You will work closely with the Underwriting, Distribution, Claims, and Technology teams. The ideal candidate is a highly skilled actuary who is passionate about working with data, technically proficient, curious about understanding new insurance products (predominantly P&C and Professional lines), and a clear communicator.

We are a fully remote company. If you want to work with smart and talented coworkers who will challenge and support you in a fast-paced environment, then this might be the opportunity for you!

  • Build relationships internally and collaborate effectively across Underwriting, Distribution, Claims, and Technology teams.

You will be successful if you have

  • Associate/Fellow IFOA.

  • Communicate and collaborate well with both technical and non-technical audiences.
