Jane Street will be hosting a virtual ESTIMATHON!
Tuesday 5th October 2021 - 17:30-19:00 BST
Hosted via Zoom
Register as an individual* here by Thursday September 30th 23:59 BST.
The Estimathon! is a mind bending mixture of math and trivia. In teams, you'll attempt 13 Fermi problems in 30 minutes, ranging from totally trivial to positively Putnamesque. Be prepared to come up with the best set of confidence intervals! Sample problems include:
How many stop signs are in New York City?
How many babies were born in 1900?
How many Social Security Numbers are prime?
We will also have time at the end of the Estimathon for a live Q&A session with Jane Street Traders, Software Engineers and Recruiters.
Typically when we come to campus, we bring swag. Since we can't meet in-person, we will provide guests access to order one of our 2020 t-shirts! More details will follow on this after the event :)
*Estimathon is a team-based competition. All participants will register as individuals and be placed on a team. But due to the logistics associated with running the event virtually, you cannot sign-up as a team.
