About Marshmallow We started Marshmallow when we found out how unfair insurance prices are for people who move to the UK. We saw an opportunity to do things differently, so we made it our mission to back the ones who step outside the norm. We serve people that are often overlooked by financial services companies, solving important problems for people who need it most.

The Role We’re looking for a Data Scientist to help us push our acquisition and retention tribes to the next level. You will be improving how we present and price our different products when new customers are signing up, and working on how we can retain those customers for longer to drive up retention. You will work within a cross-functional team and become an expert in your area.

Job Requirements You have a commercial mindset, focused on delivering impact to the business as quickly as possible. You can communicate clearly with people of all technical levels and disciplines. You have experience building future-proof data models and analytics products, driving business action and impact from data-driven insights, and developing ML models to answer business cases. You have strong coding ability in Python, SQL and the ability to manipulate large data sets. You have at least 1-2 years commercial experience.

Benefits We offer a flexi-office working environment, flexible benefits budget, personal budgets for books and training courses, mental wellbeing support, equity, private health care, medical cash plan, tech scheme, 33 days holiday (including bank holidays), pension, cycle to work scheme, monthly team socials and company-wide socials every month!

Application Details Our process is broken up into 3 stages: Initial call with Luke, our Talent Acquisition Partner (45 mins), a previous experience interview with Paul, our Head of Data Science (45 minutes), a technical interview with one of our Senior Data Scientists (1 hr), and a culture interview with a bar raiser (1 hour).
