There are some financial firms where technology doesnt take a back



Headquartered in New York City, the D. E. Shaw group is a highly

successful investment and technology development firm with an

international reputation. Students with strong technical backgrounds are

often drawn to our approach, which combines insights from quantitative

fields, software development, and finance. We offer a stimulating work

environment and colleagues from the best science and engineering

programs in the world. Our team includes Putnam Fellows, International

Math Olympiad medalists, patent holders, and hundreds of people

passionate about CS, EE, physics, and math.


The work environment at the firm is incredibly stimulating and

enriching, but surprisingly casual for the financial industry. Our

culture doesn’t fit the typical corporate mold: though were competitive

people, were not competitive with each other; youll see more jeans

than suits in our offices; and we value the academic environment that

allows us to continually learn from our colleagues.

We look forward to hearing from you, and best of luck with your studies.
