Strategy and Product at Jane Street

The Strategy and Product interview process

“I really appreciate the amount of space you have to solve problems your own way at Jane Street. There are always resources available to guide you if you get stuck, but for the most part, as long as you’re doing reasonable things, it’s up to you to decide how to approach a project.”


“An idea that especially resonated with me is not being afraid to admit mistakes. Here at Jane Street, mistakes are not seen as a failure or a testament against your capability but as an opportunity to learn and improve. The sooner a mistake is found and shared, the better.”


“Probably one of the coolest things I’ve learned being an SP is how to code in OCaml, which is awesome. I’m in this sweet spot of understanding the business side of Jane Street while also having some of the tools needed to implement a lot of the ideas we come up with.”


The next great idea will come from you
