Jane Street invites you to apply to our new WiSE programme!
For: Women starting university in Autumn 2020
Dates: 19th - 21st July 2020
Women in STEM Education (WiSE) is a three-day programme hosted by Jane Street that is designed for women starting university in autumn 2020. It is an exclusive opportunity for new students to gain a detailed look at the careers that exist within our firm, and to learn how math, computer science, and probability concepts have a real-world impact on the work we do.
Participants will interact with traders and technologists to learn how they transitioned from studying STEM subjects at university to careers at Jane Street. Evening social events will provide students with an opportunity to speak with Jane Street employees and other women attending the event in a more casual setting.
Selected students will arrive in London on the evening of Sunday, 19 July and will depart the evening of Tuesday, 21 July. Jane Street will provide all travel to and from London, accommodation at a hotel near the office, and of course, plenty of 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. Founded in 2000, Jane Street employs more than 1,100 people with offices in New York, London, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong. We are always on the lookout for great new people to join our team.
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.
There is no prior knowledge of finance required for this programme—just intellectual curiosity and a genuine interest in what a career at Jane Street might look like. Students interested in attending should apply below.
