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.

Members and allies organize a wide range of educational and social programming, from expert talks to film festivals.
