The Way Two Sigma Works
How We Think About Data
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.
