    Former Employee - Algorithmic Trader Intern in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Algorithmic Trader Intern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Jump Trading as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did an internship over the summer as algorithmic trader in Chicago.

    Training and the program:
    They have a really nice and well-established program for algo-trader interns (although they are very flexible and open to suggestions): We had four weeks of classes on everything we needed to know. (Yes! We literally had classes and even homework for classes.) They taught us basic concepts in Finance and Trading, and provided a simulated environment for manual trading. We had classes on Python, C++, and R which I found useful. Then we were given adequate data and a two week opportunity for open-ended research. After that we had the chance to do rotations with two teams within Jump.

    Things I enjoyed about Jump:
    -The company structure is extremely flat.
    -Your suggestions will be heard and considered; they constantly ask for your feedback.
    -They care about training and education.
    -They provide really nice housing for the interns (for free). Our apartment had swimming pool on the roof.
    -They organized fun activities like boat-party, rooftop happy hour, picnic, and travel to a lake house.
    -And last but not least, there's free lunch every Friday and free snacks and fruits everyday.

    Overall, I'm really satisfied with my non-stop learning experience. If you like Stats and Machine Learning, if you love working in research style, if want to work in a casual atmosphere, and more importantly if you like to work with smart people, you should consider Jump Trading.

    Cons

    Although they are located in a nice building (with gym, free shuttles, ...) it's almost a food desert around there. So many employees prefer to order from Seamless and eat at their desk. In other words, there's usually no lunch break.
