At Two Sigma, we have the resources to generate alpha.

10,000+ data sets, 1800+ terabytes of memory, and supercomputer-level computing. Our tools and platforms are custom built by top engineers, enabling the creativity our researchers are known for.

Seeking creative minds:

We’re looking for people who see beauty in data and the possibilities it reveals.

Quantitative Research

Data Science

Develop inspired ideas through scientific thinking, curiosity, and precision. Systematically test and expand hypotheses to shape company strategy.

Seek out patterns and trends in the world’s data. Then harness these insights to help us forecast the movement of global markets.

Working at the intersection of unique data sets and new business problems is the dream of every data scientist. I am very fortunate to lead a team who have this opportunity every day, as we work to develop novel data science tools and processes that can directly support Two Sigma’s diverse businesses. From real estate, to private equity, and venture capital, the data is incredibly diverse, and we work with partners to identify how data-driven decision making can create a long-term competitive advantage.

Drew Conway

Data Scientist

My team looks at how text-based data like the news can impact the markets. We get to tackle challenging, unstructured problems in creative ways, and I find the open-endedness to be incredibly exciting.

Callie Mao

Quantitative Researcher

As a Quantitative Researcher, I leverage real world data to solve some of the most interesting problems in the investment management space. Two Sigma's scientific approach contributes to a very engaging and stimulating work environment while collaborating with some of the most kind and talented people I know helps fast-track my growth as a researcher and scientist.

Vasilis Oikonomou

Quantitative Researcher

Curiosity plays a big role in modeling at Two Sigma – we’re always developing new areas of research, exploring the relationship between a conceptual hypothesis, and the structured, quantitative representation of that idea with the firm’s vast data holdings. Each research question we encounter presents new and exciting challenges, both abstract and pragmatic. It’s a really satisfying process, finding an idea in an academic paper or a newspaper article, and turning it into a signal.
