Still have questions? Here are our responses to the most frequently asked questions.
What is that actually?
Algorithmic trading (also called algo-trading) is the general colloquial term for the automated trading of securities by computer programs. We find this a little abstract and like to describe it as follows: we are keeping up with the times and implementing our trading strategies in software, where they are much more secure and work more efficiently than is possible manually. The daily trading results are a good indicator of just how well we are doing.
Oststeinbek? Where is that?
Oststeinbek is a district on the outskirts of Hamburg, just under 20 minutes from Hamburg Central Station by underground train or car. Oststeinbek is remarkably inconspicuous. It’s not Germany’s Silicon Valley yet neither is it some kind of provincial backwater.
What does SSW-Trading offer me?
A lot! An exciting workplace with a great deal of variety, 30 days holiday, breakfast, refreshments and snacks and a freshly cooked lunch every day. This comprehensive package is free of charge. Table football, ping pong, Playstation... just as you'd expect :-). English lessons – if you want them. Sports events and team parties. And of course the best team ever!

Anything else we can discuss in a personal interview.
Do I have to be tech-savvy to work at SSW?
No, that is not necessary. We also offer equally attractive positions in other areas like our back office and other administrative services.
What is the SSW culture like?
How we interact with one another is very important to us. This means that we offer our personnel much more than just good old-fashioned table football. If five of our team want to do something together then we handle the whole thing – go-carting, concerts or musicals or various sporting events. And we always welcome suggestions for activities we can do together.
Does SSW manage any money on behalf of clients?
No, we are not an asset managing company. Everything we do is done with our own capital and at our own risk.
