Proprietary Trading Intern

Website D. E. Shaw

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.

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.
At the D. E. Shaw group, we believe the diversity of our employees is core to our strength and success. We are committed to supporting our people in work and in life, which is why we offer benefits such as a family planning and surrogacy program and a charitable gift match to all full-time employees.

Additionally, our staff-led affinity groups are pillars of our community, helping to celebrate diversity, promote leadership and development opportunities, and facilitate inclusive mentorship. Members and allies organize a wide range of educational and social programming, from expert talks to film festivals.
The members of the D. E. Shaw group do not discriminate in employment matters on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, caregiver status, or any other category protected by law. We are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and are eager to hear from individuals having a wide range of backgrounds and personal characteristics.
