VivCourt is a face paced growing trading company with multiple sites across the globe; a high frequency arbitrage firm that trades the markets using proprietary black box algorithms. Our job is to generate high returns in order to reward each employee and to fulfil our joint goal: to make a difference.

We believe that a business does not need to have profit as its sole objective to be highly profitable. We believe that financial wealth should be the by-product and not the end goal of our work. We believe that a focus on employees, on why we as individuals go to work each day, should be the real obligation of an employer. We believe that we can be highly competitive, aiming to be the best in our field, while our team reap high personal rewards. So we do what we do best, so we are in a position to support others to do what they do best.
