What we are looking for :
We are looking for someone to work collaboratively on ground-breaking and high impact investigations that will translate directly into product design, pricing and underwriting rulings across DLG’s portfolio of Motor Insurance Brands (Direct Line, Churchill, Privilege, PSA Group and VW Group).
The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of ability to quickly adapt to and exploit new and ground-breaking technology or technologies as well as a degree or above qualification in Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, or a related subject.
You will need a broad knowledge of programming and scripting and strong interpersonal and communication skills.
Prior experience of developing and delivering commercially viable ‘big-data’ analytic solutions. Experience with working in connection with collaborative projects/ dynamic teams. Exposure to using Data Mining algorithms and statistical tools such as Python and experience with Version Control (Git) are all essential to this role.
Who you’ll be working with:
Our Telematics products collect driving data from a wide variety of devices and present it back to our motor insurance customers and pricing teams. It is the Data Science team that define the best data to collect, and how to interpret it using state-of-the-art big data techniques in order to provide insights into how well our customers are driving.
Over the last few years, we’ve demonstrated the value of the telematics data we collect to help our customers and pricing teams understand how well they are driving but we are only scratching the surface of what we can do for our customers.
What you’ll be doing:
In this role, you’ll join a completely new joint team of DLG and The Floow data scientists that has been set up with the specific goal of pushing the boundaries of what we are doing with this telematics data. By working closely with The Floow and with access to new and rich data sources, you will become an authority in this growing field and be a key member of a team with the dedication to reinvent motor insurance.
What we’ll give you:
Come join us and you’ll find yourself in the middle of one of the most on-the-go teams in the business, with autonomy and exposure to industry leaders on huge household brand names. We’re always encouraging internal development and you’ll have access to loads of learning opportunities, events and conferences to build your industry knowledge.
