Job Description

We are currently recruiting for an integral Data Scientist position in our UK Consumer Information team. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a small but extremely capable data science unit within Experian who have recently developed a brand-new product.

No-Questions-Asked (NQA) is a new Experian product that provides loss models to home insurers so they can quote for home insurance based on just the address of the property.  NQA is powered by a dataset of 250 good quality property attributes which are prepared by the NQA team. The modelling is conducted in R and published via an Azure-hosted API.

You will be responsible for developing and automating the data preparation processes for NQA, along with rebuilding and creating new loss models for customers. This will ensure the innovation of NQA and help the product achieve great success within the Insurance world.

Working closely with your team, you will blend a knowledge of modelling and coding with fantastic communication skills to liaise with customers about the technical aspects of the models that you are building for them.

This is an exceptional role for a talented individual with a strong Data Science background to play a key part in an exciting new area of the Experian business!


We’re looking for someone with a proven Data Science background with developed skills using programming languages such as R.

We’re after a team player with strong communication skills, who enjoys problem solving and has a keen eye for identifying errors and resolving issues. You will ideally have a desire to develop your skills and knowledge and help drive innovation forward within Experian.

It would be great if you have experience in feature engineering and developing inputs for modelling.

Everyone has different experience, and so please don’t rule yourself out if you cannot ‘tick’ all of the qualities mentioned above. Talk to us about the experience that you do have.
