall trading costs, while the markets benefit from greater efficiency and more transparency. 

As a principal trading firm, we trade for our own account only. We do not have clients, nor do we provide any investment services or ancillary services to others. Our strategies are designed to use information that is publicly available and we use fairly simple, non-controversial and transparent order types. We are a strong supporter of fair, transparent and orderly markets. 

Our Culture

Unique, ‘one team’-driven culture 

Flow Traders fosters an entrepreneurial, innovative and strong team-oriented culture, which rewards people for their contributions to the company as a whole rather than only in their direct area of responsibility. Our culture is underpinned by the four-eyes principle and by disciplined risk awareness at every level of the organisation.

We strive for continuous improvement and hold ourselves to industry-leading compliance and regulatory standards. We have a strong track record in recruiting, developing and retaining talent. We nurture our unique ‘one team’ philosophy by stimulating the sharing of ideas and best practices through employee rotation both within and between our offices. The seamless integration of teamwork, ETP market expertise, risk management, technology and connectivity enables us to offer competitive pricing, while always remaining in control.

What we offer 

Flow Traders offers you an exciting job and lots of opportunities within the most dynamic of environments with an excellent compensation package. We provide our employees with the best working environment, the latest technology and continuous support. On top of that, Flow Traders provides free breakfast, lunch, and snacks. We have our private gym where our health coaches provide our people with the right personal sports programs. Every year we go on a company trip and have the best Christmas party!
