Over the course of a Jane Street internship, you’ll explore ways to approach and solve problems through challenging classes and interactive discussions, with endless opportunities to put those learnings to use. We offer opportunities in a variety of disciplines — quantitative trading, software engineering, quantitative research, strategy and product, and more — which put you directly in the action, giving you the opportunity to collaborate and connect with Jane Streeters across teams and offices.

If you haven’t thought about a career in finance, you’re in good company. Many folks at Jane Street don’t come from a financial background. If you have an inquisitive mind and a collaborative spirit, we have a feeling you’ll fit right in.

A global experience

Our internships typically run for 10-12 weeks between May and September. We also offer a variety of unique off-cycle internships, based on academic scheduling, at each of our office locations.

What a day might look like:

Breakfast: Our breakfast buffet is open until 10:00am daily.

Class: Learn about writing performance-sensitive code, or machine learning, or even Poker!

Project Updates: Connect with your mentor on the status of your internship project.

Lunch: Browse the buffet, or order from a selection of nearby restaurants.

Independent Project Work

Class: Join your fellow interns as you “mock trade,” learn why Jane Street uses OCaml, or understand the complexities of heuristics and biases.

Event: Attend a sports game, grab dinner with your team, or explore the city with other interns!

“We have been working on improving this program for well over 15 years and every single year, it's better than the last.”

-Sandor Lehoczky, Trader

“One of the things that surprised me the most was how much I'm actually doing interesting work all the time, whether it's working on a project or doing some mock training activity. I always feel like I’m in the action here.”

-Jake, 2022 Trading Intern

“Everyone's intellectually humble and recognizes that their own understandings have limitations. A lot of the decisions made at Jane Street are not top down, it's made by the people solving the problems.”

-Shaquille, 2022 Software Engineer Intern
