About the Role


The future is closer than you think. The rapidly evolving world of autonomous cars, drones, unmanned trains and whatever visionaries like Elon Musk next come up with, all have the potential to hugely disrupt Casualty portfolios.


By 2050, many predict that nearly every car will be driverless. Given the important part motor plays in our portfolio, should we be excited about driverless technology? What are the benefits and risks? How will this affect our clients' portfolios? How will claims be handled? Which markets will lead, which will lag? What role will telematics play? And how do we transition?


As Platform Engineer you will be part of the SmartClaims team, with the goal to drive technological developments that we hope can help transform the re/insurance industry.


You are comfortable of wearing both the architect's and the developer's hat. You are familiar with technology and cloud design patterns as much as you are with its culture and business models. You have gained experience in several cloud projects and have deployed at least one cloud-based application of relevant size to production. You know what is possible today and keep an eye of what is brewing in the scene, so you have your idea what may become possible soon as well. You have a deep under-standing of event driven, horizontal and message-oriented architectures
