It was an excel challenge to demonstrate the ability to track transactions , not many instructions were provided but it seems that having a undergrad business school background would be helpful

    Interview

    Received an excel sheet and got asked for a first interview. Never heard back. The interview process was tedious. Lots of probability questions. The process is 3 interviews long. However, I heard if you get it, it's great.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Jane Street.

    Interview

    First round was a a short 30 - 45 minute phone call with some basic probability questions. None of them were particularly tricky and it seemed to be more of a "do you know the basics?" with them also asking for what assumptions I was making and why. The second round was two questions which I found much more challenging and was allowed one hour for. For both they were willing to work with you and wanted to hear your thoughts out loud. They let me run with a mistake until I noticed it and then would go back to point out where I went wrong.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jane Street in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and had to complete work before I got the phone interview. The questions were all critical thinking based. Some a bit challenging. I didn't get a lot of feedback from the interviewer but I guess I wasn't asking the right questions. They expected me to talk through my answers but I was too in my head to articulate anything.

    Interview

    Applied for Software Developer Intern, got email for phone screening about 5 days later. Was done through shared code editor. Interviewer was very nice and offered assistance if necessary. Questions were quite basic, but I was nervous as it was my first interview. Got rejection email about 3 days after the phone interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jane Street in April 2018.

    Interview

    First round they sent an excel spreadsheet to edit. It was a very very long list of trades and there were some errors you had to find. There were more than 10000 trades so clearly you had to come up with some formulas to use throughout the sheet.
    Second round phone interview. Several tricky questions, brain teaser types.

    Very fast. I applied and it took less than 24 hours for a recruiter to reach out. Sounded like would immediately get a phone interview but slapped with a pre-activity.
