About Flow Traders



Jacob Bontiusplaats 9 Amsterdam, 1018 LL NL

Company Size


Since 2004, Flow Traders has been a principal trading firm and one of the world’s largest liquidity providers, specialised in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). Our headquarters in Amsterdam and offices in New York, Singapore, Hong Kong and Cluj accommodate more than 400 employees. Throughout the years, Flow Traders has received the industry’s recognition, winning numerous awards and has been listed as a company since 2015.

Our non-hierarchical approach stimulates innovation and development. We value creative minds and out-of-the-box thinkers and challenge them to make full use of their capacities. Our demanding, high-paced environment continuously puts us to the test.
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.

At Flow Traders, we focus on professional and personal development; we encourage our people to be the best at anything they do by offering the right training. On top of that, we have our private gym where our health coaches provide our people with the right personal sports programs. We invest in our hard working people, because they hold the key to our success.

Tech team

As a member of our technology team, you have the potential to make a global difference from day one. Out technologists, developers and engineers have an entrepreneurial mind-set, bringing innovative ideas and smart solutions to the table. Our creative and quick-witted team members are challenged to use their technical skill sets to solve problems in a fast-paced trading environment.

Our technology department consists of three strategic units:

  • Development: Designing and building the software suite that keeps Flow Traders miles ahead of its industry peers.
  • Quality Assurance: Benchmarking, documenting, and testing the proprietary trading software developed for back, mid, and front office.
  • IT: Deploying and maintaining the software and hardware infrastructure that supports all day-to-day activities at Flow Traders.

A day in the life

Morning is normally started with a standup meeting with your team. This is an opportunity to catch up on progress of development, raise problems and discuss plans for the day. A business representative is also present, so questions to trading can be resolved instantly. After standup, you go back to your desk to program, review code on pull requests submitted by colleagues, and discuss functionality with traders. Sometimes a production issue is raised by support, and help from development is needed to provide advice. At lunch time, you join your team for lunch in the canteen and enjoy a company-provided lunch. During the day, if there are no pressing issues or you feel that you need a break, you can unwind at the pool table or table tennis, or do a workout at the gym. After the day is done you can join your colleagues to celebrate a successful release or just socialize at our bar.
