We are committed to the rigorous development and effective deployment of modern statistical machine learning methods to problems in the insurance industry. One of our core data science challenges is understanding driving behavior from smartphone sensor data. Dealing with the flood of sensor data requires us to build large-scale systems that ride the big data wave rather than being submerged by it. There is no shortage of computational and statistical challenges to tackle. In addition to telematics risk-scoring, the Data Science team works on core problems in pricing model development, reserving methodology, marketing, and strategic business forecasts. Root is looking for an experienced Senior Data Scientist to help drive the future of our team. This includes taking high-level business challenges, translating them into a concrete, quantitative framework, and shepherding solutions from R&D into production.
