Vacancy: Technical Marketing Actuary

Team: Technical Marketing: Discovery Health and Vitality
Turn over if you want to see the “Core Role”, “Required Competencies”, the all-important “Qualifications and Experience” and other sentences with the word candidate.
Bottom line is this, though.
We need someone smart.
Really smart.
Smart enough to analyse data. And smart enough to get the same results using the back-of-the-envelope.
Smart enough to tell normal people about those results. In English. And occasionally using pictures.
Smart enough to see the wood for the trees. And estimate the expected yield from it.
Smart enough to know when Google is wrong.
And smart enough to know when we are wrong.
Being a bit of fun also helps. As does being OCD and knowing how to get to Gold on Vitality.
Smiling? Then let us know you are interested, and we’ll get our people to speak to your people.
