Traders at the D. E. Shaw group are at the core of our discretionary investment strategies, and we’re looking to train motivated and unique individuals to contribute to our inclusive and collegial team this coming summer. Joining a diverse group of colleagues composed of published authors, entrepreneurs, opera singers, International Math and Physics Olympiad medalists, and many others, trader interns will take on complex challenges that are ever-changing and reach far beyond the world of finance. This ten-week program runs from June 13 to August 19, 2022, in New York; and June 27 to September 2, 2022, in London.
What you’ll do day-to-day:
Because our approach sits at the intersection of finance and technology, our traders employ a number of technological platforms to analyze market data and make qualitative decisions based on this analysis. Trader interns will assist in general trading activities, monitoring markets and positions, and analyzing market events.
Who we’re looking for:
· Ideal candidates will excel at problem-solving and have an interest in financial markets (absolutely no previous finance experience is necessary, however).
· Computer literacy is an advantage but not a requirement.
· Preference will be given to students approaching their final year of full-time study toward a bachelor’s or advanced degree, though all are encouraged to apply.
