Traders at the D. E. Shaw group are at the core of our discretionary investment strategies. Trader interns will take on complex challenges that are ever-changing and reach far beyond the finance industry, joining a diverse group of colleagues composed of published authors, entrepreneurs, opera singers, International Math and Physics Olympiad medalists, and many others. We’re looking to train motivated and unique individuals to contribute to our inclusive and collegial team. This is a ten-week program that will take place in New York.
Because our approach sits at the intersection of finance and technology, you will employ a number of technological platforms to analyze market data and make qualitative decisions based on this analysis. You’ll assist in general trading activities, monitoring markets and positions, and analyzing market events.
