Senior Actuarial Associate, Car

Soho, New York | Insurance

We’re looking for a Senior Actuarial Associate who is ready to revolutionize insurance!  In this role, you’ll be managing rate levels, building advanced pricing tools, and bringing actuarial discipline to all kinds of questions—distribution, underwriting, claims, and everything in between.  You’ll also leverage competitive data and data science to optimize our customers’ experience and ensure fairness and accuracy in pricing. 

Specifically, you’ll be an owner and expert on our state rating plans and rate indications. This means you’ll contribute to predictive modeling projects; work closely with Data Science on pricing models; craft rate filing support for new machine learning models; and identify areas for pricing and underwriting action based on ongoing monitoring of results. At the same time, you’ll build a knowledge base of competitor rating strategies and the overall competitive landscape, and further your own actuarial education through CAS exams and industry research while applying those learnings on the job.

Do you live outside a commutable range of NYC, but still think you're a perfect match for this role? If so, please don't hesitate to apply.
