Data Scientist - InsureTech

Xcede's Data Science recruitment team have partnered with a very exciting InsureTech firm who are looking to add to their pre-existing Data Science unit In London. With their unique technology platform they enable a better, more cost-effective process for underwriters, various insurance channels, and crucially, their customers!

The chosen candidate will have a blend of experience that reflects the strengths of the other members within the Data Science & Data Engineering unit there;

- Working experience within underwriting companies (or a strong knowledge of this area due to previous academic studies)
- Significant modelling and machine learning experience
- Strong engineering skills, ideally demonstrated through previous data pipeline and/or productionisation work.

In return, the chosen candidate will have the opportunity to work with a highly talented data science and data engineering function. It's a great chance to apply existing domain knowledge & technical ability in a more innovative (fast paced) area of the insurance sector!


- MSc/PhD in Mathematics / Statistics / Computer Science (or a similarly related area)
- Expert knowledge of relevant statistical and machine learning methods for projects within the underwriting / insurance space (ideally motor insurance).
