“Two Sigma is thrilled to continue our sponsorship of NumFOCUS,” said Julia Meinwald, Open Source Coordinator. “Two Sigma’s goal is to find value in the world’s data, and we depend on projects like NumPy, pandas, and Jupyter to analyze this data. We know we’re not alone in relying on projects like these, and we’re committed to helping maintain the open source infrastructure critical to so many lines of business. Together with NumFOCUS, we can support the data science tools we depend on, contribute to diversity and inclusion in scientific computing, and strengthen our relationship with a passionate community of open source advocates.”

In addition to their sponsorship, Two Sigma has supported their software engineer Sam Brice to work with NumFOCUS throughout spring 2019 as our first NumFOCUS Visiting Fellow. During his fellowship, Sam will implement a variety of initiatives to improve the long-term sustainability of our open source projects. In particular, he will help define and create a default governance framework with systems and processes for ensuring healthy growth of a diverse and inclusive contributor community.
NumFOCUS is grateful to Two Sigma, and all of our corporate sponsors, for their generous and vital support of our open source software projects.

We want to make sure that the OSS projects that we and so many others rely on will still be functional far into the future. Supporting OSS can take many forms: making substantial contributions to projects we use regularly, open sourcing tools we’ve developed in house, and financially sponsoring non-profits that contribute to a healthy open source ecosystem. That’s why we are a Corporate Partner of NumFOCUS. Two Sigma is proud to support NumFOCUS sponsored projects pandas and Jupyter.
