"I am employed as a senior trader at WEBB. When I think about my job, the first words that come to my mind are flexibility, entrepreneurial spirit and potential.
Flexibility comes in terms of tradable products and the freedom you are given: if you have the proper business plan and the data to back it up, you enjoy a lot of freedom within your risk limits. Moreover, flexibility comes also in terms of working from home or in the office: while being at the office is preferred, there are also smart-working options, for example to work from home during some days if needed.
Entrepreneurial spirit, on the other hand, is inside WEBB's own DNA. The company is growing rapidly in terms of scope of trading, markets and number of employees, while at the same time it is maintaining its focus on maximizing every available opportunity that the market presents.
Lastly, potential is what every employee has ahead: a path to a higher pay and a bigger role in the future. Since WEBB is a reality in constant transformation, the person has the possibility to shape his/her path and make a real impact in the growth of the company.
And these are only some of the benefits! Add personal development, an informal and friendly environment, great colleagues and a flat and open hierarchical structure to the mix, and you have an absolutely great place to work for, one that should be at the top of your considerations."
Luca, Senior Trader
"What I think is unique about WEBB is the freedom to walk your own path.
In this environment I feel encouraged to build products and to solve several problems that I think are valuable for the whole company. But the majority of those problems, indeed, are the ones that I have discovered by myself. As a matter of fact, quite often there is nobody directly asking me to build those products or to solve those problems, nonetheless the end results are greatly appreciated and can end up having a big impact overall. This is what WEBB can offer: the possibility to discover a need, and to think and build a proper solution from scratch.
In such an environment there are many opportunities to grow, to take responsibility and to gain ownership of your work, while – at the same time – we definitely work as part of a team and our singular activities are widely interconnected. Being a strong team player is as fundamental as being independent. So, the responsibility that you get on executing your own tasks also comes with the responsibility to connect them with a wider structure and to communicate with stakeholders and the other developers at every step of the execution.
Lastly, next to the work aspect I also really enjoy working with my colleagues. I have quite a few friends now which were/are colleagues at WEBB. Every Friday there is a "vrijmibo" (Friday afternoon drinks), which is a great time to learn about your co-workers as the people they are outside the office."
Wicher, Senior Software Engineer
"Fast paced company with an entrepreneurial spirit, in which you can take initiative and all kinds of ideas are encouraged to help the company grow and flourish. The financial markets industry is a dynamic and volatile industry, heavy competition and always a challenge to find the right people in mind and competence to join the journey of WEBB. If you are an educated professional and dedicated, this is a place to work with highly skilled professionals and ambitious people.
Due to the entrepreneurial spirit and fast growth over the past years, quite some processes are being upgraded, automation and optimization, to enable the fast growth in a sustainable way. Regulatory pressure in the industry is growing as well. Together with the internal requirements for high performance processes and systems, this environment is demanding and challenging. Ideal to learn the details of trading processes and financial markets dynamics.
The remuneration package is market conform and the focus is on the variable bonus that can be substantial.
Education and personal development is possible, especially on an individual level and on one's own initiative. There is no ‘education plan’ for specific roles. For Trading there are mandatory training and continuous education activities.
The atmosphere among colleagues is great. Professional and cooperative during work and projects, and family-like during company activities and Friday afternoon drinks."
Gijs, Head of Finance
"In joining WEBB as a software engineer, I've been warmly welcomed into a team of bright people. The environment is collaborative, encouraging learning and creativity - which makes problem-solving a rewarding experience.
There are many opportunities to work on challenging aspects of the business with immediate impact. In the process, you get to work together with people of different disciplines seamlessly. Besides work, our team likes to get together for food and drinks as well!
As it's growing at a fast pace, I'm curious to see where the road will take WEBB!"
Arne, Senior Software Engineer
"I am a junior software engineer at WEBB. The first thing that I noticed about WEBB (even during the first interview) is that everyone is so friendly! Since then, I still feel this sense of “warmth” from the people I have around.
But kindness isn’t the only big pro about this environment. In fact, everyone is so clever! I realized it on the weekly tech discussion that I attended - it was on my first day at WEBB, when I finally had the chance to meet the whole team. Well, at that moment I felt inspired by the brilliant people around me.
For me, as a junior, WEBB is the best solution to work at. Everyone is ready to help and share experiences, and -thanks to that- I feel that I am growing extremely fast! The general sense of “family atmosphere”, moreover, really helps to be productive. Every person on my team is always ready to help when needed.
Lastly, I’d like to mention our lunches: during mealtime we talk about everything except work. We share stories from our childhood, we tell about our original countries (that’s the big pro of being in a company widely international), or we share news and comments about the last evening. Our lunches really have the taste of a normal family lunch.
Since I started, I really enjoy every working day at WEBB!
p.s. it's a secret, but we have a “beer party” every Friday...!"
