This summer, Jane Street is hosting the eighth annual Jane Street Women in STEM event. We are inviting women graduating from high school this spring to spend two days learning more about what we do and how we do it.
Students who are selected to attend this event will receive an in-depth look into the ways we use math, computer science and probability concepts in trading, as well as insight into the different roles that exist within our firm. Participants will hear from and interact with various traders and technologists, and learn how they transitioned from their college concentrations in STEM fields to a career at Jane Street.
Some highlights of the event include a talk from Sandor Lehoczky and a panel of new hires explaining the different roles at Jane Street, including trading, software engineering, and quantitative research. We will also enjoy a few virtual social events, which will provide additional opportunities to get to know Jane Street and the other women attending the event.
While we wish we could host the event in our NYC office, located in the heart of the Financial District, we are equally excited to make this first remote Jane Street Women in STEM event special, informative and interactive.
