Senior Data Scientist - Analytics (Remote) at Newfront Insurance
From the Lloyd’s of London coffee shop to the moon landing, every venture relies on insurance. The $1 trillion insurance industry is fundamental to our economy and society, but remains stuck in the stone age. Incumbents rely on antiquated pen-and-paper process and there's a huge opportunity to transform it through technology. At Newfront, we're building software to supercharge insurance brokers and help them deliver a delightful experience to clients.
While we’re a technology-driven company, we believe that people and trusted relationships matter. Newfront believes in empowering people rather than "disrupting" them. Our singular mission is to create the future of work for this massive industry.
We believe breakout growth creates breakout opportunities and diversity drives innovation.
As a senior data scientist - analytics, your goal is to help Newfront make data-driven product decisions. You will dive deep into how data is collected in our product and elsewhere and uncover insights from that data. You will have widespread purview over how product analytics is done at the company, which metrics we should create and monitor, how we should test our product features, and identify areas for improvement in the business that have the highest impact. The role reports to the Head of Data.
This position is open to remote candidates with Pacific Time Zone preferred. #LI-Remote
