Data Scientist

Acrisure Technology Group (ATG) is a fast paced, AI and data science driven team building innovative software to disrupt the $6T+ insurance industry.  Our mission is to help the world share its risk more intelligently to power a more vibrant economy. To do this, we are transforming insurance distribution and underwriting into a science. 

At the core of our operating model is our technology: we’re building an AI driven digital marketplace for risk and applying it at the center of Acrisure, a privately held company recognized as one of the world's top 10 insurance brokerages and the fastest growing insurance brokerage globally. By leveraging technology to push the boundaries of understanding and transferring risk, we are systematically converting data into predictions, insights, and choices that drive the insurance industry forward. 

We are a growing team of AI Engineers and Data Scientists, teamed up with seasoned industry expertise.  We are taking an aggressive approach to leverage AI to disrupt all aspects of the insurance industry for the benefit of our customers and society, but there are many problems left to solve.  We have a long term strategy and dedicate time weekly to explore datasets and think about areas for future impact, asking ourselves “what else can we do?”

As a Data Scientist, you will research, develop, and deploy AI and Data Science solutions to support our mission. You will dive deep into datasets and use your expertise to build models that add value to our business and industry.  We believe in starting with the simplest viable solution and iterating as needed, measuring progress and value added along the way.  If this sounds like something you’d like to do, come help us to turn our vision into reality! 

Here are some of the ways in which you’ll achieve impact:
  • Collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders from product, engineering, strategy and operations to run experiments, develop and deploy models at scale that solve real business problems
  • Proactively perform data exploration on a diverse range of user generated and third party datasets, and utilize that data to conduct experiments aimed at solving complex problems
  • Solve problems across a variety of domains, including risk modeling, business optimization and algorithmic marketing
  • Advocate for and identify creative implementations to optimize business impact
  • Present your research and insights to all levels of the organization, and participate in rigorous model reviews with the AI and Data Science team
  • Identify, adopt, and evangelize best practices, helping shape the team as we grow
  • Measure the effectiveness of new models, find and address performance issues, and drive continuous improvement
You may be fit for this role if you:
  • Possess empathy, kindness towards others, a positive attitude, and self-awareness
  • Are entrepreneurial and action-biased; self-directed and excited to build something from scratch in a fast-paced, experimentation-driven environment, taking a scientific and data-driven approach to solving problems
  • Have experience developing quantitative models and deploying them into production, especially if you have experience in a Python based model development stack
  • Possess exceptional knowledge of ML/AI (regression, classification, clustering, and unsupervised learning), applied probability and statistics, mathematical optimization, and software engineering principles
  • Have excellent communication/presentation skills, with a knack for distilling complex quantitative results into compelling visualizations and stories with data
  • Are product and customer-focused
  • Are excited about the opportunity to use data and AI to transform the insurance industry
  • Bring a unique, non-traditional perspective to enhance our team’s problem solving abilities
  • Are willing and able to work from the headquarters in Austin, Texas

We don’t expect that any single candidate will have expertise across all of these areas. But if you are a solid data scientist and eager to work on data or insurance-related platforms/products, we are eager to talk to you.

Our Austin office is downtown and close to public transportation options and very walkable to restaurants and Town Lake.

An Insider's view of Acrisure Technology Group

What are some social events your company does?

We have weekly lunches at the office, which is a great way to bring the team together, as well as doing a Thursday trivia happy hour that is a mix of remote and in office participants. We’ve recently started holding quarterly onsites that have included a scavenger hunt around the city, a bbq and brewery tour, and having fun happy hours downtown.


Employee Engagement Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every team here at ATG builds on the same platform and works on facets of the same product, so there is constant communication between teams. A few great examples of this are frequent design reviews, where engineers across teams talk through new services, and biweekly demos, where teams get to show off what they have been working on lately.


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a leader, the job is to provide as much clarity as possible in what successful outcomes look like and create the space for your team to iterate their way to the destination. It's important to focus your energy on creating the conditions for creative solutions to emerge from the very people who are closest to the innovation process.


Chief Product Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Easy-going and accommodating - you can come in, keep your head down, and grind without an issue. Also after working remote for so long, it's been a pleasant surprise seeing in person what an eclectic group my coworkers are and how there's always someone who's up to kick back or help me figure out whatever I've been banging my head against all day.
