Tech Product Manager Internship, June - September

About the Program

Our goal is to give you a real sense of what it’s like to work at Jane Street full time. Over the course of your internship, you will explore ways to approach and solve exciting problems within your field of interest through fun and challenging classes, interactive sessions, and group discussions—and then you will have the chance to put those lessons to practical use.

As an intern, you are paired with full-time employees who act as mentors, collaborating with you on real-world projects we actually need done. When you are not working on your project, you will have plenty of time to use our office amenities, physical and virtual educational resources, attend guest speakers and social events, and engage with the parts of our work that excite you the most.

If you’ve never thought about a career in finance, you’re in good company. Many of us were in the same position before working here. If you have a curious mind, a collaborative spirit, and a passion for solving interesting problems, we have a feeling you’ll fit right in.

About the Position

As a Technical Product Manager intern, you’ll work side-by-side with our full-time PMs and software engineers as we build and optimize our trading technology. You’ll learn how our team thinks about, designs, deploys, and supports all of the infrastructure that underpins our trading activities. We will walk you through how problems are identified and prioritized, and solved. You will also support our software engineering initiatives.

We operate in a flexible environment that encourages people to think outside the box and we’re big believers in solving problems for our users. You’ll collaborate with teams across Jane Street to define and deliver projects to everyone from developers to operations, support, and trading. The scope of our trading systems is large and you'll gain insight into a broad cross-section of the global market as you work to improve them.

About You

We don’t expect you to have a background in finance or any other specific field—we’re looking for smart people who enjoy solving interesting problems. We’re more interested in how you think and learn than what you currently know. You should be:

  • Interested in developing a broad range of skills, from project management, to working with data, to understanding and writing code
  • Extremely organized and skilled in time management
  • Proactive, collaborative, and courteous with strong communication and people skills
  • Eager to ask questions, admit mistakes, and learn new things
  • Familiar with basic coding fundamentals
  • Intending to start full-time employment in 2024
  • Majoring or minoring in computer science (preferred)
  • Fluent in English
