WHAT WE OFFER

We hire from the top 10% of the global tech and finance community and we reward accordingly. Beyond this, we provide our employees an extensive range of training and personal development opportunities, as well as the chance to work with the latest technologies.

We offer a vibrant office environment, a free catered breakfast and lunch and a ready supply of fresh fruit, snacks and drinks. Our office is a great place to work from, but so is your home. That’s why we moved to a flexible hybrid model that allows for both. IMCers are given tools to do their job in comfort, no matter where they work from.

While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun. As part of the IMC family, you’ll get to enjoy our annual company trip and numerous social events throughout the year, as well as Friday drinks at our in-house bar. There will also be regular opportunities to give back to society through our charity foundations.
