Work where
your mind matters

Jane Street’s internships offer an exceptional opportunity to learn about the firm and the world’s financial markets. We put an enormous amount of effort into making our internships an educational, valuable, and fun experience for our interns.

We think of our internships as an investment in the future of Jane Street, and for good reason – a significant fraction of our new employees over the past several years were once interns!

Internships We Offer

All of our offices follow a slightly different internship schedule, but no matter where you’re based we will always do our best to work around your academic commitments.

Typically our summer internships run for 10-12 weeks between May and September. Each office also offers unique off-cycle internships based on academic scheduling.

Our schedules are often flexible, so if this timing isn’t exactly what you had in mind, don’t worry; we can work out the details later.

Quantitative Trading Interns

Work with our experienced traders to learn about identifying, analyzing, and executing trading strategies, constructing quantitative models, conducting statistical analysis, building trading intuition, and more. Trading interns usually split their summer between two different trading desks.

Business Development Interns

Work with our business development, compliance, and operations teams to understand the regulatory and operational frameworks of various financial markets, and how they impact the implementation of the firm’s systems, processes, and trading strategies. Business development interns rotate through projects and mentors over the summer.

Software Engineering Interns

Work with experienced dev mentors on projects that are wide-ranging and have real impact. Learn about trading through classes and build bots that compete on a simulated exchange. Past interns have built protocol compilers, hacked on the internals of our concurrency library, and built real-time visualization tools. Many intern projects are subsequently released as open-source.

Quantitative Research Interns

Construct mathematical models, learn about relevant academic research, explore new ideas, and execute studies using Jane Street’s massive research infrastructure.


Is the timing of the internship flexible? I’m not available in summer — can I come at another time?

Each office offers unique off-cycle internships based on academic scheduling. Please refer to the apply page to see what options are available in your local office.

Is the internship paid? Is housing provided?

All of our internships are paid. Internship accommodations vary by office and time of year, but during most of our summer internships, housing is provided.

I’ve graduated this year/am about to graduate/have already graduated — can I do an internship?

Yes, students who have already graduated can still participate in an internship.
