The Michigan Daily - Thursday, October 9, 2003 -11A
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 compu-
tational 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 approxi-
mately US $5 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. 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 quan-
titative analysis, software development,
information technology, computer
architecture, business development,
computational chemistry, finance, and
accounting. We're looking for creative
but pragmatic people: articulate, curi-
ous, and driven. Our working environ-
ment is intense but surprisingly casual.
We provide unusual opportunities for
growth. And we compensate extraordi-
nary people extraordinarily well.
The D. E. Shaw group will host an
information session on Thursday,
November 6 at 7:00 PM mn Room D1210
at Michigan Business School. On-
campus interviews will take place
November 7. To apply for an interview,
