This January, Jane Street is excited to host our annual INSIGHT programme in Hong Kong! We’re inviting students who identify as women, transgender and gender expansive in their second year of university to spend three days in our office learning more about what we do and how we do it through a set of trading and programming classes and activities. Attendees will receive an in-depth look into the ways we use math and computer science every day as well as insight into the different roles that exist within our firm.
Selected students will arrive in Hong Kong on the evening of January 16th and will depart on January 20th. Jane Street will cover all travel to and from Hong Kong, including meals, housing and a variety of social events.
INSIGHT has two different programme tracks students can apply for:
- Trading — students will learn about mathematical and financial topics such as probability, market structure and arbitrage through a combination of short lectures, group games and mock trading sessions.
- Software engineering — students will learn OCaml, the libraries and tools we use in our daily work and how to put them to use by building a computer game. Participants will also learn the fundamentals of electronic trading systems and write a programme that trades on a simulated stock exchange.
The deadline to apply for this event is Sunday, November 19th, 2023 at 11:59 pm HKT.
