Remote Data Science and Data Analyst Jobs

Senior Analytics Engineer

Zego - UK
Posted: 3 months ago

We’re a commercial motor insurer on a mission to save people time and money. From nationwide taxi fleets to self-employed scooter delivery riders, our customers are our driving force. We work hard to make insurance simple, affordable and stress-free for every one of them.

When we started back in 2016, we knew that traditional insurance held businesses back. It was too complicated, too time consuming, and it wasn't priced fairly. So we set out to change that, building insurance products to empower professional drivers throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.

So far, we’ve raised over $200 million in funding, and we’re proud to hold the title of the UK’s first insurtech Unicorn (a private company valued at over $1 billion). We’ve grown from a scrappy start-up into an industry changing organisation. And there’s plenty more to come.

How we work

We believe that teams work better when they have time to collaborate and space to get things done. We call it Zego Hybrid.

It’s not “hybrid working” as you might know it – we don’t ask you to work from the office on set days. It’s a flexible approach that allows every Zegon to be their best.

Home can still be your primary place of work, with team days and events at our central London office when we need to get together. We cover the costs for all company-wide events (3 per year), and provide a separate hybrid contribution to help pay towards travel costs for our monthly pizza socials and other team get-togethers.

We think it’s a good mix of collaborative face time and flexible home-working, setting us up to achieve that right balance between work and life.

The BI team’s mission is simple: relevant and reliable information, aimed at the right people, and delivered at the right time. We facilitate rapid and effective decision making that is supported by excellent data. We’re a small and dynamic team, responsible for every aspect of data: delivery, integrity, ETL, problem formulation, metric definition, reporting, and analytics.
