Description

We are a high-growth startup using data and machine learning to revolutionise the insurance industry. You will be joining an established team, working to build products that are fundamentally changing the way insurers see the world, enabling them to move from an assumption based understanding of risk, to an empirical, data-driven view.

What working as a Data Scientist at Cytora looks like

Cytora’s Resolve Team is an interdisciplinary team, and you will be working alongside data engineers, software engineers and data scientists. The team is responsible for entity resolution as well as for ingesting, maintaining and making usable sector specific datasets.

We have a challenging pipeline that requires you to work outside the box and beyond the state of the art. We therefore need you to have a deep understanding of how the technology you’re using works and its limits. We are also a team of builders, so you will be coming up with solutions rather than algorithms - owning your idea, communicating with product, engineering and your coworkers to develop and deploy it.

  • Ability to work in a fast moving environment
  • Drive to share knowledge with peers and empower your team
  • Problem-solving and inquisitive mind and a self-starter attitude

Bonus points:

  • Experience working in a startup environment
