(B2B) Data Scientist

Published date Posted on RemotiveIO on Nov 22, 2022 (7 d ago)

Zego is a commercial motor insurance provider that powers opportunities for businesses, from fleets of just two vehicles to global enterprises, and for individual drivers and riders. Its mission is to provide businesses and people with insurance they control, saving them both time and money.

The problem that exists is that in an ever-changing world, traditional insurance holds businesses back. Zego, on the other hand, helps businesses to unlock their full potential by putting them in control. Using smart technology and sophisticated data sources, Zego gives businesses the power to monitor and improve their driving performance over time, enabling them to save money by retaining a great price for their cover. It also helps businesses save time, making the administrative side of things easy and the claims process effortless.

Since its inception in 2016, Zego has grown to support businesses in the UK and across Europe and has forged partnerships with businesses such as BP, Amazon and Uber. Zego has also raised $280 million in funding and was the first UK insurtech to be valued at over $1 billion.

The mission of the B2B Data team at Zego is to leverage novel data sources and modern computational tools to deliver value through data-driven insights for Business to Business insurance products.

  • You will contribute to improving Zegos understanding how driver behaviour relates to actuarial risk and how Zegos can leverage the insights to disrupt the way the industry currently operates
  • You will work with the team Data Engineers and Analysts to action the models and insights produced by Data Science
