Campus | Software Engineer (Intern)

Job Description

Software Engineering Internship (Singapore)

About the Role: 

Our software engineering internship is an intensive 10-week experience within our core development team that designs, codes, tests, and maintains our distributed trading system.

Interns will spend 4 weeks in our Chicago headquarters and then return to the Singapore office for the remainder of the internship (subject to change due to travel restrictions related to public health). 

You will learn the fundamentals of a large-scale, high-performance infrastructure; sharpen your C++ programming skills; and see what it’s like to work as a full-time software engineer at Jump. Throughout your internship you will take on projects targeted for production, which go through our full-cycle process for development, testing, and release using Agile methodologies. May include other duties as assigned or needed. 

You will be working side by side with our experienced software engineers and you’ll receive ongoing feedback and coaching from a dedicated mentor throughout the summer. 

Our internship program is the primary way we identify top young software engineers for our core development team, and it’s a proven path for earning full-time opportunities at Jump. 

 

Qualifications/Requirements: 

- Experience with C++ programming on Linux

* No finance or economics study or work experience required
