Data Science at Policygenius...

Policygenius continues to disrupt the insurance industry by delivering innovative technology-driven experiences. We are advancing our tech capabilities and learning to leverage our hordes of data to develop innovative machine learning applications. We are relentless in our drive to reliably deliver outstanding products at scale. We are growing fast, but we can go further faster with experienced, collaborative, challenge-seeking data analysts like yourself.

Our data science team builds machine learning applications that are embedded into our consumer facing applications or power our processes to make us more efficient. However, before getting to that point there is a lot of research and many hypotheses need to be tested to generate learnings we can later automate with machine learning. We partner with Product, Design, Engineering and numerous stakeholders across the company to develop deeper predictors of behavior and help reinforce decisions intended to optimize our internal and external experiences.

In this role, you will…

  • Partner with a business stakeholder or product team to help move their analytical strategy forward
  • Create visualizations intended to monitor business performance or uncover interesting trends to investigate
  • Lead the test and learn process we use for exploratory data analysis and A/B testing. This includes helping PM’s decide on testing strategy, generating baselines, approximating sample sizes and performing analysis of test results 
  • Help our teams move beyond visualizations and utilize inferential and causal modeling to uncover deeper trends from a quantitative perspective, and design and test interventions
  • Structure and lead our strategic framework from an analytical perspective on your team 
  • Partner with data engineering on new data pipelines and ingestion requests as well as advise on data model improvements 
  • Wrangle and stitch together many disparate data sources and uncover deep insights to drive your team forward
  • Mentor data analyst team members and learn from data scientists to advance into predictive and algorithmic solutions

We’d love to hear from you if…

  • You have 2-5+ years of experience as an analyst working in a consumer facing business and coding in Python or R while using SQL/relational cloud databases
  • You have a background in math, statistics, computer science or related technical field
  • You have experience with web analysis such as creating product funnels, user behavior, and paths
  • You have experience with designing and analyzing experiments including but not limited to A/B testing
  • You have an understanding of business metrics such as CAC, LTV, Conversion Rates and can apply them to your decision making and prioritization as well as creating and managing analysis frameworks
  • You understand statistics and base models such as linear and logistic regression and possibly segmentation methods and can pick up other techniques such as time series analysis, outlier and anomaly detection, categorical data analysis and more!
  • You have experience working on product teams, collaborating with other data science team members, and can articulate ideas to both team members and non-technical stakeholders
  • You have a drive to learn and master new technologies and techniques.

Technologies You Will Use

  • Python for data pipelining and automation
  • Google Cloud Platform: Kubernetes, Cloud SQL, Cloud Functions, PubSub, BigQuery, DataStore, and more: we keep adopting new tools as we grow
  • Airflow for data pipelining
  • Tableau for data visualization and consumer facing dashboards
  • Many more to come!

You can expect...

  • Company-paid health, dental, vision, life & disability insurance
  • 401(k) plan, FSA & commuter benefits
  • Generous PTO 
  • Training, mentorship and coaching from leadership
  • The opportunity to grow alongside a company shaking up a big, old-fashioned industry
  • Fun, diverse, open-minded coworkers
  • Dog companionship!!!

An Insider's view of Policygenius

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Think: startup meets productive adult office. The fridge is stocked with La Croix and there's usually a dog or two running around, but there's no ping pong. Everyone works hard and takes the job seriously. Strict "no chuckleheads allowed" policy. People are cool and from a really wide range of backgrounds.

Adam

Senior Product Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

All of the normal challenges of building a modern (fairly cutting edge actually, if I do say so myself), scalable tech stack, just with the added twist of integrating with a bunch of fairly archaic APIs. The insurance industry historically isn't exactly a bastion of modern technology, but we're doing our darnedest to change that.

Trevor

Senior Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Teamwork and problem-solving go a long way on my team and at Policygenius overall. I would say that individual ideas are not only supported but more importantly, encouraged. I'm consistently challenged, but always learning; our environment promotes both individual and professional growth. I'm looking forward to moving to the next level!

Masuda

Customer Success Team Lead

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision for Policygenius is to be the go-to consumer platform for insurance and financial protection. What Expedia did for travel, we're doing for financial protection. We're already the top platform for under-50 consumers for life insurance and disability insurance, and we're excited to expand that to new categories in 2019!

Jen

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

So many team members have really interesting stories about their time before Pg. We’ve got trivia champions, ex-magicians, chicken bag experts, and even someone who used to be Madonna’s assistant. It’s all story-telling gold.
