DKV is part of the international Munich Re Group, one of the world's largest reinsurers. Working for DKV means working for the Belgian market leader in private health insurance.
It also means striving for values such as customer and result orientation, integrity and involvement (organisational commitment). We are building an open and inclusive corporate culture based on trust, teamwork, transformational leadership and a sense of initiative.
Together, we put these values into practice every day to further strengthen the trust of our two million policyholders.
Do you want to be the person who helped transforming a large company by doing magic with its data? Are you not afraid to explore the next frontier and to boldly move in that direction before the rest of the company may see the sense of it? Can you consistently stay within the lines drawn up by regulation and protect the continuity of our data science function, and that of our company? Can you establish seamless, end-to-end collaboration between data scientists and your internal customer so that data science makes it into the standard way of working? Basically, are you the magician who can enable business revolution?
If yes, then we would love to talk to you on our open position of Data Scientist. We do ask a special combination of skills:
We are looking for an experienced data scientist with several years under his/her belt (and a PhD is a plus). You are preferably a generalist rather than a specialist, because of the limited size of our current team. If you are a specialist, don’t worry, just be happy to work on new data science disciplines. Max. 1 day per week, you will act as Business Partner. You must therefore be able to relate to business people and be willing to provide their needed insights. This means you also have to master SQL, PowerBI and good-old excel (or learn before you onboard).
We are also looking for some specific behavioral competencies: you are self-starter; you work well with little supervision, but you know exactly when to check in with your superior and/or when to ask for help. You have experience with working on projects, preferably as workstream or project leader, so you are used to set targets, deliver on time, document your codes and results properly, provide clear reports (in writing and orally) on status and issues, and you know how to interact with stakeholders at various levels (experience with senior management is a plus). Due to your work experience, you are able to deliver flawless work. You have a natural sense on how to check the quality of your work and where your work (or that of others) has weak points. You know when to ask for peer reviews and you are not afraid to ask it. You work by default in a structured and systematic manner.
Finally, it is important for us that you are intrigued about insurances and healthcare data, and that you are highly curious on how to get its values extracted. You are keen to work on healthcare insurance projects, for example: prediction of diagnoses based on the medical treatments of patients; prediction of claims volume evolutions to be used to optimize resource planning; text mining to isolate and cluster relevant free text comments to be used to further automate processing; mining data to prove why our customers stop their insurance and prediction of who has a higher chance to leave next; unravelling customer segments who would respond differently to cross selling and up selling of our products or to new product and service offering altogether.
At DKV we offer you a varied job with growing opportunities (thanks to trainings, coaching, projects and internal mobility) and all this in the heart of Brussels (close to the Grand Place and the central station).
Besides a competitive gross salary, we offer an extensive standard package of extra-legal benefits:
- year-end premium (13th month)
- competitive insurance package (hospitalization insurance, ambulatory insurance, guaranteed income insurance and pension plan)
- discount on DKV insurance products
- free public transport
- company restaurant
- meal vouchers
- eco cheques
- gift voucher
- collective company premium (CLA 90)
- internet allowance
- homeworking allowance
Moreover, you can also count on an attractive leave scheme (at least 31 days), flexible working hours and the possibility to homework up to three days a week. This way of hybrid working guarantees you a good balance between work and your private life.
We are an equal opportunity employer. All aspects of employment are based solely on performance, competence, conduct, or business needs. If you require any support or access requirements, we encourage you to advise us at the time of your application so that we can make any reasonable adjustments needed to support you through your recruitment journey.
