Data Scientist - Insurance ($200k - $350k)

San Francisco, CA /
Data Science /
A million people a year die in car collisions around the world and we want that number to be zero. We invite you to help us build an InsurTech company that uses rich customer insights, advanced technology and data science to save lives by preventing car collisions before they happen.  To this end, we recently helped launch our first product,, a cloud native insurance solution that rewards people for the act of driving well. 
With impressive funding, a compelling vision, and a world-class team, we're poised to re-engineer a trillion-dollar category from the ground up- and that's just where we're beginning.  Longer term, we're out to change behavior and promote mindful living at a societal level. 

We're seeking someone to build and support critical backend systems and services that are core to our business. This includes the rewards system that will be used to increase driver safety, designing APIs, creating/managing databases, and writing automated test suites.

General tools you build will be open sourced and will ideally be consumed by the greater community.
