The Details

About Us

The D. E. Shaw group is trusted by investors across the world to manage their assets by seeking the optimal balance of risk and reward. While we’re known as a pioneer in quantitative investing, we also have considerable expertise in areas that involve fundamental analysis or portfolio manager discretion. We use a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools to uncover independent, hard-to-find sources of return across global public and private markets.

Founded in 1988 over a small bookstore in downtown New York City, the D. E. Shaw group began with six employees and $28 million in capital and quickly became a pioneer in computational finance. In the early days of exposed pipes and extension cords, tripping on a cable could take out our whole trading system. Today, the firm has more than 1,700 people around the globe and an institutional-grade (and trip-proof) infrastructure, but we still value creativity, entrepreneurship, and the spirit of discovery.

The D. E. Shaw group seeks motivated individuals with an impressive record of academic and/or professional achievement to join its internship program.

Specific projects will be matched to a candidate’s interests and experience; sample projects include working alongside our engineering team to build remote access provisioning tools, evaluating new instant messaging solutions for the firm, and collaborating with other Systems interns to design and build a new ops scheduling platform.

Who we’re looking for

  • Ideal candidates will have a dedicated interest in both building technology and helping others use it effectively. They’ll successfully combine superb research and analytical skills to resolve unfamiliar problems and advance challenging work.
  • Applicants should have a basic knowledge of the Microsoft Windows enterprise environment and standard applications, and a demonstrated interest in improving processes and technology. Familiarity with general systems administration, a Linux environment, and experience with Python, PowerShell, and/or other scripting languages is a plus.
  • Excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills are critical, as the role involves working with global colleagues across a diverse set of backgrounds, experiences, and projects.
  • In keeping with our firm’s culture and the ever-changing nature of our work, we’re more interested in talent, curiosity, and motivation as demonstrated by an impressive history of achievement than we are in any particular skill or experience.

At the D. E. Shaw group, we believe the diversity of our employees is core to our strength and success. We are committed to supporting our people in work and in life, which is why we offer benefits such as a family planning and surrogacy program and a charitable gift match to all full-time employees.

Additionally, our staff-led affinity groups are pillars of our community, helping to celebrate diversity, promote leadership and development opportunities, and facilitate inclusive mentorship. Members and allies organize a wide range of educational and social programming, from expert talks to film festivals.

The members of the D. E. Shaw group do not discriminate in employment matters on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, caregiver status, or any other category protected by law.
