INTERNSHIPS, apply by Weds, Sept 14th

FULL-TIME, apply by Weds, Sept 28th


We build predictive models from big data and develop algorithms to
automatically execute trades in dozens of financial exchanges around the

At Jump you will have the opportunity to contribute in a blend of three
roles – quant researcher / data scientist, trader, and software developer –
based on your incoming skills and background, interest and curiosity, and
the new skills and industry knowledge that you will learn at Jump.

Full-time quants will start by completing a training program focused on
enhancing your knowledge of trading, programming, and quant research. The
training consists of in-house courses and trading simulation developed and
delivered by experienced quant researchers, traders, and developers. We
have experts from around the firm who will teach you advanced skills in a
variety of areas such as Machine Learning, Trading / Market Mechanics,
Statistics, R, Python, C++, and our research process.

You will later be coached to successfully apply those skills to build
predictive models, leveraging one of the largest supercomputers in the
world, and devise automated trading strategies to test in the markets
against world-class competition.

Our 10-week internship program is structured in a similar way, including
training classes, rotations with two trading teams, and research projects
with mentorship from experienced quants/traders.


Who should apply


We are seeking the sharpest analytical minds from top undergraduate and
graduate programs. Ideal candidates have an uncommon drive to learn and
improve, an entrepreneurial spirit, and strong skills in programming and/or
quantitative analysis (statistics, data mining, mathematics, machine
learning, etc.).

No prior knowledge of finance or trading is necessary. We’ll give you the
training that you’ll need.

Although we strongly value training in Computer Science and Mathematics
(recent hires include people with multiple IMO medals, top 10 Putnam
finishes, ICPC world finals medals, etc.) we are excited to meet people
with exceptional achievements in any technical discipline. Recent hires
also include students from fields such as Electrical Engineering,
Statistics, Physics, Neuroscience, Materials Science, Operations Research,
and more.

If you are curious about the challenge of improving research with daily
feedback from competitive markets, we hope you’ll apply.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS are encouraged to apply. We accept students eligible
for CPT/OPT and we sponsor work visas for full-time positions.
