Liberty Mutual Insurance Company - Boston, MA

Data Scientist - Solaria Labs','90657','!*!The economy

is transforming: self-driving cars, the Internet of Things, the Sharing and Gig

Economies, and an ever-changing set of lean start-ups are major contributors to

the disruption of classic business models. To adapt, Liberty Mutual has

established Solaria Labs, an innovation center dedicated to testing new ideas, building

products, and launching new companies.

 

THE TEAM

Solaria

Labs is a rapid prototyping and ‘build’ arm within Liberty Innovation,

partnering and co-developing with startups, universities like MIT, and data-rich

“Smart Cities” like Boston, Chicago, and Singapore.  We are looking for technical leaders who are

entrepreneurial, passionate about impacting change, and willing to test and

learn.  Does building a new future for a

Fortune 100 company like Liberty Mutual excite you? If so, join our team!

 

THE CHALLENGE

To thrive

in tomorrow’s economy, we must launch into fields beyond our core insurance

practice to diversify our business and revenue streams.  We are looking for fresh and modern

perspectives on our 100 years of data and expertise.  Can our models of storm and fire risks help you

choose which home to buy, or where homes on the market are undervalued?  Can GPS samples from our fleet of cars

determine which neighborhoods are safe to walk and bike, or can we plan a route

to minimize your risk while driving to work? 

At Solaria, we are rapidly launching new data-driven products where

public interest and markets are merely a new perspective on our core models.

 

THE ROLE

You will

support research and development efforts in a diverse set of challenges as we

rapidly prototype and build new products.  Many of the concepts we develop require novel

use of Liberty Mutual and partner data, and the application of current and

emerging machine learning techniques.  You

will interact with product and engineering teams to implement your solutions

within internal and customer facing software products.  Responsibilities include:

Translate

product ideas into well-posed data science challenges, and solve themFind new

markets and novel applications for our core internal dataDesign and

deploy Machine Learning (ML) systems backing our productsTranslate

and champion our ML capabilities for non-technical audiencesParticipate

in the broader ML community to stay current with the latest techniques and
