    Becoming Part Of Our Team

    The bar is set high and with good reason. To continue innovating in our category, we select those whose brilliance will shine. We value potential over current expertise, which is why we hire candidates from a wide range of fields. Our recruitment process includes interactive experiences that test your analytical ability and give you a taste of what it means to be a market maker.

  • FLOW TRADERS

    Offices: Amsterdam (headquarters), New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, London, Milan, Paris
    and Cluj
    Number of employees: 560+
    Positions: Graduate Trader & Trading Intern
    An introduction to Flow Traders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZO_KI9XnWg

    Flow Traders is a principal trading firm founded in 2004. We are a leading global technology-enabled
    liquidity provider, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). Flow Traders is at the intersection of
    finance, cutting-edge technology and scientific research. 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. Financial markets have rapidly shifted from trading in the pit
    to algorithmic trading, and our business model has made us an entrepreneurial and competitive firm in
    the FinTech space. We use our principal technology platform to quote bid and ask prices in thousands of
    ETP listings. We are also active in other asset classes such as bonds, FX, cryptocurrencies and similar
    financial products. On top of that, we provide liquidity to institutional counterparties off-exchange across
    all regions!

    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, 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.

    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 strategies.

    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!

    At Flow Traders we work in a fast-paced, high-intensity environment where each day brings complex
    challenges. We are a technology company, operating in a financial environment and use our principal
    technology platform to quote bid and ask prices in thousands of ETP listings and similar financial
    products.

  • At Picnic, we’ve been revolutionizing the way people buy their groceries since 2015 – and we’ve come a long way since then. We provide our rapidly-growing customer base with an affordable and sustainable service through cutting-edge technology, efficient planning, and a fleet of electric vehicles.

    One of the main things that makes Picnic different is that we do almost everything in-house. Forecasting. Warehouse systems. Partnerships. Fleet strategies. Internal and external applications. We find it gives us more freedom when it comes to trying out new and innovative ideas!

    Many of our tech colleagues love working at Picnic because of the impact they can make in our fast-paced, startup environment. It also helps being surrounded by an international and diverse team of ground-breaking entrepreneurs, creative minds, and data wizards!

  • ASML is a high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands. We manufacture complex lithography systems that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits (microchips). Every day, you use electronics that our machines help make possible – maybe even the device you’re using right now.

     

    Changing the world, one nanometer at a time

    In the past three decades, we have grown from a small startup into a multinational company with over 60 locations worldwide and annual net sales of €18.6 billion in 2021. Our customers include all the world’s leading chipmakers like Intel, Samsung and TSMC. We provide them with everything they need – hardware, software and services – to mass produce patterns on silicon through lithography.

    Through the development of smaller, faster and more energy efficient microchips, our world has evolved. At ASML, we believe that the semiconductor industry is in a unique position to help tackle some of society's toughest challenges.

     

    Thinking years ahead

    Behind ASML’s innovations are people who think ahead. Our researchers, engineers, scientists and manufacturing specialists, as well as our high-tech hardware and software experts, all work at the edge of what’s possible.

    We invest around €2.5 billion per year on R&D, meaning our teams have the resources to experiment, test and push the boundaries of technology. They work in close-knit, multidisciplinary teams, listening to and learning from each other.

     

    Innovating to the extreme

    Working at the cutting edge of technology offers unique challenges, driving our teams to innovate across all fields and disciplines. More than 20 years of sustained R&D brought us the development of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. As the only supplier of this advanced lithography technology, our engineers are responsible for continuing to develop and perfect these complex systems. One example of this complexity is how EUV light is generated. First, a 30-kilowatt laser fires at tin droplets 50,000 times per second, hitting each droplet twice. The laser vaporizes the tin droplets, creating a plasma hotter than the surface of the sun. This interaction emits EUV light at a wavelength of 13.5 nanometers. And all of this takes place in a vacuum-sealed system

    From patterning nanometer-sized structures on a microchip wafer to creating light using lasers and liquid metal,  the work we do can be hard to wrap your head around. Yet  every day around the world, ASML people are solving these seemingly impossible problems and pushing technology to new limits.

     

    Working toward a sustainable future

    We contribute to the advancement of technology and we’re committed to helping develop a more sustainable future. Our strategic sustainability focus areas, including minimizing waste and maximizing resources and supporting corporate citizenship initiatives such as promoting technical education in the communities where we operate, form the foundation for how we conduct our business.

     

    An ideal environment for growth

    With ASML, you can consider your career path a playground. We have various tools in place to support you in driving your own development, from classroom training to personal coaching, acceleration programs and more.

    Doing what we do requires unique perspectives and innovative ideas. That’s why we’re proud to have employees from diverse backgrounds. As part of our team, you have freedom, trust and support to experiment and offer your creative point of view.

    In our dynamic environment at the forefront of tech, we take your work-life balance and well-being seriously. We support you in taking the initiative to foster your health and happiness and make the most of your career with us. 

     

    Be part of progress

    We’re a global team of over 32,000 people of 121 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s top tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe, Asia and the US.

  • Geld overmaken, de voorraad in een winkel checken of je pakketje volgen. Zonder dat je het weet heb je op verschillende manieren al regelmatig te maken gehad met Capgemini. Samen met onze opdrachtgevers creëren wij namelijk business- & IT-oplossingen die aansluiten op de behoefte van de klant, concrete resultaten geven én die hun concurrentiepositie verbetert. Onze experts leveren dus echt een impactvolle bijdrage aan het dagelijkse leven van onze opdrachtgevers en hun klanten. Met ruim 290.000 medewerkers wereldwijd opereren wij in bijna 50 landen en helpen wij onze klanten op weg met hun digitale transformatie. Onze (internationale) opdrachtgevers komen uit verschillende sectoren. Denk aan de financiële wereld, publieke sector en retail. Maar ook aan electronics & high tech en de transport & distributie industrie. Zo helpen wij onze opdrachtgevers bijvoorbeeld bij het ontwikkelen van internetbankieren, het inrichten van bedrijfs- en logistieke processen, het verwerken en analyseren van klantdata of op het gebied van security. Stuk voor stuk uiteenlopende en uitdagende projecten dus. Wil jij hier ook aan bijdragen? Kijk dan vooral op www.werkenbijcapgemini.nl

  • Wil jij jezelf ontwikkelen en tegelijk iets betekenen voor de samenleving? Impact on society. Met tech oplossingen. Dat vinden wij dus de normaalste zaak van de wereld, maar maakt werken bij Topicus wezenlijk anders. Dagelijks maken miljoenen mensen gebruik van onze platformen, dus ook de mensen in jouw sociale omgeving. Tech-oplossingen waar de zorg, het onderwijs, de financiële wereld en het sociale domein écht wat aan hebben.

     

    Op alle vlakken waar we met onze tech-kennis en vakmanschap kunnen helpen, blijven we markten zelf actief veranderen. Zo geven we de regie aan de burger, vergroten we zelfredzaamheid en verkleinen we kwetsbaarheid. Daar wil jij (als student) toch ook aan bijdragen?

     

    Dit doen we allemaal vanuit onze ‘hometown’ Deventer waar we onze eigen ‘Topicus Campus’ ontwikkelen. Maar ook vanuit Utrecht, Andelst, Groningen, ’s Hertogenbosch, Leiden, Wageningen, Gouda en zelfs in Vietnam en Roemenië. En onze ambities reiken nog verder. Met ruim 1.000 Topicanen hebben we bij Topicus innovatiedrang en slagkracht om deze ambities te bereiken.

     

    Als ‘Topicaan’ kun jij elke dag slimmer en inhoudelijk uitgedaagd worden. Door in complexe vraagstukken te duiken of te experimenteren met de nieuwste technologieën (natuurlijk naast dat we werken met bewezen technologie). Jezelf en elkaar nóg beter maken en skills verder ontwikkelen. Dat kan met het Ontwikkelkompas, de Topicus University, gildes, de coachingspool, de Topicus Technology Master en andere toffe events. Omdat we meerdere markten bedienen, heb je toegang tot een enorme schat aan kennis, ervaring en tools. Overigens, deze kennis delen wij graag, ook met mensen buiten ons bedrijf! Met onze eigen jaarlijkse TopiConf, de conferentie voor én door Topicanen. En van meet-ups tot gastcolleges en ook in Codekrakers.

     

    Verder vinden wij het belangrijk dat iedere Topicaan goed in zijn/haar vel zit. Daarom krijg jij de vrijheid om je eigen werktijden te bepalen en hoe je thuis- en op kantoor werken met elkaar in balans brengt. Uiteraard in overleg met je team, want je moet wel samen de klus klaren. Met het TopiFit programma zorgen we ervoor dat jij mentaal en fysiek lekker in je vel zit.

     

    Om tot nieuwe inzichten te komen begeleiden we jaarlijks zo'n 100 wo- en hbo studenten met hun stage- of afstudeeropdracht. Je krijgt de kans om meteen volwaardig mee te werken aan een van onze uitdagende projecten. Daar leer je het snelst van je ervaren teamleden én kun je echt meewerken aan nieuwe ideeën voor uitdagende ICT-projecten. We werken nauw samen met diverse onderwijsinstellingen en universiteiten en kennen de geldende kaders van jouw opleiding. Ook brengen we je in contact met collega-studenten zodat je er nooit alleen voor staat.

     

    Nieuwsgierig geworden? Kijk dan op werkenbijtopicus.nl voor alle verhalen en het actuele overzicht van onze (student) vacatures. Of neem contact met ons op via 0570-662662
