Now Hiring: Are you a driven and motivated Data Scientist or a Senior Software Engineer?

Remote Algorithm Engineer (Senior, Python / ML, Europe)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION::

Our broker platform is the core technology crucial to our success – allowing us to evolve underwriting intelligently and unlock massive scale.
We’re looking for algorithm engineers to join our Portfolio Management team. You will work at the intersection of underwriting and algorithm development, developing machine learning enabled products that operate across over 25 classes of business ranging from Commercial Properties to Oil Rigs to Event Contingency insurance.

You will help us better evaluate every single risk on its own merits, and on how it helps us build a profitable and stable portfolio, all in the space of under a minute. From large scale geospatial analysis to manage our exposure to natural catastrophes to research and development on low data volume machine learning approaches for classes of business with very few claims (like Terrorism insurance!).
We operate at the point where the two very different worlds of technology and specialty insurance meet, and you will be part of both.

PROJECT STACK and TEAM::

Team Size and Location: In total about 100-150 people across Product, Engineering, Data capabilities. Working across different squads (about 15). Most of these are multidisciplinary. Almost all of them are in the UK with some team members working remote. 5 Software Engineers in Poland.

This project team collaborates during regular working hours to develop and deploy a personalized content recommendation system. The team leverages technologies like React/Typescript, Python machine learning, HTML/CSS, Maven, Git/Github, and C#/.NET to deliver a high-quality solution meeting user requirements and industry standards.

  • Frontend Development (React/Typescript):  Implementing user interface components using React and Typescript, ensuring responsiveness and accessibility.
  • Backend Development (Python Machine Learning):  Developing machine learning algorithms for content recommendation, integrating them into the backend system.
  • UI/UX Design (HTML/CSS):  Designing and prototyping user interfaces using HTML and CSS, ensuring intuitive and visually appealing designs.
  • Build and Deployment (Maven, Git/Github):  Managing project dependencies and build processes using Maven, implementing version control and CI/CD pipelines using Git/Github.
  • Integration and Microservices (C#/.NET):  Developing backend services and APIs using C# and .NET, ensuring seamless integration with frontend components and thorough testing.

Availability: 8am to 6pm (London Time)
