    Coming from a degree background in Computer Science, I wanted a career start that allowed me to continue learning, whilst utilising my existing skill set. I started at First Derivative in the Trading Technologies stream of the Options Programme, which trains me in the leading trading platforms that are used by the world’s largest financial institutions. First Derivative gave me the opportunity to learn, gain invaluable experience and travel, all at the same time.
