Two SigmaPioneering investment management through technology
What is Two Sigma?
Two Sigma is a technology company that applies a rigorous, scientific method-based approach to investment management. Since our founding in 2001, Two Sigma’s vision has been to develop technological innovations that intelligently analyze the world’s data to consistently deliver value for our clients. Our technology – inspired by a diverse set of fields including artificial intelligence and distributed computing – and our commitment to Research & Development aim to ensure that our methods are constantly improving and advancing.
Two Sigma’s engineers are passionate about technology and its tremendous potential to solve the hardest problems. We seek individuals who want to build for today and invent for tomorrow. We value curiosity and insight, balanced with pragmatism and practicality. We recognize both the small steps, as well as the broad vision.
We are looking for talented individuals who like to solve hard problems – people who love intellectual challenges, thrive in a collaborative environment, and want to see what they do make a difference.

Generous teaching and active learning are woven into our everyday interactions. We encourage each individual to contribute to our collective development by teaching classes, hosting study groups, writing thought pieces for our internal blog, or creating learning paths to advance knowledge sharing.
Our culture of teaching and mentorship includes frequent programs focused on learning and development – from employee-driven Brown Bag lunch talks to our ongoing series of guest speakers. We also offer a wide variety of opportunities for professional growth, including leadership development, technical skills training, and cross-disciplinary working groups focused on strategic initiatives.
Technology drives our business. We focus on researching and developing cutting-edge platforms and tools to create sophisticated data analysis and trading systems. With the power of thousands of computers, we aim to collect, organize, and analyze the world’s vast data efficiently and effectively.
Our technology includes:
- a flexible domain-specific language and platform specially designed for high-volume time series data processing, transformation, and visualization
- data compression technologies that increase read throughput and decrease storage requirements by orders of magnitude
- privately-run data centers that house petabytes of data and tens of thousands of CPUs
- state-of-the-art networking technology and internally-optimized processors and operating systems, which combine to achieve some of the lowest latencies in our industry
- a custom-built, highly-optimized distributed file system with snapshotting capabilities
- a high-performance streaming time series database
- a distributed task scheduler
- a simulation farm with flexible scheduling
With an agile development process emphasizing frequent releases and a long-term vision, we are obsessed with continuous improvement. We are constantly evaluating each part of our platform to learn, iterate, and advance.
