We're excited to host our fourth edition of Women in Trading and Technology (WiTT) at Jane Street. We're inviting students to spend three days in our London office to learn more about what we do and how we do it through a series of classes and activities. Attendees will receive an in-depth look into the ways we use math and computer science, as well as insight into the different roles that exist within our firm.

Selected students will arrive in London the evening of Sunday 9th December and will depart the evening of Wednesday 12th December. Jane Street will provide all travel to and from London, housing and of course food and drinks throughout the event.

Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm that uses innovative technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of markets to guide our business. We are a global liquidity provider and market maker, operating around the clock and around the globe, out of offices in New York, London, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam.

Founded in 2000, Jane Street employs over 800 people. We are always recruiting top students and the environment at Jane Street is open, informal, intellectual and fun. The dress code is casual, the kitchen is stocked and discussions are always lively. Teaching and learning are central activities through classes, mentoring and discussion.

In the trading program, students will learn about mathematical and financial topics such as probability, market structure, and arbitrage through a combination of short classroom lectures, group games, and mock trading sessions. There will be a main curriculum of core subjects, with flexibility to explore alternative areas of interest for those already familiar with a given topic. These activities are structured to provide a foundation for and a broad overview of our work, and there will be plenty of opportunities for close interaction with our traders.

Students selected for the software engineering program will learn about OCaml and the libraries and tools that we use in our everyday work, as well as the fundamentals of building electronic trading systems. The students will put these tools to use by writing the backend and UI for a computer game and a program that trades on a simulated stock exchange. These activities will involve a combination of classroom lectures, group games and exercises, and one-on-one mentorship.
