Senior Data Scientist – Insurance Pricing

We are looking for an experienced Data Scientist to join the InsureTech arm of a leading UK insurer. This role benefits from the agile, fluid environment of a start-up, with the ability to make decisions and implement change quickly, with the financial backing and stability of a major insurance group.

The successful candidate will also enjoy varied, project based, research and development work, exploring and utilising data science techniques including machine learning to improve predictive models and analytics.

This is a great opportunity to push the boundary of modelling approaches to realise our client’s ambition to build and deploy the best predictive insurance models and analyses ever created. You will bring your experience in data science and bold attitude to modelling approaches within insurance. If you already have some insurance industry experience that’s great, but you will be working alongside some of the best in the business who will share their knowledge and skills with you.

You will be working with the very cutting edge of technology, and unlike some start-ups this is a well-funded, agile environment utilising opensource, emerging technologies and machine learning. The most advanced tech on the market will be available to you, and where what is available already isn’t enough, it will be built bespoke.

This role will:

* Contribute positively to the team and the process to continuously improve solutions to business challenges

* Strive continuously to improve the impact and efficiency of all modelling and prediction processes and techniques – new data, new techniques, new use-cases

* Be part of a process of continual skills and knowledge development for you and the team, mentoring others and developing yourself

Requirements:

* Creative thinker with great communication skills

* Delivery and business focussed

* Team player

* Educated to at least degree level (or equivalent) in mathematics, stats, OR, data science – likely with an MSc

* Scientific Python/Pandas skills a strong plus (or evidence of ability and desire to learn them fast)

* Knowledge and understanding of statistical and predictive modelling approaches, ideally with experience of applying them in a business context

* Experience of having worked in an insurance start-up or related field already would be strong plus, but isn’t essential – as long as the desire to do so is there.
