THE D. E. SHAW GROUP is a global investment and technology development firm with more
than $40 billion in investment capital as of October 1, 2016, and offices in North America,

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

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 processes worth a dozen ideas that lead nowhere.
We've learned that when an extraordinary team sets extraordinarily ambitious goals,
astonishing breakthroughs can be expected
