It wouldn't be clear to every firm that a man
with an M.F. A. in poetry was the right choice to
head an automated block trading unit. Or that a
designer of solar-powered race cars was the
right woman to help launch a new venture in
computational chemistry. But after we talked to
them, it was clear to us.
The D. E. Shaw group is an investment and
technology development firm. Since 1988 we've
grown into a number of closely related entities
with more than US $3 billion in aggregate capi-
tal by hiring smart people from a wide range of
backgrounds and letting them implement-and
manage-what they invent. A robotics guru.
A nationally ranked blackjack player. A demo-
litions expert. An operatic mezzo-soprano.
And a lot of people who are just exceptionally
strong in CS, EE, math, and finance.
The firm currently has openings in quantitative
analysis, software development, trading, busi-
ness development, accounting, finance, and
investor relations. We're looking for creative
but pragmatic people, articulate, curious, and
driven. Our working environment is intense
but surprisingly casual. We provide unusual
opportunities for growth. And we compensate
extraordinary people extraordinarily well.
The D. E. Shaw group will host an information
session on Moriday, October 7, 2002 at 6 PM in
Room P1004 of the Business School. On-campus
interviews will take place October 8. To apply
for an interview, send a resume and a cover
letter stating your GPA and standardized test
scores to firstname.lastname@example.org.
