Attendees will learn more from recruiters about the application process, ask their questions during an insightful panel discussion, take part in breakout sessions and participate in a fun problem-solving exercise. There will also be the chance to network one-to-one with the recruitment team and register their interest for the summer internship opportunities.

The event is aimed at students who will be completing their studies in 2023 or 2024 and are studying a relevant STEM subject at university.  The key subjects include mathematics, statistics, financial engineering or related, computer science or similar, economics and engineering.

Exciting Opportunities

Internships at Jane Street offer candidates the chance to meet the team, learn about the firm and the world’s financial markets. The internships are designed to be educational, valuable and fun!

During this event, attendees will be introduced to four different internship opportunities, covering different business sectors: quantitative trading, software engineering, quantitative research, and business development. All internships are paid, and summer internships typically run for 10-12 weeks between July and September. Jane Street will be accepting applications in August for 2022 Summer internship.

Quantitative Trading Interns

Work with Jane Street’s experienced traders to learn about identifying, analyzing, and executing trading strategies, constructing quantitative models, conducting statistical analysis, building trading intuition, and more. Trading interns usually split their summer between two different trading desks.

Software Engineering Interns

Work with experienced dev mentors on projects that are wide-ranging and have real impact. Learn about trading through classes and build bots that compete on a simulated exchange. Past interns have built protocol compilers, hacked on the internals of our concurrency library, and built real-time visualization tools. Many intern projects are subsequently released as open-source.

Business Development Interns

Work with Jane Street’s business development, compliance, and operations teams to understand the regulatory and operational frameworks of various financial markets, and how they impact the implementation of the firm’s systems, processes, and trading strategies. Business development interns rotate through projects and mentors over the summer.

Quantitative Research Interns
