About the Position

We’re looking to hire an experienced Alpha Capture professional to help expand and maintain relationships between Jane Street and our sell-side partners. You’ll be joining our Alpha Capture team, which is comprised of many highly collaborative individuals who all endeavor to build out best-in-class models for day-to-day partner interaction.

You’ll collaborate daily with traders and researchers across the firm to inform priors and bolster relationships between Jane Street and its partners. Your existing industry knowledge of the sell side will add immense value as you work to find new partnerships for Jane Street to form.

The problems we work on rarely have clean, definitive answers, and they often require insights from people across the firm with different areas of expertise. It’s easy to connect with colleagues no matter their department; we find that we make the most progress when team members collaborate and communicate fluidly. People who work here are true partners, working together toward shared goals.

Staying competitive as we’ve grown has required constant invention — of new trading strategies, technology, and processes. We’ve found this is easier when you hire humble, kind people. This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing function at our firm, and we’ll endeavor to put your quick thinking and relationship-building skills to good use.
