There are some financial firms where technology doesn’t take a back seat.
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 we’re competitive people, we’re not competitive with each other; you’ll 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.
