Over the course of four days in our New York office, a select group of self-identifying women, transgender and gender-expansive people interested in trading, programming, and business development will attend classes and activities to learn how math, computer science, and business development are used to solve challenges at Jane Street. Participants will also gain some insight into the many different roles that exist within our firm.

In the trading program, students 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.

In the software engineering program, students will learn about OCaml and the libraries and tools that we use in our everyday work, as well as the fundamentals of building electronic trading systems. The students will put these tools to use by writing the backend and UI for a computer game and a program that trades on a simulated stock exchange.

In the business development program, students 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.
