Rotational Associates Program

November 6, 2018


The D. E. Shaw Group


Finance and Investments




New York, NY



The D. E. Shaw group is seeking talented, intellectually curious individuals to join our Rotational Associates Program. As a rotational associate, you’ll collaborate on challenging, impactful projects while rotating through three to four departments over the course of a year.

What you will do day-to-day:

The program is designed to provide you with broad exposure to the firm’s activities: you might help evaluate investment opportunities on a trading desk, analyze firm profitability as part of the Office of the Chief Operating Officer, or research new business areas as part of the Corporate Development team. Past associates have gone on to manage investment portfolios and make other significant contributions at the firm.


Who we’re looking for:

  • We welcome applications from individuals from all professions and academic fields and neither expect nor require previous finance knowledge or experience; past rotational associates majored in economics, engineering, natural sciences, and philosophy before joining the firm. 
  • We’re looking for accomplished and creative critical thinkers with an interest in finance and a desire to learn and take on a new challenge. 
  • Rotational associates are also highly skilled at applying quantitative problem-solving techniques. 
  • In keeping with our firm’s culture, we are more interested in talent, curiosity, and motivation than we are in any particular skill or experience.
