What is the WiTT Programme?

Women in Trading and Technology (WiTT) is a three-day programme designed for women in their penultimate year of university as of autumn 2020. Participants will have an exclusive opportunity to explore careers within our firm and attend one of two educational programmes: quantitative trading and software engineering.

Both programmes feature interactive classes and activities during the day, and evening social events to speak with Jane Street employees and other women attending the event in a more casual setting.

The quantitative trading programme

The quantitative trading programme focuses on mathematical and financial topics—such as probability, market structure, and arbitrage—through a combination of short classroom lectures, group games, and mock trading sessions. There is a curriculum of core subjects with flexibility to explore alternative areas of interest, and plenty of opportunities for close interaction with our traders.

The software engineering programme

The software engineering programme focuses on the fundamentals of building electronic trading systems, OCaml, and the library and tools we use in our everyday work at Jane Street. Participants will put these tools to use by writing the back end and UI for a computer game, along with a program that trades on a simulated stock exchange. These activities involve a combination of classroom lectures, group games and exercises, and one-on-one mentorship.

Selected students will arrive in London on the evening of Sunday, 20 September and will depart the evening of Wednesday, 23 September. 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.
