Product Manager

We're recruiting for a Product Manager to join a global insurance firm within their reinsurance division.

Your remit will be to own the product and feature roadmap for an analytical modelling solution which is productised and sold to brokers as a technology solution to what is traditionally very much a manual task.

A big emphasis of this tools' capability will be things like catastrophe modelling for use by brokers when assessing risks and premiums. Currently those brokers take a very manual approach which takes a lot of time. This solution is looking to reduce that through leveraging the firm's own massive analytical modelling capabilities converted into a technology led product solution.

The company you will be joining creates these analytical models for a wide range of catastrophe scenarios - you will be looking to productise these, and advise the business on what direction the analytical modelling market is moving towards within the reinsurance markets.

So taking account of the trends and changes, identifying what the future needs of brokers will be and converting this into a product feature roadmap, ensuring this remains a viable and market leading solution. Working with the internal business functions to align their workflows and projects to achieve this roadmap.

This is an Agile environment and so having experience of Scrums and Agile methodologies will be of a significant benefit. As the Product Owner, you will be collating requirements, identifying priorities and feeding those into Scrum unifying the analytics functions by setting priorities for their business direction.

Your stakeholder network will be global, since this is an international business, so polished matrix stakeholder management skills will be a high priority too.

Key responsibilities:

  • Work with Business Leaders to identify immediate and long terms priorities and opportunities across the Reinsurance Data and Analytics Space
  • Review existing application space and roadmaps with a view to defining the future application strategy.
  • Work with technology teams to ensure that application deliveries align with the business analytics goals.
  • Help define a step change in thinking of how analytics data is captured, processed, fed back and maintained for long term usage across the organisation.
  • Set policies, standards and guidelines for Analytics and work closely with Reinsurance technology programmes to ensure they are in compliance.
  • Define a roadmap that supports the long term analytics deliver for clients and business alike.
  • Work with Platform Architect and Technology teams to define the long term analytics processing capabilities.
  • Understand new innovations in analysis and how it can be applied beneficially to Reinsurance Analytics.
