“Sponsoring NumFOCUS is an opportunity for us to show our gratitude, invest in business-critical tools and give back to an organization that we truly admire.”
“At IMC, traders, quants and developers rely on NumFOCUS sponsored projects every day,” said Andy Adams, Partner and Head of Technology at IMC.
“It is not uncommon to see quants and traders work together to prototype a new analytics-rich GUI using Bokeh. We use Pandas and Jupyter for everything from supporting trading decisions to driving algorithm improvements, and our data engineering teams around the world use the Hadoop and Kafka stack to handle petabytes of intra-day trading data to support analytics operations for traders. Sponsoring NumFOCUS is an opportunity for us to show our gratitude, invest in business-critical tools and give back to an organization that we truly admire.”
NumFOCUS is grateful to IMC, and all of our corporate sponsors, for their generous and vital support for our open source software projects.
As one of the world’s leading market makers, IMC trades on more than 100 venues around the world and provides liquidity in more than 200,000 securities. Besides our on-screen market making in many asset classes globally, we are also a Designated Market Maker (DMM) on the New York Stock Exchange and our ETF desk in Europe leverages our experience, advanced technology and deep liquidity, to offer competitive pricing directly to qualified counterparties.
Founded in Amsterdam in 1989, IMC was among the first to value the importance of technology and innovation in the evolution of trading. As we invested we grew, from 2 to more than 500. Today we operate globally – across time zones and continents. Our developers thrive on tackling complex, massively scaled projects and a quick turnaround cycle. With the space to focus on the hardest parts of problems, not aesthetics, the code they push is trading around the world within a day or two, and as a result they see the immediate results of their work.
From our offices in Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney, developers and traders collaborate to design and develop the software, hardware, advanced networks and algorithms that drive our trading strategies. Join the team.
