Position Description:    

Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a unique focus on technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of markets to guide our business. Our entrepreneurial culture is driven by our talented team of traders and programmers. We are a global liquidity provider and market maker, operating around the clock and around the globe, employing over 800 people in our offices in New York, London, Hong Kong and Amsterdam. The markets change rapidly, and we need to change faster still. Every day, we come to work with new problems to solve, new systems to build and new theories to test. We’re always looking for people to join us and help come up with that next great idea. Our trading is based on our own proprietary models and on busy days we engage in over a million trades. Technology is at the core of how we approach trading, and we consider ourselves as much a technology company as a trading firm. We use OCaml, a statically-typed functional programming language, as our primary development language, and have the largest team of OCaml developers in any industrial setting.

Traders work in teams to seek out and trade on pricing inefficiencies, develop models, manage risk, investigate new products, and push into new business areas. Experienced traders teach and oversee the less-experienced. New traders serve as assistants while they learn the ropes, getting increasing responsibility as they demonstrate their ability to handle it.

These jobs are highly quantitative and technology driven. You should be excellent quantitatively, with a strong understanding of probability and statistics. You should be effective communicators in a close knit team setting, motivated, competitive and eager to learn. Previous experience or course work in finance, business, or economics is not required. We are interested in hiring responsible, motivated, adaptive, and logical thinkers with strong quantitative skills.

Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. No finance background necessary.
