This winter, Jane Street is excited to host our first WiSE programme in London! We are inviting self-identifying women, transgender, and gender-expansive people in their first year of university to spend two days in our office learning more about who we are, what we do, and how we do it.
Individuals 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. The curriculum will demonstrate how our many teams, including trading, software engineering, research and business development collaborate every day to solve complex problems. Participants will also attend a social event to get to know Jane Street and other programme participants.
Students will arrive the afternoon of Sunday, 7th January and will depart the morning of Wednesday, 10th January. Jane Street will provide all travel to and from London, housing, and financial assistance for meals and other incidentals. Our office is located in Devonshire Square, close to Liverpool Street, and the hotel where you’ll be staying is just a few minutes walk away.
Please submit a resume and a 150-word statement about yourself and why you are interested in attending.
The deadline to apply for this event is Sunday, 19th November 2023 at 11:59pm GMT.
We will update you on your application status by Monday, 11th December.
Please note: This programme is designed for first year students to get an introduction to Jane Street. The programme does not require a prior knowledge of finance, only an interest in seeing what a career at Jane Street might look like.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck with the application process and we hope to meet you soon!
