Rotational Development Program
About the Position
The Rotational Development Program (RDP) is a full-time position that prepares you for a key cross-departmental role at Jane Street. During the program, you’ll spend your first year rotating through 3-5 Infrastructure subgroups, which include compliance, finance, settlements, risk, and more, before being placed in a home group that matches your interests and the firm’s needs.
During each of your rotations, you’ll work on projects that help you understand what each group does and what problems it helps solve within Jane Street. These projects can involve analyzing data, finding and solving bottlenecks in existing processes, and integrating new initiatives into our operational, regulatory, and technical infrastructure.
The RDP role combines big-picture project management with deep dives into detailed workflows, and the goal is to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of Jane Street’s business. Over time, your work will evolve from small pieces of larger initiatives to group-specific process improvements, and eventually to projects with implications for many groups across our firm.

- Excited to engage with diverse topics from the worlds of finance, technology, and the law; to evaluate processes and create informed, concrete proposals; and to proactively lead those proposals from start to finish
- Interested in developing a broad range of technical skills, from working with and analyzing data, to understanding and writing code
- Proactive, reliable, and courteous with strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills
- Eager to ask questions, admit mistakes, and constantly deepen their understanding
