Head of Insurance - FinTech startup

Competitive base salary + bonus + potential share options

Location: United Kingdom Type: Permanent

Head of Insurance - FinTech startup

 

My client is a rapidly growing FinTech startup founded by well-known names in the industry.  They deliver a cloud-based, end-to-end development and production platform bringing the architectural model of investment bank systems to a broad enterprise audience.  With their open architecture, transparent source code, and automated infrastructure solutions, clients can build in-house functionality on a platform that has been proven at some of the largest financial institutions in the world. They give financial and quantitative developers the tools they need so that they can focus on the business and deliver fully integrated applications for analytics, pricing, risk management for the business.

 

Due to business expansion, they are looking to hire a “Producer Manager" to lead their Insurance Practice. The ideal candidate will be a senior Financial or Quant Developer with experience working on the asset side of life insurance companies, asset/liability management calculations, capital reserve calculations, and familiarity with accounting practices for bonds and derivatives in life insurance portfolios.  This person will come from a Python coding background and is someone who can implement functionality but has management experience.  The ideal candidate will have strong communication skills and commercial focus, as the position involves running a business line front to back and managing a team of 10 – 20 Developers/Quants.

 

This is an exciting opportunity for a strong, commercially minded Technologist with experience of managing teams who wants to be part of and lead a business at an early stage of their growth.  This is for someone who would like to move away from the corporate, bureaucratic culture of investment banks to a friendly, open, flat organization, hugely valuing technical talent, where developers make a significant technical and commercial contribution. Technology is the core of their business, so every technical contribution is inherently commercial and that gets expressed in how they run their business. For example, the CEO is both the core architect and technical leader but at the same time the commercial business leader.

 

Required skills and experience:

 

  • Experience of working on the asset side of life insurance companies, asset/liability management calculations, capital reserve calculations, and familiarity with accounting practices for bonds and derivatives in life insurance portfolios
  • Hands on programming skills in Python (or similar language)
  • 8+ years’ experience in professional environment – used to leading teams of developers/Quants Developers
  • Commercially minded with strong communication skills
  • Securitized product experience desirable
  • An advanced degree in a quantitative subject such as Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Physics
