|Requirements for applicants:||
A new venture of the D. E. Shaw group (“DESCO”) seeks talented and highly motivated individuals to join its Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) program as part of our DESCOvery initiative. DESCOvery aims at building new, non-asset management businesses for the firm.
Who we’re looking for
This individual will focus on “KYC” efforts, including refining existing processes and pioneering innovations within the financial services industry.
Participants will join the program as full-time employees for approximately six months. During that time, they’ll be part of a distinct entity and will be responsible for proposing, researching, and preparing a plan to further new business ideas. Promising ideas will move to the execution stage and will be backed by the firm; the EIR will be expected to play a lead role in executing those ideas.
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.
