GET TO KNOW US | JANE STREET
Hi, I’m Kristen. I work in recruiting in the New York office and I joined in 2019.
WHAT DOES YOUR DAY-TO-DAY LOOK LIKE?
As far as my day-to-day, I would say I spend a portion of my time executing our recruiting initiatives, whether that’s our events or programs. And then I spend another portion of my time collaborating with others, thinking about new ideas on how to attract talent.
HOW OFTEN DOES THE RECRUITING TEAM COLLABORATE WITH OTHER TEAMS?
We regularly connect with teams outside of recruiting, whether it’s trading or technology, it’s really important that we exchange insights and that we’re aligned in meeting each team’s goals and needs.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CULTURE AT JANE STREET?
Something that stands out to me about our culture is that we’re all encouraged to share our opinions and our ideas, but we’re also reminded to listen to others’ opinions and ideas. Regardless of your tenure or your position or background, we can all learn from each other.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT JANE STREET?
I really enjoy that we’re always collaborating. We partner a lot inside of recruiting, but also with a lot of people outside of recruiting too. I also love that we’re always looking to innovate. We’re not afraid to try new things.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW HIRES?
Advice for a new hire would be to keep your eyes and ears open. There is a lot that you can learn from the colleagues around you. I would recommend that you go to events and talks, maybe join a social Slack. Just get to know the Streeters around you. Also, don’t be afraid to speak up. You were hired for your ideas.
