We have some good news in terms of sponsorship. Accenture is now a GOLD level sponsor and we have a new sponsor Jane street, a quantitative trading firm. Read more about them below.
Jane Street is a proprietary trading firm that operates around the clock and around the globe. We bring a deep understanding of markets, a scientific approach, and innovative technology to trade in the world's highly competitive financial markets, focusing primarily on equities and equity derivatives.
Founded in 2000, Jane Street employs over 320 people in offices in New York, London and Hong Kong. Our entrepreneurial culture is driven by our talented team of traders and programmers.
The environment at Jane Street is open, informal, intellectual and fun. You can wear a t-shirt and jeans to the office every day, the kitchen is stocked, and discussions are always lively. Teaching and learning are central activities through classes, mentoring and discussion.
We also have extensive benefits, including:
• Free lunch delivered daily from a selection of restaurants
• Catered breakfasts and fresh brewed coffee
• An on-site, private gym with towel service
• Kitchens fully stocked with a variety of snack choices
Why we're interested in ANU students:
Trading is an intensely technological business, so writing good software is a critical part of Jane Street's operation. We are one of the world's biggest industrial users of functional programming, and we use it in every area of the firm: trading, research, risk management, system administration, accounting, and beyond. The work is challenging, and you will see the practical impact of your efforts in quick and dramatic terms. We focus on education, and you learn about software and trading via in-house classes, guest lectures, and on the job.
As one of the top universities in Australia where functional programming is taught, we are very interested in hiring ANU students to be part of our growing team! We mainly hire for three positions and offer both internship and full time opportunities depending on when you graduate: Quantitative Trading, Software Development and Quantitative Research.
