The Development internship is a 10 week summer program that exposes you to the world of technology and trading. At the end of the internship, you will have a fundamental understanding of trading technology and the financial markets.
As an intern, you will be working in teams alongside traders, expert developers, and other technologists solving complex and interesting problems. You will be writing software that touches upon just about every area of Computer Science, including data storage, information retrieval, algorithm optimization, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, user interface design, etc.
At Spot, our interns make a real difference – not by running errands or getting coffee but by researching cutting edge technologies and building high-performance front-end trading tools that go into production. You will get to work with the newest and best technologies, and get exposure to our Agile development approach.
It is extremely fast-paced, and we only seek people who thrive in high-pressure situations with new and different challenges each day. Throughout the internship, Spot hosts a variety of social and educational activities to foster collaboration while introducing you to Chicago and our industry.
We are looking for juniors pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering who show strong problem solving skills and have a solid understanding of computer science principles. You should have experience programming in C#, C++ or Java. A passion for creating innovative software solutions and working in teams is a distinct advantage.
