At Direct Line Group, we’re shaping the future. With a mission to make insurance easier and better value for our customers, we embrace change in all its richness and variety. It’s not just what we do; it’s how we do it. We bring our whole selves to work every day and embrace fresh thinking – after all, Britain is constantly changing and to protect the nation, we adapt with it.
We have a diverse array of established brands – including Direct Line, Churchill, Privilege and Green Flag – change takes many forms. We are always evolving, and one proof of this is the establishment of our InsureTech business.
Why do we need a Data Scientist?
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.
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.
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 want you to join us to:
