We offer competitive internships in our Trading, Software Development, and Research teams. The program provides all interns with exposure to the trading industry, along with hands-on and classroom learning opportunities. Since many interns are new to Chicago, we organize a variety of social events throughout the summer to show all that the city has to offer.
"Spot is a great team to be a part of; there’s lots of opportunity for people (especially interns!) to bring something unique to the table, while at the same time incorporating an all-for-one, team-oriented approach to trading."

"It is amazing to have the opportunity as an intern to receive immediate feedback on the application’s features from your development team, and exciting to see the finished products of your work directly used by the company."

Why Intern at Spot?
By integrating our interns directly with their teams, they gain valuable work experience. Their day-to-day work and special projects provide direct impact on the business. Mentors are partnered with interns to answer questions, provide insight, and give feedback. Regardless of the group, internships are challenging and dynamic, and constantly provide new learning opportunities.
What are some of the Perks of Interning at Spot?
Spot provides our interns with housing near the office, and full meals daily. To build collaboration and lasting friendships, Spot arranges activities throughout the summer for interns and their mentors. They are able to meet and mingle with other Spot employees and leaders in a more relaxed setting at various social events.
Chicago Cubs Game
The annual rooftop Cubs game is always a favorite! Regardless of which team you're cheering for, a night of baseball, food, drinks and friends is fun for everyone.
Interns have enjoyed a day at Lollapalooza, street festivals, bags tournaments, as well as some of Chicago's best outdoor and rooftop patios.
Engaging in friendly competition, interns and full-time employees enjoy volleyball games at the lakefront, followed by food and drinks at a nearby patio.
