Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a focus on technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of the markets. We are a global liquidity provider and market maker, operating around the clock and around the globe, employing people in our offices in New York, London, Hong Kong and Amsterdam.
The markets change rapidly, and we need to change faster still. Every day, we come to work with new problems to solve, new systems to build, and new theories to test. Technology is at the core of how we approach that work and developers are intimately tied in to every area of the business.
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.
We are looking to hire an engineer with experience in both software and hardware design to work on FPGA-based applications, and on tools for creating such applications.
We're big believers in the ability of tools to make programming faster, more pleasant, and more reliable. We think the same is true for hardware design, and we're looking for people with real world experience in hardware design who are interested in using programming language technology to improve the process of designing, testing and validating hardware designs.
Day to day work will predominantly involve OCaml & Hardcaml, for both RTL design and testing/integration. Engineers will also work with some Verilog and C.
This role involves working on the ground-up design and implementation of new FPGA applications, as well as helping extend and refine the high-level synthesis and testing tools that we use internally.
You don't need experience with OCaml in particular, or any experience in the financial markets, but we do want people who can approach hardware design with a software engineering mindset. A good background with some typed functional language and experience with using FPGAs in the context of Ethernet networking are both pluses.
COVID-19 update - Jane Street is running virtual events, programmes, activities, and internships this year - we look forward to meeting you all virtually soon!
