Estimathon – attempt 13 Fermi problems in 30 minutes, in a mind-bending mix of maths and trivia, followed by a networking session with traders from Jane Street.
Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm and a global liquidity provider. Our trading is based on mathematical modelling and strategies and we use innovative technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of markets to stay successful. With over 900 employees in our New York, London, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong offices, that’s a lot of ideas. Our next great idea could come from you; what will you come up with?
We trade based on our own proprietary models. Quantitative analysis and insights into related markets enable us to make competitive markets in even the most complicated products. On an average day, we trade over $13 billion in equities worldwide. During peak trading hours, trading desks are central to the excitement of our offices. Once the buzz has subsided, they’re a place for mentorship and open discussion.
