The Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (CDSAi) is the innovative corporate Analytics group within New York Life. We are a rapidly growing entrepreneurial department which aims to design, create and offer innovative data-driven solutions for many parts of the enterprise. We are aided by New York Life's existing business with a large market share in individual life insurance. We have the freedom to explore external data sources, new statistical techniques, and are excited about delivering a whole new generation of predictive analytics and artificial intelligence solutions.

In fact, we are building one of the first multivariate model-based continuous risk differentiations in the industry. We are also working on models for differentiated advertising allocation by geography, channel and segment. Geographic analytics on agents and customers, application fraud detection, agent success prediction and client prospecting analytics (off-line and on-line) are other exciting examples of enormous incremental value from analytics. Our products are implemented into real-time core business processes and decisions that drive the company (e.g. underwriting, pricing, agent recruiting, prospecting, advertising allocation, new product development).

We work with data ranging from demographics, credit and geo data to detailed medical data (medical test results, diagnosis, prescriptions) and social media information. We have a modern computing environment with a solid suite of data science/modeling tools and packages, and a large (but manageable) group of well-trained professionals at various levels to support you. Life insurance is on the verge of huge change. This is a chance to drive the transformation of an industry.

You will apply your communications skills working closely with business partners, data scientists, data engineers and technical implementation teams across the company to establish model monitoring and reporting plans.

You will help to establish a scalable monitoring and reporting capability for the data science team and our business partners using various programs, libraries and visualization tools to monitor and report on a wide variety of model types.
