About the Position

We are hiring enthusiastic instructors who have a background in computer programming for our Academy of Math and Programming (AMP) in New York City. This is a temporary, six-week-long summer role, which includes one week of training before the program begins. Dates of the program are still being determined, but will likely take place from early July through early August. 

AMP is a program for recent high school graduates of diverse backgrounds who have experienced barriers to access and opportunity within advanced STEM education. It offers students a rigorous and rewarding curriculum that focuses on topics near and dear to Jane Street, including mathematics, computer programming, data analysis, and game theory.

You’ll work alongside an excellent group of instructors and teaching assistants to administer challenging and interactive courses and activities — including classes, problem-solving, and game playing — and supervise students as they spend their summer learning.

Instructors will teach curriculum developed specifically for AMP and will have the opportunity to share feedback and make changes to the materials. Computer science teachers will focus on algorithms, programming, and software development. You'll also be responsible for some additional coordination and planning before, during, and after the program. 

Jane Street deeply values the quality of our educational programming, and we compensate our high-caliber instructors accordingly. Travel, housing, and meals will be provided. Additional compensation, which is reflected in the listed salary range, is available for staff who serve as residential advisors during the program.
