Full Time / New York & London
Jane Street is a proprietary quantitative trading firm, focusing primarily on trading equities and equity derivatives. We use innovative technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of markets to stay successful in our highly competitive field. We operate around the clock and around the globe, employing over 500 people in offices in New York, London and Hong Kong.
The markets in which we trade change rapidly, but our intellectual approach changes faster still. Every day, we have new problems to solve and new theories to test. Our entrepreneurial culture is driven by our talented team of traders and programmers. At Jane Street, we don't come to work wanting to leave. We come to work excited to test new theories, have thought-provoking discussions, and maybe sneak in a game of ping-pong or two. Keeping our culture casual and our employees happy is of paramount importance to us.
As Jane Street grows, the quality of the development tools we use matters more and more. We increasingly work on the OCaml compiler itself: adding useful language features, fine-tuning the type system and improving the performance of the generated code. Alongside this, we also work on the surrounding toolchain, developing new tools for profiling, debugging, documentation and build automation.
We're looking to hire a developer with experience working on compilers to join us. That experience might be from working on a production compiler in industry or from working on research compilers in an academic setting. No previous experience with OCaml or functional programming languages is required.
We’re looking for candidates for both our London and New York offices. Benefits and compensation are highly competitive.
