Our UNBOXED program is part of our commitment to give as many people as possible the chance to learn more about what we do and how we do it.
An invigorating three-week hybrid program, UNBOXED is intended for 2023 high school graduates who are interested in STEM topics and self-identify with an underrepresented racial or ethnic minority group.
The first two weeks of UNBOXED are virtual, culminating with a final week in-person at our office. Students will take small, group classes online and dive into topics like statistics, probability, programming, and analytical problem solving. After spending a few days learning about each of these disciplines, students will have the opportunity to visit our New York office. In New York, students will connect with Jane Street traders, researchers, software engineers, and strategy and product team members to focus on a particular subject matter. This may mean translating the foundations of mathematics to the financial markets, coding in OCaml, or analyzing business case studies.
There is no background in finance or STEM required to participate in UNBOXED, only an interest in learning more about these topics that are near and dear to all of us at Jane Street. All attendees of UNBOXED will be given a $2,000 scholarship to put toward future educational opportunities, in addition to other perks. Participants must be authorized to be employed in the U.S. without a visa sponsorship.
