Data Engineer

Employment type:  Full time

Job Description

Hello potential future Ki team member. Are you looking for a technical role in a collaborative environment where innovation is its major driver? Ki is looking for an experienced Data Engineer to join our growing team.

Who are we?

Ki is the biggest global insurance tech company you’ve never heard of, unless you’ve been looking to insure a satellite, wind farm or music festival recently.

We launched in 2021 on the back of a fundraise that delivered $500m of investment, making us one the largest fintech start-ups that year. Our investors were excited about the fact we were revolutionising the way a 333 year-old industry was working. We have rapidly scaled: In our first year we wrote over $400m of premium and in 2022 we doubled that to $834m. We have developed Ki over the course of the past 2 years and created a platform that helps insurance brokers cover risks in a fast and frictionless way. We’re continuing to lead the charge on the digitisation of this market and that’s where you come in - we need more curious minds to work with us to realise this goal and create more opportunities. If helping us transform a multi-billion global industry sounds exciting to you, read on.

Day to Day

We're looking for a Data Engineer to join our Development team.

You will be designing and developing complex data processing modules ranging from ETL to ML working closely with the Ki Algorithm team, who are developing the machine learning models that set Ki apart from the traditional syndicates. In addition, you will also work closely to the Ki Platform Team, responsible for architecting, and operating the core of the Ki platform.

You’ll Work with Actuaries, Data Scientists and Engineers to design, build, optimise and maintain production grade data pipelines to feed the Ki algorithm, as well as, understand how we can make best use of new internal and external data sources.

Our culture

Inclusion & Diversity is at the heart of our business at Ki. We recognise that diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, thought and social background bring richness to our working environment. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, or who you love, we believe you should be you.

You’ll get a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. This is kept under constant review to make sure it stays relevant. We understand the power of saying thank you and take time to acknowledge and reward extraordinary effort by teams or individuals.
