Goodman Masson are working with a large UK insurance firm who are searching for a Senior Data Scientist to work alongside their Actuarial & Pricing teams to lead the R&D activity within their Insurance team.

In the role you will be using your knowledge of data science and machine learning techniques to push forward their pricing and predictive modelling capabilities.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Developing quantative and qualitative methods to evaluate performance of existing pricing methods

- Research, design and test alternative methods

- Support data enrichment through the evaluation of the plethora of data that is available

- Engage with and influence senior stakeholders to make recommendations for alternative approaches to pricing

You will ideally have a background within general insurance and have a good knowledge of GLM pricing.
