The D. E. Shaw group offers opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds who display evidence of outstanding ability and have a track record of exceptional accomplishment. As a globally prominent alternative investment manager, our firm offers world-class technology infrastructure and research capabilities, but we are still small and nimble enough to remain deeply entrepreneurial, always looking for new hires who bring fresh perspectives.

Our firm prizes intellectual curiosity and integrity, creative idea generation, and the relentless pursuit of results. We recognize that different things help people thrive: some are more productive working in t-shirts or listening to music, while others need time away from the office to recharge after a challenging project. We offer great benefits and perks, from game rooms, plentiful snacks, and a gym to back-up childcare and creative social events. Our primary focus is to sustain a stimulating, supportive, and fun work environment where our employees can do their best work.

Because we prioritize continual learning, we offer mentoring programs and onsite courses, as well as online resources to aid in professional development. We bring in external speakers from academia and industry on a range of topics, from highly technical to broadly educational. We aim to give all of our staff the opportunity to enjoy challenging work, friendly colleagues, and benefits that focus on personal growth and wellness.
