Software Engineer


This is a permanent opportunity, starting with a 12 week bootcamp.

It's likely you will have already developed a love for programming, and you'll be convinced that a career in software development is where you want to go.

You may have taught yourself to code, been on a course or two, or have a degree in Computer Science. You can stitch some code together but probably have no commercial experience.

Being a software engineer at Made Tech is a great opportunity to surround yourself with people who care about the software they develop. Made Tech's 12 week Academy program gives you the skills you need to join one of their project delivery teams.

What are we looking for?

Your first 12 weeks is all about learning. Lead by one of our full-time engineers, you'll be sharpening your programming skills and learning all about shipping high quality code in a commercial environment.

The program involves:

  • Learning: a combination of tutorials, solo exercises, pair programming exercises, and group programming exercises to brush up on modern software skills from agile practicesto writing automated tests.
  • Project Delivery: working as a team to deliver a large project. You'll go through the entire lifecycle: from capturing requirements, working with stakeholders, showcasing your work, and regularly shipping it!
  • Live Project: being seconded on to live project teams for 4 weeks to experience life in front of real customers

What happens after 12 weeks?

Once you've completed your 12 week Academy program, you'll join a project team on a live customer delivery. However, this is far from where the learning finishes. Everyone in the team is heavily involved in ongoing learning, including:

  • Made Learning Afternoon: every Friday afternoon we down tools on our customer projects and focus on improving our core skills
  • Pair Programming: all of our teams practice pair programming. You'll be spending a chunk of your regular working day hands-on coding with other software engineers
  • Retrospectives: all teams run retrospectives every couple of weeks to look at what went well and where improvements could be made. We also run a company wide retrospective every other Friday
  • Growth Program: you'll have a meeting with a Director every 2 - 4 weeks to evaluate your individual growth goals and objectives enabling you to progress your career as fast as you choose
  • Conferences and Meetups: the team are encouraged to attend conferences and meetups
  • Discretionary Spend: everyone on the team has their own company card, with discretionary spend on books, conference tickets etc.

What sort of work will I be doing?

You'll be working on engagements with a variety of customers, on assignments typically between 3 and 9 months in duration. You might spend a couple of days a week on-site with customers.

You'll be solving hard software problems. You'll be delivering large, business critical software platforms, and implementing change programs that improve the delivery of software in our customer organisations.

Jane Street works differently. We are a quantitative trading firm active on more than 200 trading venues across 45 countries. As a liquidity provider and market maker, we help form the backbone of global markets. Our approach is rooted in technology and rigorous quantitative analysis, but our success is driven by our people.

Our bright, beautiful offices in the heart of New York, London, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam are open and buzzing with conversation. We come from many backgrounds and encourage travel between offices to share perspectives. Some of our best ideas come from bumping into a colleague at the office coffee bar.

Markets move fast. 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. They tend to help each other, and prioritize teamwork over titles.

We invest heavily in teaching and training. There’s a library and a classroom in every office, because deepening your understanding of something is considered real work. Guest lectures, classes, and conferences round out the intellectual exchanges that happen every day.

People grow into long careers at Jane Street because there are always new and interesting problems to solve, systems to build, and theories to test. More than twenty years after our founding, it still feels like we’re just getting started.

Diversity information:
Work at Jane Street is exciting and challenging. We trade in incredibly competitive, fast-paced environments, and feedback on successes and failures is quick and tangible. This allows for constant evaluation and improvement of our strategies and performance.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
