Two Sigma

I passed online challege and then did a phone interview. The guy was pretty impressive with my solution and all. At the end he said the recruiter will contact me for an onsite next week.

So next week the recruiter didn’t contact me, and didn’t reply my email. Then out of curiosity, I checked LinkedIn and found she is not a recruiter, but a coordinator/scheduler.

I have another HFT offer already, just want to compare that with Two Sigma.

Just an impression other HFT’s are much more responsive than Two Sigma.

Appreciate Two Sigma people’s insights.

Thank you!

    Just an update for these in similar situation:

    I finally got an onsite interview invitation from Two Sigma. They’re just way too slow. I am not too sure about timing because my other offer is from one as prestigious as, possibly more prestigious than them. :)

    Also as an encouragement to my fellow Googler, HFT’s are not that hard to get in, I actually have many more onsite, phone, online assessment in the pipeline.

      Do you mind saying the more prestigious place, or at least a list containing it? Am interested in applying to top tier hedge funds or trading firms.

      @O.P.

      My limit perspective/experience as following:

      2S, JS and HRT in NYC are young so you may have more potential growth, I guess. Citadel is also young, but in Chicago. De Shaw in NYC is very old fashion, a little uptight. :) Bridgewater, I think in Connecticut, has a very unique culture, you can google it to see if you like.

      There are many HFT’s in Chicago, like Akuna, optiver, DRW...

      Googler probably fits 2S better, they have similar culture/environment/people as Google.

      GL!

    It took Two Sigma about 10 days to contact me after the phone screen. Be patient.

    How hard was the hacker rank assessment? LC medium is good enough?

      Overall they are harder than Google or Facebook. I would say LC medium-hard.

      I am still considering. I like Google and am pretty happy there, but I would like to explore new things since I am still very young. :)

      Good luck with Two Sigma!
