About the Team

At Swiss Re we embarked on a journey to become a true Tech and Data driven company. 'Solutions' is a central pillar of the reinsurance strategy, critical both to development of our core activities as well as developing new revenue streams for Swiss Re. There is an opportunity to use our risk knowledge and capital to create new shareholder value for us through Solutions, which should lead to valuation uplift.

Our ambition is to move to the next level in terms of scale and integrity, fully deploying Swiss Re’s risk knowledge to a wider group of clients.

A great opportunity to join our high-performing global IT team focused on developing and launching innovative Data Analytics solutions using the state-of-the-art data analytics platform that enables big data processing, effective monitoring and steering of business.
