Benefits at The D. E. Shaw Group

We have robust benefits, such as excellent healthcare, including a family building plan that offers employees assistance with fertility, adoption, and surrogacy services, as well as primary and secondary caregiver paid leave. Additionally, the firm offers 401(k), flex spending, and, in some of our offices, an onsite gym. While we’re working from home, we offer virtual wellness classes, such as meditation, cardio, and yoga. We also have other perks, like memberships to various museums in NYC (Museum of Natural History, MoMA, Metropolitan Museum of Art) and talks from leading scientists and public figures, including Sir Angus Deaton (recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences and International Affairs), Sherrilyn Ifill (president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund), César A. Hidalgo (leader of the Collective Learning group at MIT Media Lab), and Garry Kasparov (former world chess champion).
