GET TO KNOW US | JANE STREET
Hello. I am Minjie. I’m a software engineer here at Jane Street. I’m working with the Cybersecurity team in the Hong Kong office. I started back in 2019.
DID YOU USE OCAML BEFORE WORKING AT JANE STREET?
I did not have any experience in OCaml before I started at Jane Street. I only had limited experience in some functional programming during university. All developers in Jane Street will go through OCaml bootcamp, and once you have learned all the basics you can learn specific libraries a team uses when you’re actually working with a team.
WHAT CLASSES HELPED YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR JOB AT JANE STREET?
The course that I took that really helped me at Jane Street is Software Engineering Workshop. It is a course that taught me how to collaborate with other people within a software engineering team and working with large codebases.
WHO ARE YOUR END USERS AND WHERE DOES YOUR WORK GO?
One of my main projects is our internal permissioning system. It’s used by everyone in the firm. Other than that, I also work on a bunch of small tools within the Cybersecurity team improving our internal networking visibility.
WHAT IS COLLABORATION AT JANE STREET LIKE?
Collaboration at Jane Street happens on all kinds of scales. You might sometimes reach out to a different team for one single question, or sometimes multiple teams might come together, collaborate, and work on a larger initiative. As a software developer in cybersecurity, there are two aspects of my work that requires reaching out and collaborating with people outside my team. As a developer, I need to help onboard other teams to use our internal permissioning system and help collect feedback about the system and to try to improve it. Other than that, for the cybersecurity aspect of my work, I need to try to triage the alerts and reach out to people from other teams to piece together a complete story of what happened.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE CULTURE AT JANE STREET?
Dev culture and Jane Street culture are very consistent with each other. People in Jane Street are all very friendly, helpful, and open to discussions with you about anything.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT WORKING AT JANE STREET?
My favorite part of working at Jane Street is all the people that I’m working with. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and they are always open to suggestions.
