Student recruiting happens in two waves each year. Full-Time (entry-level) positions open in the Summer, the recruitment process continues through the Fall, and new hires join Akuna the following year. Summer Internships open in the Winter, the recruitment process continues through the Spring, and new interns start at Akuna that subsequent Summer.

Sharing what it’s like to work here is one of our favorite things. We’re always excited to gear up for each campus recruiting season and meet the next generation of Akuna Traders, Developers and Quantitative Developers!
