20 Fenchurch

Jane Street’s London office recently moved into a shiny new building at 20 Fenchurch in the heart of the City. The large, south-facing facade of 20 Fenchurch was so shiny, in fact, that it made the news. Much went into shaping the new space to our needs (and wants), and it shows. Jane Street, and…

eth0: summer edition

Sometimes being an intern at Jane Street is just fun and games. A few weeks ago we held an Electronic Trading Hackathon (eth0) for our summer intern class, with interns in New York and London participating simultaneously. Interns paired up into thirty seven teams to build the best automated trading bot they could, and then the…

Movers, Shakers, Streeters, Makers

In June we spent an evening at the Makery, a pop up maker space in NYC. Our task was to make a Rube Goldberg machine that could get a small plastic ball to hit a target. There were 4 groups, each of whom had the task of moving the ball to the next group. The…

Jane Street Shuffle

Recently our tech team got together for an evening of shuffleboard at Royal Palms. Even if it was only for a few hours, the tropical atmosphere of the retro Palm Beach, FL-themed venue was a welcome change from this year’s snowy New York winter.

Ugly Jumper Day

    Among many fine Jane Street traditions: Ugly Jumper Day in our London office. On the day of our holiday party, we did the tradition proud. This year New York got in on the fun, too.

Over/Under

About 40 Jane Streeters gathered on Randall’s Island for our inaugural Over/Under 30 soccer match. It was an epic contest between the young and the less young, ending, after overtime, in a tie. While both teams had some unconventional notions of optimal strategy, everyone had a great time. On to rematch 2015!

Wintern Season is Here

    As we get ready for our wintern class to arrive, we’ve been thinking a lot about what a great time we had with our summer interns while they were here. We can’t wait to welcome a new group of interns to Jane Street in just a few weeks.

Jane Street Spin Class

We’ve been wanting to do an event at a spin studio for a while – luckily, Halloween provided the perfect excuse to burn some calories in anticipation of all the candy we knew would be coming our way. Thanks Flywheel Tribeca for a great ride!

Escape the Room

Streeters like puzzles, so it’s no surprise that we really enjoy Escape the Room games. Escape the Room is the real-life counterpart to a similarly-named genre of flash games: a team is trapped together in a themed room and have one hour to escape. To escape, players must find and solve hidden puzzles, such as…

Cooking class

    One common thread across all our locations is an appreciation for great food. Both the London and Hong Kong offices recently took cooking classes and got a few action shots, as well as some great pictures of the final product.

Golf at Chelsea Piers

    Streeters enjoyed perfect weather as they teed up last night at Chelsea Piers. The view of the sunset over the Hudson wasn’t too bad, either.

Small Events Night

Do you think all we do around here is code, sleep, trade, and repeat? Well you would be wrong… while we do work hard, we know how important it is to have fun, too. We love stepping out of the office and exploring the different activities NYC has to offer. For example, just before the…

Family Day at Liberty Science Center

In the past, Jane Street celebrated Take Your Child to Work Day in the usual way, but we came to realize that: 1. Our open work environment (and lack of individual offices) makes it tough to find places for all of our children to sit, and 2. The average age of our “Junior Streeters” is…

Summer Days Are Here Again

Here at Jane Street we’re preparing for our biggest intern class yet. On top of all the interesting work and educational projects we’ve got planned, we have a wide-ranging line-up of guest speakers, including Daryl Morey (“The Billy Beane of Basketball”), chef Dan Barber, journalist and science writer Matt Ridley, and Apollo Robbins, just to name…

Wintern is Coming

Every January we have winter interns who join us from schools with a long enough winter break for a mini-internship. This January was our largest class of winterns ever, with over 30 students mainly from Harvard and MIT. As always, these students bring in fresh ideas and a lot of enthusiasm. Even though they were…
