The D.E. Shaw Group

Quantitative Analyst


Quants at the D. E. Shaw group apply mathematical techniques and write software to develop, analyze, and implement statistical models for our computerized financial trading strategies. They utilize their creativity and innovation to create novel approaches to trade profitably in markets around the globe. Specific responsibilities range from leveraging financial data in an effort to increase profitability, decrease risk, and reduce transaction costs to conceiving new trading ideas, formulating them into systematic strategies, and critically evaluating their performance. Successful quant candidates have traditionally been exceptionally talented students at the top of their respective statistics, math, physics, engineering, and computer science programs; a considerable number have also competed successfully in the United States and International Math Olympiads as well as the Putnam Competition.


Software Developer


Technology is integral to virtually everything the D. E. Shaw group does, which is why we seek exceptional software developers with a range of quantitative and programming abilities.  Members of our technical staff collaborate on challenging problems that directly impact the firm’s continued success, utilizing their strong analytical, mathematical, and software design skills as well as some of the most advanced computing resources in the world.  Specific responsibilities may include formulating statistical models for our computerized trading strategies, developing distributed systems to analyze and react to incoming data in real-time, and creating tools for advanced mathematical modeling.  Successful developer candidates have traditionally been the top students in their programs and have extensive software development experience.  We welcome outstanding candidates at all experience levels.


IT/Enterprise: Security Engineer


The D. E. Shaw group seeks a Security Engineer to join its IT/Enterprise group. This individual will work on the development and execution of the firm's information security program to improve the security posture of a fast-paced, large-scale IT environment. The engineer will collaborate with development and infrastructure teams on the security design of new solutions, perform security reviews of new and existing systems, and design, build, and operate innovative tools to improve internal security operations. The engineer will also act as first response and work with system owners to remediate security-related incidents. Projects will span a wide range, including application security reviews, design of source code protection mechanisms, establishment of network demarcation points, and investigation of security incidents.

A strong candidate will possess a solid grasp of computer security principles and a practical understanding of how security fails in the real world. The candidate will also have prior exposure to fundamental mechanisms behind computer attacks and corresponding mitigation techniques, as well as knowledge of current and emerging attack trends. Relevant hands-on experience with penetration testing and application security, or incident response and security infrastructure, is desired. Communication skills are also essential, as the role entails significant interaction with different departments in the organization.

Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory

JHU/APL is a University Affiliated Research Center, an independent division of the Johns Hopkins University that was formed back in World War 2 to originally help the Navy’s bombs and rockets be more effective in hitting intended targets. Specifically, APL developed what is called a proximity fuse which sensed when a bomb was near a large metal mass such as a ship and to detonate the bomb accordingly. Our mission in the Air & Missile Defense Sector at JHU/APL is to advance the ability of our nation & its military services to defend themselves & others against cruise & ballistic missiles & threat aircraft. We will achieve this through innovative, effective, & affordable system solutions to the most difficult challenges posed by evolving air & missile threats. What Does It Take to Make It Happen?
