Job Description

Our client is a leading insurance company looking to build out their Data Science team, and is growing to become more data-driven to improve their customers' experience. Members of the team create an eclectic group of intellectuals passionate about using data to make a positive impact on the business.

As a Data Science Analyst, you will utilize statistical methods and machine learning techniques to create predictive models, and pinpoint trends in the business forecast. This position is also responsible for extracting and polishing large data sets for model building, and working with business sponsors and IT teams to enact analytic solutions to business problems. Communicating insights become an integral part of this position, as the extrapolation of such data will come to have a direct impact on the direction of the business.

Past experience with modeling and machine learning platforms, such as R, Python, or SAS, is a necessity in this position. Similarly, you must be passionate about the power of statistics and the need to balance interpretability and ease of implementation. Exposure to C++, Java, or SQL is optional, as the most successful candidate will primarily have a thirst for learning and a passion for working through challenges.
