Work where
your mind matters

Jane Street’s internships offer an exceptional opportunity to learn about the firm and the world’s financial markets.


While proximity to graduation is an advantage, we hire students at many different points in their academic programs.

Internships take place in all three of Jane Street’s offices. Most summer interns also get a chance to visit a foreign office during their experience.

Past interns have reported that the best part of the internship is the rich educational experience. Every week brings a mix of finance theory and technology classes, mock trading sessions, and guest speakers, on top of careful one-on-one mentoring with experienced traders and technologists.

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.

These 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.

Trading Interns

Work with experienced traders to find and analyze arbitrage strategies, hedge risk, and search for new opportunities. Trading interns usually split their summer between two different trading desks, and spend a week in one of our overseas offices.

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, and spend a week in one of our other offices.

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.

Research Interns

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