D. E. Shaw Group Information Session

October 30, 2018 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (already occurred)
Fayerweather Hall, Pruyne Lecture Hall

Join us for an information session featuring the D. E. Shaw Group, a global investment and technology development firm founded in 1988, with its headquarters in New York City and offices around the world. As one of the world’s largest hedge fund managers, the firm has earned an international reputation for successful investing based on innovation, careful risk management and the quality and depth of its research and staff.

The firm’s ideal hires are intellectual but also humble, rigorous in their work but flexible in their approach, interesting, friendly and most of all, curious about the world around us. With a culture that combines some of the best aspects of academia, finance, and technology, D. E. Shaw prides itself on a work environment that promotes collaboration, integrity and adherence to the highest possible ethical standards.

Teams work in close collaboration—not in competitive silos—to share trade ideas, manage risks, streamline processes and explore new opportunities. The firm is committed to the well-being and happiness of its employees, recognizing that different people thrive in different types of environments: some are most productive working in t-shirts or listening to music, while others need time away from the office to recharge after a challenging project.
