D. E. Shaw Renewable Investments (DESRI) seeks a resourceful individual to join its team as an analyst. The analyst will help augment investing efforts in the renewable energy space. DESRI has successfully built three industry-leading renewable energy companies within the firm, including First Wind, Deepwater Wind, and DESRI. The group has raised over $15 billion of debt and equity capital, and actively acquires, develops, and manages long-term contracted renewable energy assets in North America; DESRI also currently owns and/or operates over 4,500 MWac of capacity in operation or under construction, with an additional pipeline of projects in excess of 2 GW. The role offers the opportunity to join a collegial, dynamic, and inclusive working environment as part of a highly-skilled team.


What you’ll do day-to-day

The analyst will be responsible for building financial models to support management investment decisions, with a focus on modeling project returns, optimizing capital structure, identifying risks and potential upside, and presenting analytical findings in a clear and concise manner.

Additionally, the analyst will be responsible for maintaining financial models throughout the deal-closing process, assisting the team on due diligence for new projects, and supporting the asset management team on project models, annual budgets, and compliance issues.

What We Do

The D. E. Shaw group is trusted by investors across the world to manage their assets by seeking the optimal balance of risk and reward. While we’re known as a pioneer in quantitative investing, we also have considerable expertise in areas that involve fundamental analysis or portfolio manager discretion. We use a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools to uncover independent, hard-to-find sources of return across global public and private markets.

Within the D. E. Shaw group, we run on collaboration, not internal competition. Teams work together to share trade ideas, identify and address risks, build tools, and explore new opportunities. Our staff includes world-class mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, economists, analysts, business-builders, and system architects relying on specialized trading, operational, and compliance expertise developed over 30 years.

We believe a strong culture of rigorous analysis and scientific research, supported by a robust infrastructure, is the bedrock of a successful quantitative investment process. We aim to identify statistically robust market inefficiencies through hypothesis formulation, testing, and validation based on practical knowledge of markets and advanced computational methods.
