About FloodFlash

FloodFlash is an insurance startup, created to help the millions of home and business owners around the world that can’t get access to affordable flood cover. We offer ‘event-based’ insurance, where a settlement is based on the occurrence of a flood, rather than the damage that it causes. Backed by great VC investors who share our vision for the growth and impact of this kind of insurance, we are just over two years old. Our small team is passionate and friendly. We offer a flexible working environment where we value each other’s skills and trust and help our colleagues to deliver against their goals.

Role

We are looking for a Catastrophe Risk Analyst to join our team. You will work with various sources of data (open and proprietary) to enhance our view of flood risk, enabling more accurate pricing and wider availability of affordable flood insurance.

Analytics are at the heart of the company, playing a key role in our approach to risk pricing, claims, strategic growth and development into new markets. Our vision brings together diverse fields such as the Internet of Things, machine learning, catastrophe modelling, and smart contracts, to support a seamless insurance product.

As an early employee, you will have the opportunity to grow with the role and shape the development of our technical capabilities. Working in a small team, you will also be expected to be able to work independently to deliver clear and justified insights and solutions to complex problems.

Ideally, you will have a couple of years of commercial experience, and knowledge relating to some (by no means all) of the following:

  • Using data-driven approaches to solve real-world problems
  • Identifying and evaluating data from multiple sources
  • Hydrology and/or flood risk modelling
  • Catastrophe risk and insurance pricing
  • Scientific programming in languages such as Python and R
  • Databases and SQL
  • Geospatial data analysis and GIS tools (e.g. QGIS, PostGIS, ArcMap)

Our benefits package includes a share option scheme for all team members, 25 days' holiday each year (as well as the bank holidays), flexible working, lovely office and a fantastic team around you all striving for the same goals.
