Culture of Learning
We want to help everyone here grow and get better. And as our company gets bigger, the opportunities for teaching, growth, and mobility multiply. We encourage everyone to contribute – by leading classes, study groups or brown-bag lunch talks, writing for our internal blog, screening movies, or sharing their knowledge another way.
The Way Two Sigma Works
Why are fun and autonomy crucial to our work? How does our work help real people? How many synapses are there in a human brain?
How We Think About Data
The volume and velocity of data is increasing exponentially—and with it, its uses. At Two Sigma, we find patterns, meaning and relationships in the world’s data to create value for our investors.
How do nice geeks learn, work, and innovate together?
We take care of our people. We offer an extremely competitive benefits package, including medical, dental and disability insurance, and flexible healthcare and commuter spending accounts. We also offer a 401(K) plan with partial company match. Nevertheless, our most popular wellness benefit might be our multiple enormous kitchens, which are always stocked high with a range of snacks and drinks.
How would someone who works at Two Sigma describe the people here? How does a book club help investment management? Who’s the dude on the unicycle?
Many TS-ers have ideas for new projects, but limited ways to explore them. Others have valuable insight to bring to projects, but might not know about all that’s going on across the company. Enter Spark. It’s our internal open-source platform where people can share and collaborate on ideas. It all comes together in Spark Day, where selected ideas are presented to the entire firm. Starting this year, the people behind the audience favorite will win sabbatical time to bring their vision to life.
At Two Sigma, we use Open Source Software, and we’re passionate about giving back to the programming community. That’s why we shared the code to Beaker, our notebook-style development environment that lets researchers in different fields interact with their data and build models more efficiently. We think of Beaker as the Universal Translator for Data Scientists. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. You’ll find more information on it here.
How do we help non-profits use data to their advantage? When they need to ask for donations to fund a project, is it more effective to ask for more or less money than they actually need?
At Two Sigma we know that diversity drives innovation.
BE@TS aims to foster racial and ethnic diversity at Two Sigma by supporting a culture that is inclusive to people of color.
ouTSigma brings focus and resources to the recruitment, development, and retention of LGBTQ talent.
Women@TS (W@TS) is designed to provide targeted support to female employees across all areas of the company.
