Senior Backend Data Engineer

You are a passionate backend data engineer who can design highly scalable and reliable data pipelines to consume, integrate, and analyze large volumes of data from different sources to support the quickly developing needs of our business. You’re able to work closely with colleagues in engineering, data science, and product management, but also able to work independently. You’re interested in psychology, and in what motivates individual differences in human behavior. If this is you, then this is an opportunity that you can’t miss:

We have developed the most powerful risk computer ever built for P&C insurers. We provide
loss predictions more accurately, faster, and earlier in time than previously possible, to a quickly growing group of home, auto, and small-business carriers. Our platform generates custom, turnkey predictions for actuarial loss, litigation propensity, SIU referral, early cancellation, and premium leakage, at top of funnel and prior to renewal. The savings unlocked for each carrier reach 8-9 figures per year, thanks to our platform's leveraging of trillions of data points, behavioral economics, and the first deep learning applied to these areas.

Our Proof of Value requires only a couple hours of client work and returns back verifiable lift and ROI
calculations within the first week, as well as a suite of explainable data visualizations. We work with insurers' business owners and actuarial teams to quantify these unpriceable risks at the beginning of the customer journey. Please visit www.pinpoint.ai to learn more about how we are providing the largest and fastest time to value in the P&C ecosystem
