We'll be back in person at the Grace Hopper Celebration in Orlando this September. Visit our booth to connect with Engineers and Recruiters from Two Sigma.
Calling All Problem Solvers
At Two Sigma, we solve hard problems every day. We all bring a sense of curiosity to tackling the toughest challenges in finance.
While we share an interest in problem solving, each of us takes a unique approach to getting to a solution. This year at Grace Hopper, we’re showcasing five archetypes that represent our diverse approaches to critical thinking.
Take our light-hearted quiz to find out which approach you lead with.
Booth open during Expo Hall hours.
Find us at Booth 549 in the Expo Hall.

What Type of Problem Solver Are You?
Explorers seek solutions to life’s greatest challenges. Their boundless drive and imagination fuel their desire to make something the world has never seen before.
An Explorer we admire: Betty Holberton
Betty Holberton helped develop several languages and systems including the control panels for UNIVAC, later helping Grace Hopper create COBOL and FORTRAN.
Visionaries see what others can’t. They reveal insights and see patterns in areas that may seem random to others.
A Visionary we admire: Marie Tharp
Prohibited from working aboard a ship, Marie Tharp used bathymetric data to map the ocean floor, including the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Her work confirmed that continental drift was possible.
Creators are powerful builders. They are able to clearly articulate problems and strategize an approach, which enables them to arrive at novel solutions.
A Creator we admire: Dorothy Vaughan
Dorothy Vaughan was a mathematician and computer scientist who worked regularly with NASA, calculating flight paths and programming in the early computer language FORTRAN.
Questioners seek the truth. They dive into research, ask questions, and uncover new territories for exploration.
A Questioner we admire: Maryam Mirzakhani
Maryam Mirzakhani’s work on Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces bridged several mathematical disciplines—hyperbolic geometry, complex analysis, topology, and dynamics—influencing them all in return. Maryam wass the first woman to be awarded the Fields Medal.
Cultivators see the big picture. They foster growth, improve technology, and never stop evolving.
A Cultivator we admire: Jean Bartik
Jean Bartik was one of the original programmers for the ENIAC computer, allowing the ENIAC to operate more quickly, efficiently, and accurately.
