Principal Data Scientist - InsureTech

Churchill Court, BR1 1DP
Full time

What we’re looking for

We need your help to push the boundary of modelling approaches to realise our 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. This role is unlike any other at DLG - or we believe any other Insurance company for that matter - as it is more akin to one at a start-up.

You will join our brand new Darwin business, launched only in April of this year. Key to us will be your desire to learn. This coupled with your Data Science background, agile way of thinking and dynamic personality will make you successful here. 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. We are looking for someone to make a real contribution in shaping the evolving business (and in turn the wider DLG) in its journey to provide easier and better value insurance.

What you’ll be doing

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, we will build our own.

  • We will look for you to contribute positively to the team and the process to continuously improve our solutions to business challenges
  • Strive continuously to improve the impact and efficiency of all our 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.

Who you'll be working with

The Darwin team consists of true subject matter experts within their fields, and you will have the opportunity to grow with them as the team expands. You are reporting into Andy Saunders, Head of InsureTech and work as part of the emerging Data Science team within DLG.
