Corporate PMO - HR Projects Lead
New York, New York, United States
More than 1000 people who believe the scientific method is the best way to approach investing. Ideas backed up with information, and improved by iteration. That’s Two Sigma. We’re not your typical investment manager. We follow principles of technology and innovation as much as principles of investment management. Fields like machine learning and distributed computing guide us. Since 2001, we’ve searched for ways that these kinds of technologies can make us better at what we do. We never stop researching and developing. In the process, we work to help real people. Through our investors, we support the retirements of millions around the world. And we help fund breakthrough research, education and a wide range of charities and foundations.
The Corporate Platforms and Initiatives group (PMO) within Two Sigma works with functional groups to design and implement scalable business processes and technology solutions to support the firm growth.

- A background in HR consulting would be ideal, though not required.
