The goal of our summer internship program is to expose talented individuals to the projects and environment associated with full-time work in quantitative analysis and software development at the D. E. Shaw group. Interns interact with various trading groups and gain valuable work experience while demonstrating their skills on a variety of real-world projects. Working closely with quants, developers, and other senior staff as mentors, interns can expect an environment conducive to learning. In addition, numerous social events give interns the opportunity to interact with colleagues and learn about the firm as a whole.
What you’ll do day-to-day: For quantitative analyst interns, projects might include applying sophisticated numerical techniques and writing software to develop and analyze statistical models for our computerized financial trading strategies, or researching financial literature to identify new trading ideas and creating simulations to test them.
Who we're looking for: Successful candidates have traditionally been the top students in their respective math, statistics, physics, engineering, computer science, and other technical and quantitative programs.
Degrees accepted: current undergraduate, master's, doctorate.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
