About the Position
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.
- Top-notch programming skills.
- Deep experience with—and love for—technology. There’s no specific checklist; we use code 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 engineers and teach them what they need to know.

Please note that while we're working remotely right now, we're hoping to host our 2021 internships back in the London office if public health conditions allow.
