Job Description :

Hiscox is currently seeking a SQL, VBA & ETL developer to join our Reserving Data & Systems team, the role reports into the IT organisation but will be predominantly working for the Actuarial Reserving Team.

The role will help support existing operational systems as well as contribute to the Reserving Team’s strategic projects ensuring they are transitioned into BAU.

You will be responsible for supporting business critical systems as well as eliciting requirements, developing, unit testing & deploying new solutions and enhancements to existing systems.

There may also be innovation opportunities and proofs of concept.

The role while needing strong developer skills does have a significant support aspect to it. Therefore this role will need to work a different work pattern to the core team (based in London) to accommodate this.

As the Reserving application portfolio matures an openness to learn new technologies and programming languages may be required e.g. C#, R, Alteryx.

Experience in the Insurance sector especially London Market & Specialist Insurance will be a nice to have but not essential.
