Data Scientist At Aviva

Location: Toronto, Ontario

Job Description

Join an exciting team of actuaries, data scientists and engineers at the forefront of using data to drive decisions at every level of our organization. The insurance industry is undergoing a transformation and you get to be in the driver’s seat of this data-driven, technology revolution.


You will work on impactful projects that range from predicting customer life-time values and optimizing customer journeys to incorporating novel data sources for building cutting-edge pricing algorithms. You will leverage machine-learning algorithms to automate and predict claim outcomes and find new and innovative ways to impact our customers. This team is exploring the frontiers of the insurance business such as how to harness the data from connected homes and cars to deliver new types of products to customers.


As a senior data-scientist, you will be part of a dynamic small team with exposure to different business partners and direct influence on future products and innovative solutions. You will propose machine-learning and statistical models for practical applications that impacts millions of customers. You will also mentor and guide your peers in novel approaches and provide peer review for their work. The team has already developed algorithms used in production systems and you will be part of the team that expands the scope of these algorithms. This is your chance to join the InsureTech revolution!


What you need to succeed


As a data-scientist, you will need the following skills and experience to succeed in the role:

  • An educational background in computer-science or engineering, math, statistics, physics or related field. A minimum of MSc is required and Phd preferred.
  • 5+ years of experience with model development and working with large datasets. This can include experience from any industry or academia (post-doc experience).
  • 5+ programming experience in Python or R with good grasp of software engineering standard methodologies such as code-reusability, modularity, use of repos, etc.

What sets you apart

  • A growth mindset with versatile skills and able to work through problems from first-principles.
  • A portfolio of projects that demonstrate your ability to draw inferences from data. This includes participation within the broader data science community including Kaggle competitions or any personal projects with open data.
  • A can-do teammate who is willing to roll-up the sleeves and do whatever is needed to move projects forward. That means at times you will wear different hats and be a project manager, developer, modeler and chief communicator of solutions.
  • Amazing people skills and able to translate and communicate complex algorithms to non-technical individuals. Someone who understands that it is not enough to just have a phenomenal algorithm but meaningful to build an agreement for the solution from different partners.
  • The best problems in the industry are yet to be articulated. We need someone who is creative, self-motivated and can lead projects independently.
