In Focus

Over the course of two days, select undergraduate and graduate students who self-identify with a historically underrepresented minority group will experience a fun and engaging introduction to Jane Street. Attendees will participate in classes, discussions, and activities that are structured to provide a broad overview of the interesting and creative work our trading, software development, and business development teams do.

Attendees participating in the software development program will receive an in-depth look into the ways we use computer science within our firm. They will learn OCaml, the libraries and tools we use in our daily work, and how to put them to use by building a computer game. Participants will also learn the fundamentals of electronic trading systems and write a program that trades on a simulated stock exchange.

Attendees participating in the trading program will learn about mathematical and financial topics such as probability, market structure, and arbitrage through a combination of short classroom lectures, group games, and mock trading sessions. These activities are structured to provide a foundation for and a broad overview of our work, and there will be plenty of opportunities for close interaction with our traders.

Attendees participating in the business development program will explore a broad variety of Infrastructure subgroups, including treasury, compliance, operations, and project consulting, to learn how we solve cross-departmental problems to support the firm’s growth. Case studies and problem-solving exercises will introduce participants to how we optimize funding and financing, set up new trading flows, respond to regulatory inquiries, and generally manage the complex mechanics that underlie Jane Street’s business. The program will give attendees a glimpse into the work that goes on in our business development internship and Rotational Development Program.

There will also be opportunities to connect with other attendees and employees from across the firm. This program does not require a prior knowledge of finance, only an interest in seeing what a career at Jane Street might look like.
