⭐️ The Insurance team

The insurance team brings technical leadership and expertise; it influences all Alan’s strategic decisions. In the insurance team, we work hand in hand with the rest of the company (designers, engineers, data scientists, product managers, finance, operations) to build the most differentiating products. We support the sales and account management teams on offers for large companies. We also make sure the business is properly monitored and risks are under control. Finally, we help the rest of the team understand the subtleties of healthcare.

Since we opened our Belgium market in 2020, we have experienced great momentum and traction. Our local team is growing (so far we went from 0 to 25+ in just over a year 🚀) We now want to take the market by storm and exponentially grow the business to ultimately become one of the market leaders, this Health Product Actuary role will be instrumental in our strategy.

Joining the Alan insurance team means joining a human scale team where you will have a tremendous impact on what we build and how we organise ourselves; We move fast, with a lot of ownership, and are proud to tackle big problems!

If we expect people to bring specific expertise to Alan, we also encourage them to grow on other topics of the insurance community, not necessarily related to their initial expertise.
