Deployment Lead

at Cytora in London

We are looking for a Deployment Lead to deliver the capabilities of the Cytora Risk Engine to our customers - leading insurance companies - moving them from an assumption based view of the world's commercial risks to an empirical, data-driven one.

As a Deployment Lead you will have the chance to apply your knowledge to significant challenges, and the opportunity to learn continuously. You will gain an in-depth understanding of our cutting edge technology and work across teams to deliver value to our customers. We believe that in 10 years, insurance will resemble asset management (real-time portfolio optimisation) and betting markets (closed systems with dynamic probabilities).

The Role

Deployment Leads are the front line in understanding a customer’s business and how our technology can be deployed to deliver maximum value. This role is about being the bridge between multiple spheres of knowledge; Deployment Leads spearhead a team of data analysts, engineers and data scientists to solve the most challenging problems being faced by the insurance industry.

Creativity and tact are key to delivering successful deployments to Cytora customers. And commercial nous is imperative for picking up on the key cues that feed product development ideas and uncover future problems to solve.

What working as a Deployment Lead at Cytora looks like

Our customers come to us with an intuition that a data-driven, empirical view of the world will grow their business, or turn around a failing market segment. You will be working to understand these views, the reasons behind them and using world-leading technology to deliver solutions.

Your working days at Cytora begin with a stand up to synchronise efforts across the team, informed by Objectives and Key Results set with the whole company. In fortnightly one on ones with your line manager you will gain in-depth feedback on performance and map out areas for targeted personal development.

Deployment Leads work with the leaders of our customers’ organisations to understand the strategic landscape of how they use data and with the actuaries, risk engineers, underwriters and database managers to get up and running with Cytora. Your objective is to take the topography of the land and strategise how to best implement Cytora’s Risk Engine.

You will figure out how to maximise the impact delivered to our customers over time: tracking and stabilising projects, removing roadblocks, and anticipating customer needs are critical to ensuring that our data science and engineering teams can get their job done.

What we're looking for

The role is versatile in nature, so we hire people who learn fast. Deployment Leads must be able to think quickly, communicate clearly and exercise pragmatic decision making.

We are looking for candidates with:

- Analytical skills to find answers in complex data
- Leadership skills to make fundamental decisions that drive the direction of a project
- Exceptional abstract problem solving and communication skills
- The ability to operate at the micro and macro level of detail; maintaining a bird's eye view of the project while executing with precision
- The energy and vision to motivate their colleagues when times are tough and build the company culture
- The ability to be highly adaptable and work in environments with high levels of ambiguity
- A technical background and passion for organising and building things

What we offer

You’ll be offered a competitive salary and share options, augmented by our private health insurance. To ensure continued professional development we offer an excellent desk budget as well as exposure to world leading experts in multiple fields, including risk modelling, technology (our advisory board has two Cambridge professors and multiple industry experts).

Our conference budget allows us to network with our peers and present our work at industry and academic conferences. These learning opportunities continue through internal knowledge-sharing activities, such as our AI reading group, study sessions and regular talks across the team.

Besides the constant learning opportunities, Cytora is a great place to form new friendships and be exposed to diverse experiences. We host regular social events and take an annual company holiday together (we have been to Barcelona and Sicily in the past 2 years).
