TRADING AND RESEARCH
The roles of trading and research blend together at Jane Street. In either role, you’ll work to develop profitable trading strategies, signals, and execution methods.
Most of our trading involves strategies that are developed jointly by a mix of traders and researchers. Sometimes trading requires fast, high-stakes decision making, and that is done mainly by traders.
Sometimes trading requires models that take months to develop and optimize, and that is done mainly by researchers. But most of our business sits between these two extremes, and people tend to settle into a point on the spectrum that they’re best at and enjoy the most.
Technology is central to everything we do. Most Jane Streeters write code as part of their regular work, and we build almost all our software in-house with a focus on productivity, real-time visibility, and reliability. Twenty years of using and applying the most advanced tools available has earned us a reputation for excellence in tech; our technical infrastructure and software engineers drive Jane Street’s growth and generate our competitive edge.
INSTITUTIONAL SALES & TRADING
Our sales traders and product specialists partner with a wide variety of institutional clients to provide trading solutions and access to Jane Street’s differentiated liquidity. By combining trading expertise, market knowledge, and a deep understanding of the liquidity needs of asset managers, pensions, insurance companies, and others, these professionals help institutions achieve their trading goals.
Our infrastructure teams form the backbone of Jane Street, keeping the day-to-day operations of the firm running seamlessly. They handle our legal and compliance matters, see to our taxes and finances, manage our offices and human resources, and direct our creative projects.
