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. Keen insight and innovation are essential for creating solutions for trading profitably in markets around the globe. Specific responsibilities range from examining trading data to increase profitability, decrease risk, and reduce transaction costs, to conceiving new trading ideas and devising the simulations needed to test them. Successful quant candidates have traditionally been exceptionally talented students at the top of their respective math, physics, engineering, computer science, and other technical and quantitative programs. While Ph.D.’s in these fields are common, many of our quants join us with undergraduate or master’s degrees. A considerable number have competed successfully in the United States and International Math Olympiads, as well as the Putnam Competition. Members of our highly versatile team possess the wide range of quantitative and programming abilities necessary to solve challenging problems that are critical to the firm’s continued success.
