Strategy and Product Internship, May-August




Strategy and Product


Strategy and Product

About the Program

Our goal is to give you a real sense of what it’s like to work at Jane Street full time. Over the course of your internship, you will explore ways to approach and solve exciting problems within your field of interest through fun and challenging classes, interactive sessions, and group discussions — and then you will have the chance to put those lessons to practical use.

As an intern, you are paired with full-time employees who act as mentors, collaborating with you on real-world projects we actually need done. When you’re not working on your project, you will have plenty of time to use our office amenities, physical and virtual educational resources, attend guest speakers and social events, and engage with the parts of our work that excite you the most.

If you’ve never thought about a career in finance, you’re in good company. Many of us were in the same position before working here. If you have a curious mind, a collaborative spirit, and a passion for solving interesting problems, we have a feeling you’ll fit right in.

About the Position

As a Strategy and Product Intern*, you’ll learn how we solve problems across departments to support the firm’s growth in an incredibly competitive global market. 

Our Strategy and Product department sits at the intersection of several teams, including Trading, Technology, Compliance, Finance, Operations, and more. With this unique, holistic perspective, interns are able to see how all parts of the firm interact and intersect with each other, getting a comprehensive overview of our business.  

During the program, you'll work on live projects that combine big-picture thinking with deep dives into data and documentation. You might help identify and resolve bottlenecks, automate existing manual processes, or integrate new trade flows into our operational, regulatory, and technical infrastructure. In the process, you will coordinate closely with several internal stakeholders and groups to gather information and feedback. SP Interns returning full-time will spend their first year of employment engaged in a training curriculum called the Rotational Development Program.

*Our Strategy and Product Internship combines the previous Business Development and Tech PM Internships. We recently rebranded the internship name to more accurately reflect the roles and responsibilities of the position.

About You

We don’t expect you to have a background in finance or any other specific field—we’re looking for smart people who enjoy solving interesting problems. We’re more interested in how you think and learn than what you currently know. You should be:

  • Planning to graduate in 2025
  • Interested in developing a broad range of technical skills, from working with and analyzing data to understanding and writing code
  • Able to evaluate processes and create informed, concrete proposals (which you’ll proactively lead from start to finish)
  • Reliable and courteous, with strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills
  • Eager to ask questions, admit mistakes, and constantly deepen your understanding
  • Has analytical experience using systematic problem solving (ie: through STEM coursework, previous work experience, extracurricular activities, etc.)
  • Fluency in English required

Base salary is $175,000.
