Solaria Labs was created with one simple mandate: to create new products and services that make a better, safer future for us all. Backed by Liberty Mutual, a Fortune 100 insurance company, Solaria Labs started in 2015 and recently expanded its operations to Singapore in June 2017. In its 3 years, the team has launched products such as:
(1) All Set, a platform which connects users with quality home-service providers.
(2) Total Home Score, a data service which helps home buyers, renters, and real-estate professionals understand a home's complete value by calculating scores related to surrounding noise and road quality.
(3) GigUp, a platform that matches gig workers with flexible jobs tailored to their skills and schedule
We believe that insurance is an industry that is evolving quickly, making it ripe for disruption. By research emerging trends and technologies, ranging from self-driving vehicles, the sharing economy, and the connected life, we have seen a large opportunity for us to enable proactive protection of our customers, allowing them to live their lives with less worry.
As an innovation lab, we believe in taking risks, working quickly, and taking a test-and-learn approach to build our products. Most importantly, we base our ideas on real consumer data and interactions. That could mean drawing from the troves of proprietary learnings at Liberty Mutual Insurance or conducting in-depth customer interviews. Throughout, we make a point of being as customer-centric as possible. And that shows in the relevance and impact of the things we create.
Solaria Labs is an innovation center focused on disrupting the traditional insurance model and diversifying into new products and sectors including the Gig Economy, Connected Life, On-Demand Mobility, Modern Aging, and Cybersecurity. Founded by Liberty Mutual, a global insurance company based in the US, we have been successfully launching new products and spinning out new companies for over 2 years in Boston and have just launched our new lab in Singapore. We are looking for innovators who are entrepreneurial, passionate about driving impact, and willing to test and learn.
As a Data Engineer in Solaria Labs, you will support research and development efforts in a diverse set of challenges as we rapidly prototype and build new products. Many of the concepts we develop require novel use of Liberty Mutual and partner data, and the application of current and emerging machine learning techniques. You will interact with product and engineering teams to implement your solutions within internal and customer-facing software products.
