I am looking for a Senior Data Scientist to join a leading Mission-Driven FinTech company that uses Machine Learning to plug the gaps in the American insurance industry, through their powerful platform ecosystem. The 'gig-economy' aspect allows their independent agents to work in an Uber-style way, maximizing revenue 24/7/365.



  • You will be adept at using large data sets to find opportunities for optimization and can leverage appropriate models to test the effectiveness of different courses of action. 

  • The team uses a variety of data mining and analysis methods, a variety of data tools, builds and implements models, develops algorithms, and creates simulations. 

  • You must be very comfortable writing production-ready code to include testing and maintenance infrastructure, and able to put models and analysis into production with no support from engineering.

  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment where priorities can shift rapidly as they corner opportunity.  

  • You can work independently, with little oversight or guidance.   



  • Proficiency in either Python or R, and expertise in SQL.  

  • Experience working with AWS or another cloud-based computing platform.  

  • Experience and working knowledge of data infrastructure, pipelines, and advanced data manipulation. 

  • Experience with BI tools like Tableau or Looker (preferred), or any other industry tool such as Qlik, PowerBI, Spotfire, etc.

  • Excellent communication ability – you can explain your work in a way that anyone on the team can understand, and you can frame problems in a way that ensures the right question is being asked. 

  • Business Acumen – you are always eager to understand how the business works, and more specifically, how your work impacts the business.  

  • Enthusiastic yet humble – you are excited about the work you do, but you are also humble enough to embrace feedback – you don’t need to be the smartest person in the room. 

  • Bachelor's degree in mathematics, statistics, data science, or related field of study.


On Offer:

  • Strong base salary - Up to $250k

  • Impressive cash/stock bonus scheme

  • Excellent benefits
