As a Data Scientist in our R&D team, you’ll contribute to the design of the machine-learning platform to enhance:

Risk Modelling (analysis of the risk attached to individual insurance clients or insurance portfolios) Demand Modelling (modeling portfolio behaviour and the probability of potential clients to buy our products or renew their contracts) Price Optimization (making sure we propose our insurance product at the correct price to every potential client)
