In a large enterprise of talented data scientists, how do you lift all ships and help us all to do better?

You are the kind of scientist who puts integrity first. You want to help an entire enterprise succeed.

We are the Office of Data Science in Liberty Mutual, a central group whose mandate is to make it easy for our DS talent to excel across all markets. We help build advanced AI solutions, create a culture of learning and collaboration, and curate an ecosystem of tools used by all our scientists.
