Information about some of our perennially open positions and groups.
Quantitative Traders work in teams to develop and execute strategies using a combination of data analysis and a deep understanding of how markets operate. Traders push into new business areas, investigate new products, optimize the execution of trades, and manage risk. Jane Street’s traders also adapt strategies to unexpected market conditions. For these roles, previous experience is not required. We’re more interested in how you think and learn than what you already know.
The technology group is actively hiring in many different areas. For all of these, no previous experience or coursework in finance, business, or economics is required. We’re more interested in how you think and learn than what you already know.
Researchers at Jane Street are responsible for building models, strategies, and systems that price and trade a variety of financial instruments. As a mix of the trading and software engineering roles, this work involves many things: analyzing large datasets, building and testing models, creating new trading strategies, and writing the code that implements them.
Jane Street offers our unique liquidity and trade execution services to the largest institutional investors and asset managers in the world. Roles in Institutional Services are generally client-facing to some degree.
Our infrastructure teams– Business Development, Operations, Finance, Tax, HR, Recruiting, Legal & Compliance, and Office Administration – are key to the firm’s success. Like nearly everyone else at Jane Street, they sit together on one trading floor, collaborating closely with each other to constantly improve the firm’s critical functions.

If it’s responsibility that you’re looking for, with the chance to make real changes within some of the largest organisations in the UK, then a graduate role at Newton could be the job for you. Do you:
- Want to change the world in a year (or less)?
- Want to use data to inspire people to do their most meaningful work?
- Want a pivotal role, working on things that really matter?
- Want to work for a company that guarantees its fees against measurable results? (Don’t worry – you’ll still be paid)
If so, be part of our team.
Change doesn’t magically appear from behind a laptop; it grows from working together as a single, cohesive team. We will only get the results you need by forming the relationships (friendships, even) that matter – at every level of your organisation. From the boardroom, where we care as passionately about solving the challenge as you do; to the shop floor, where change will either succeed or fail, and where the most valuable insights are often discovered.
Either by habit, or opinion, or limited access to vital or timely information, organisations are often led in the wrong direction. This is why we never start off assuming we know the answer. Hard evidence, gathered first-hand, is – for us – the only solid foundation for relevant, effective, and lasting change. We start right at the coalface, uncovering the insight and the truths that you need to make your most important decisions.
Once you have greater visibility and insight into what’s happening, we create a plan together which clearly and definitively pinpoints the changes that will deliver you the biggest impact. And this is where our initial approach pays off. Because we’ve designed the plan as one team, from the outset, and because we’ve directly engaged those most affected along the way, your whole organisation will be able to understand – and get behind – what needs to happen.

Arrival is accelerating autonomous and electric vehicle technology, by fusing AI with new forms of automotive engineering. Arrival recently placed 1st in LinkedIn’s Hottest UK Startups of 2020, is one of the world’s newest Unicorn’s and has won numerous design awards for its new standard of zero-emission vehicles and technology products.
Arrival is reinventing the automotive industry with its entirely new approach to the design and assembly of electric vehicles. The company’s new method uses low CapEx, rapidly scalable Microfactories that can be placed anywhere in the world to serve the regions they are located in. These Microfactories, combined with proprietary in-house developed components, materials and software, enable the production of best in class vehicles that are competitively priced to fossil fuel variants. This transformative approach reduces the costs of production and emissions of shipping, and does not require massive upfront investment, creating strong unit economics for the whole of Arrival’s product portfolio, including its electric van and bus announced earlier this year.
