Lead Actuary / Product Manager (Life Insurance Software)
What we do
Montoux makes complex financial modelling software user friendly. We’re currently revolutionizing the way the insurance industry develops and prices products by streamlining actuarial modelling on our cloud platform.
With a number of prominent customers already on board and our first beta customer in the U.S. about to sign, we are rapidly expanding our business in the U.S., driven by our desire to be the number one choice for actuarial pricing modelling software worldwide.
This role will be one of the first hires in the U.S. and will play a prominent role in turning Montoux into a wildly successful global business. If you want the opportunity to work with a company that has the dream and real possibility of making a substantial difference to how insurance carriers analyze and price their products, we want to speak to you.
What you will be doing
Your main purpose will be to contribute insight into current pricing practices with a view on how they can be improved. Your experience using existing pricing software tools is important, but more important is your desire to improve those and make a real difference to the way insurance companies price their products.
