THE D. E. SHAW GROUP is a global investment and technology development firm with more than 1,000 employees, approximately $27 billion in investment capital as of October 1, 2012, and offices in North America, Europe, and Asia. Since our founding in 1988, our firm has earned an international reputation for successful investing based on innovation, careful risk management, and the quality and depth of our staff. We have a significant presence in the world's capital markets, investing in a wide range of companies and financial instruments in both developed and developing economies.
Our culture demands and rewards analytical rigor and adherence to the highest possible ethical and legal standards, and we've cultivated a collegial work environment that promotes collaboration across disciplines, geographies, and investment strategies. Our firm has been built in part by attempting to do what other companies might consider impossible, or never imagine at all. A single transformative idea that ultimately works—for a new business, a new trading model, or an improved back office process—is worth a dozen ideas that lead nowhere. We've learned that when an extraordinary team sets extraordinarily ambitious goals, astonishing breakthroughs can be expected.
