About the Position

We’re looking for a professionally established Engineer to join our Amsterdam office to help us design, maintain, and expand our European offices, trading floors, and data centre facilities. 

From an engineering perspective, our goal is to deliver comfortable, reliable, and maintainable facilities. Every project must consider the features and systems that are essential for Jane Street to function, such as connectivity and resilience.

Although you will be working in an IT-centric environment, we are less focused on the specific discipline you’ve worked in, and more interested in a commitment to excellence, sound design experience, and well-reasoned engineering decisions.

Your work will be collaborative in nature, with specific responsibilities spanning all aspects of our physical infrastructure. Current members of the team have diverse backgrounds, ranging from construction and project management to mechanical and electrical engineering.

The people on our team are excited when projects like data-centre expansions or office-fit outs come up. We have a special sense of pride over these projects because we get to work in the spaces we build and maintain. Every day is an exercise in helping our colleagues do their best work, and your ideas will make the team stronger.
