Where Options Clearing was Born
Chicago, the nation’s third largest city, has been the headquarters of OCC since our founding in 1973. Chicago is where the first options in the nation were cleared. When people in finance think options, they think Chicago.
A great career opportunity in risk management, software engineering, platform development, data science, or quantitative analysis, to name a few, isn't the only thing on offer when you're part of OCC. The lifestyle in this town of almost 3 million dwellers is unparalleled. Although Chicago is immediately recognizable by its soaring skyline set along the shore of Lake Michigan, it's also home to an extraordinary set of residential neighborhoods and suburbs, each one with its own characteristics and history.

OCC is committed to achieving a diverse workforce through application of its equal opportunity policy. OCC provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, marital status, disability, national origin, ancestry, military or veteran status, sexual orientation, pregnancy, genetic information, gender identity and/or expression, or as otherwise protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
Numerous studies have shown that people from groups that are traditionally under-represented in financial services apply to jobs only if they believe they meet 100% of the requirements. We want to break down this mindset to further diversify our workforce.
We encourage you to review our open positions and apply if you think your experience may be a match, even if you do not meet all of the qualifications. Your perspective may be an element we need to continue building innovative solutions to support the markets and market participants we serve.
OCC is a globally recognized entity that clears a multitude of diverse and sophisticated products. We want to reflect this in the diversity of our workforce.
