Job Description

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.

Purpose of the Role

As a Staff Data Scientist on the Algorithmic Underwriting team, you will contribute and help drive improvements in Ki's data science capability. This includes improving development scale, quality, and velocity of data science across KI's squads, teams, and business functions.

In this role you’ll develop, iterate, and implement governance processes related to the effective use of data science in algorithmic underwriting. Ensuring that these processes are efficient, fit for purpose, and easy to follow.

You’ll excel in collaborating with business partners in Engineering, Underwriting, and Product to ensure we are commercially focused and able to effect change. Help formulate business opportunities and challenges into strategic data and analytics processes and solutions.

This is a great opportunity for individuals who enjoy managing, mentoring and guiding junior data scientists, whilst coordinating and supporting data scientists and teams to scope, design, deploy, and maintain Ki's suite of data and analytics solutions in the algorithm.

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.
