The problems you work on could range from structured data problems through to natural language processing. You will also work with the Head of Data Science and other Lead Data Scientists to help set the direction of the department and shape our ways of working.

The role will be within Admiral’s UK insurance business, primarily working with our Customer, Claims, and Text Analytics teams.

  • 4+ years’ experience working in Data Science or a relevant field. 
  • Commercial experience using supervised learning techniques such as decision trees, GLMs, random forests or gradient boosted ensembles.
  • Proficient in relevant languages such as Python & R.
  • Exceptional numerical ability and creative thinker / problem solve.
  • Ability to initiate and drive projects to completion with minimal guidance.
  • Excellent communication skills with technical and non-technical audiences and a desire to work within a fast paced, dynamic team environment.
