Our Approach

  • At Two Sigma, we strive to make every interview a personal experience that reflects your background and the roles you are being considered for. To help you get ready, we’ve outlined some things to consider before your interviews and clarity on what to expect.

  • Our interviews are conducted over video conferencing for a simple reason – Remote interviewing allows us the flexibility to best accommodate candidate and interviewer schedules, giving you the most efficient recruiting process possible.

  • You’ll work with a Recruiting Coordinator specifically assigned to your schedule, receive a calendar hold for your interviews, and a final email confirmation the business day prior with your remote interview logistics.

Key Information
for Applicants

Confirm your interview type

Logistics including video links or office visit details will be sent via email the day before your scheduled interview date.

Be mindful of time

Allow yourself some extra time before your scheduled start time to address any potential video connectivity issues or unexpected transit delays.

Have your resume handy

If you update your resume just prior to your interview, make sure to email it to us in advance.

Respect for your time

If after a few interviews we feel we don’t have the right position for you at Two Sigma, your time with us may be shorter than the slot originally allotted. We want to respect your time and energy so we will communicate with you along the way if you will proceed to additional interviews.

Clarity on next steps

If you don't meet with your recruiter during your interview day, a member of the team will reach out in the following business days. If you have any immediate questions, please reach out to your recruiter.

Future consideration

While we may not have found a fit for you now, we will keep your information on file and contact you in the future should a more suitable position present itself. We encourage you to reapply if you find another interesting position.

Tips for Remote Interviewing

  • Access

    Your remote interview will take place via Google Meet or Microsoft Teams. You’ll receive your meeting link via email the evening prior to your scheduled interview. You’ll have to be let into the meeting.

  • Set up

    We ask that you log into your meeting 10 minutes prior to your first interview. Our Candidate Experience Coordinator will troubleshoot any technical difficulties and review your itinerary.

  • During the interview

    Your meeting link is the same for the interviews you are scheduled for on a given day, so interviewers will join at their scheduled time and candidates can remain in the same meeting. You just have to relax.

  • We're here to help
