About Swiss Re

Swiss Re is one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, insurance and other forms of insurance-based risk transfer, working to make the world more resilient. We anticipate and manage a wide variety of risks, from natural catastrophes and climate change to cybercrime.

At Swiss Re we combine experience with creative thinking and cutting-edge expertise to create new opportunities and solutions for our clients. This is possible thanks to the collaboration of our 15,000 employees across the world.

We offer a flexible working environment where curious and adaptable people thrive. Are you interested in joining us?


About the Role


You will be part of a larger legal-tech initiative at Swiss Re, which is being executed by the Digital and Smart Analytics Solutions Documents squad. You will act as a linguistic specialist and power-user of a best-in-class linguistic rule-writing tool called Cogito Studio by Expert.ai.

Are you ready for a new opportunity?


  • Together with your colleagues, you will work on the development and curation of domain-specific ontologies and rule bases
  • You will develop linguistic rules for the customised extraction of information or classification of documents.
  • You consult the team and colleagues on how to build, maintain and use taxonomies over their life-cycle for our projects.


About You


Are you the one we are looking for?


  • You have a degree in computational linguistics, mathematics or related field and a deep understanding of language analysis (morphology, syntax, semantics) and at least 2 years of experience in the field
  • You have basic programming skills (preferably Python) to write data processing scripts to transform or extract knowledge from unstructured data, including hands-on experience with regular expressions.
  • Curious and interested in learning new things
  • Energised to exchange with subject mater experts on a periodic basis and to articulate their requirements into workable actions.
  • Strong command of English language (both oral and written).
  • Experience in project management comes as a plus.
  • Knowledge in the legal-tech area comes as a plus.


Behavioural Competences:


  • You are a great teammate with a ‘can do’ attitude and you like to work in an interdisciplinary and multi-cultural environment. As a matter of trust, we offer you a high degree of flexibility which matches your independent working style.
  • You are creative and want to bring in your own ideas to push product development further.
  • Working on multiple assignments in parallel doesn't prevent you from delivering high quality work and meeting deadlines.
  • If you think that you bring the right knowledge, experience and personality for this job opportunity and for our team, we would love to hear from you!


Minimum base salary for this job is from 1700 EUR gross/month/full time. Our offer to you may be higher based on your skills and experience and will include additional rewards and benefits. *

We carefully consider your professional competencies, qualifications and experience in our compensation package and/or when offering you other positions. Our compensation philosophy is to pay fairly, also considering market situation and the value employees may bring to Swiss Re. 


We are an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. Our aim is to live visible and invisible diversity – diversity of age, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, physical abilities, personalities and experiences – at all levels and in all functions and regions. We also collaborate in a flexible working environment, providing you with a compelling degree of autonomy to decide how, when and where to carry out your tasks.
