The Two Sigma companies have built expertise in fast-moving financial markets, weaving petabytes of data together into tradeable insights. Two Sigma Insurance Quantified brings this data science discipline to insurance.

We’re not trying to change everything overnight. Insurance is a big, complex industry with smart players. But we know data is changing the world. And we believe that insurance leaders share our vision for where we can go together. They’re ready for a shift—and the real benefits of data science and a cutting edge technology stack.

  • Application Engineering — support for structured management of services (scale-out, logging, - authn/authz etc)
  • Insurance Engineering — insurance-industry specific capabilities
  • Insurance Products — products built on lower layers with front-end capabilities for partners

All using modern software dev tools and approach — Agile dev with CI/CD tools

Technical Challenges

Greenfield environment, so we can pick and choose best tools and approach. Big data problem, scale, availability, serviceability with security. Platform enables delivery of SaaS — so multi-tenancy etc. support needed.
