DeShaw & Co Recruits 1+ Year Exp - Testing - Walkin on 3 & 4th March

Company Profile:
The D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm. Since its organization in 1988, the firm has earned an international reputation for financial innovation, technological leadership, and an extraordinarily distinguished staff. The D. E. Shaw group encompasses a number of closely related entities with approximately 1,000 employees, $25 billion in aggregate investment capital, and offices in New York, London, Silicon Valley, Houston, Kansas City, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Bermuda, and Hyderabad and Gurgaon, India.

The firm has a significant presence in many of the world's capital markets, investing in a wide range of companies and financial instruments within both the major industrialized nations and a number of emerging markets. Its activities range from the deployment of investment strategies based on either mathematical models or human expertise to the acquisition of existing companies and the financing or development of new ones.

What we Do: The central focus of the D. E. Shaw group is the pursuit of potentially attractive investment opportunities, and in some cases, the active creation of new ones. Such opportunities form the basis for a number of funds and other investment vehicles, and for the firm's management of assets on behalf of institutional clients. The firm's investment activities may be divided into two broad categories—quantitative strategies based on mathematical and computational models and qualitative strategies based on the analysis of human experts. In addition, the firm conducts basic research aimed at achieving scientifically and economically significant advances over a relatively long time horizon.

The firm deployed its first quantitative strategy soon after its founding in 1988, and is now widely recognized as one of the pioneers of the field of computational finance. Quantitative techniques remain a central focus of the firm's activities, and are used to identify underpriced and overpriced securities, to manage various forms of portfolio risk, and to reduce the cost of transacting in various financial instruments. While a great deal of human effort is expended conducting scientific research in each of these areas, the firm's quantitative strategies are largely based on mathematical models embodied in computer software rather than on human judgments regarding the fundamental soundness of the underlying companies or other assets.
