  • You have experience in the calculation of technical reserves (RRC / SONR / OPC) and/or in the operation of reinsurance contracts
  • You have helped design and document technical insurance products
  • You really like to collaborate and you can communicate technical concepts in a clear and structured way

Bonus points if:

  • You are passionate about the impact of technology and design on health insurance
  • You have a strong interest in automating processes and modeling using code
  • You are interested in developing technical skills in statistical learning and machine learning

  • Sofía’s Health Plan
  • Stock Option Plan
  • 20 flexible vacation days per year + official holidays
  • A driven and talented team that will challenge you to go further every day
