Data Scientist

Full time
Assured aims to disrupt the trillion-dollar insurance industry by modernizing its most archaic component: claims. Currently, 300,000 claims adjusters spend their days talking on the phone and typing into unstructured text fields. We can do better—by combining logic, inference, and modern computer vision tools, we're able to both increase efficiency and improve customer satisfaction. By rearchitecting how the underlying information is ingested and stored, we're poised to transform the very nature of insurance.  

We're two second time founders out of Stanford who care about transforming the world with software. We've built companies from enterprise software to aerospace, and couldn't be more excited about taking on the insurance industry. We are looking for an experienced Data Scientist to join our team as we continue building out our product and deploy it to some of the largest insurance carriers in the world.

There's so much to do. We can't wait for you to join us.

You'd love this role if...

🔥 You're passionate about reimagining archaic industries
🖖 You want to work on a small, close knit team of brilliant engineers consumed by a consequential and yet-unsolved problem
🐾 Being a trailblazer—in our architecture, in our approach, and in our team—is an inspiration, not a burden

You will...

👩‍💻Apply statistical models on large datasets to: i) measure results and outcomes, ii) identify causal impact and attribution, iii) predict future user behavior
🗣️ Lead and mentor other engineers on the growing team
📐Design, analyze, and interpret the results of experiments
📋Design models that handle both tabular and unstructured data
🚘Drive the collection of new data and the refinement of existing data sources

You may be a fit if you...

🚢 Have built and shipped meaningful and complex products
🧠 Have strong opinions about software engineering–that at the same time you aren't afraid to reevaluate/change
🚀 Have a background in, or a desire to dive into, the world of startups
⏰ Bring 5+ years of data science experience that shows a hunger for future growth and mentoring
