Overview
The D. E. Shaw group is a global finance and technology development firm. Founded in 1988 over a small bookstore in downtown New York City, we began with six employees and $28 million in capital and quickly became a pioneer in computational ļ¬nance. Since then, we've built a reputation for successful investing based on persistent innovation, analytical rigor, careful risk management, and uniquely talented employees.
Within the D. E. Shaw group, we run on collaboration, not competition. Teams work together to share trade ideas, assess risks, build tools, and explore new opportunities. Our staff includes world-class mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, and system architects drawing on specialized trading, operational, and compliance expertise developed over thirty years.
