PDT Partners – a quantitative investment manager - is seeking talented engineering students for Software Engineering focused internships. Our custom-designed program enables students to contribute to our technology-critical, algorithmic trading business while honing their technical skills.
Students will work closely with highly accessible and supportive senior developers for every project. Mentors are deeply technical hands-on developers who provide guidance during the project, and they are available for design sessions, discussions, and learning throughout the program.
The program's social events - PDT summer picnic, movie nights, ice cream social, bowling night, Yankees/Mets games, board game nights, foo-centric activities, and access to variety of affinity groups all provide excellent opportunities to get to know our team. Even in the instance of a remote internship, we make sure to plan regular events to build a strong sense of camaraderie.
PDT is a fun and collaborative community of passionate engineers, science fiction fans, musicians, martial artists, extreme-sports enthusiasts, volunteers, and foodies who enjoy a non-hierarchical, professional environment. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Philanthropy are part of the fabric of our firm. Part of why we’re able to maintain our unique culture is because we’re committed to hiring kind people, maintaining a community that fosters a sense of belonging, and using our good fortune to help others outside of PDT.
