Software Developers (Full Time, Summer Internship, Australasia Summer Internship, Off-Cycle Internship)
We are big believers in functional programming, using OCaml, a statically-typed functional programming language, as our primary development language. We also believe in the value of open source software, using it in our daily work and releasing hundreds of thousands of lines of our own code as open source.
Candidates for the developer role should have:
- Top-notch programming skills
- Deep experience with—and love for—technology. There’s no specific checklist; we use software to approach a variety of problems, so we’re interested in everything from machine learning to systems administration to programming language design.
- Strong interpersonal skills. Software development at Jane Street is highly collaborative, and we are looking for people who can work effectively in small, close-knit teams.
We don’t expect you to have experience with functional programming, OCaml, or finance; we’re happy to hire talented developers and teach them what they need to know.
For Software Development interns, you are given the opportunity to engage in software and research projects that have real and lasting impact and work on at least two projects in different areas, collaborating closely with full time developers.
