Our team missions & drivers

We simplify complexity

Real world problems can be infinitely challenging. We strive to ensure that the complexity we bring to our models makes sense and provides benefits to the end user. This desire for simplification is the reason why we place a strong emphasis on explaining our job simply to the other teams at Akur8.

We strive for improvement every day

Once a feature is built, we are never satisfied with its status and we continually investigate bottlenecks and limitations as they arise to make it more and more efficient.

Machine Learning is a tool for humans

We believe that Machine Learning empowers humans and does not replace them. In the same way that a truck allows workers to carry more loads, Machine Learning allows actuaries to process more data and generate models with a higher predictive power. Our solution empowers actuaries to go 10x faster and to be more accurate at each step of the pricing process.

Yi-Jen, Data Scientist

Depending on where you are, being a Data Scientist (DS) can mean a great many things. At Akur8, this title indicates something that goes far beyond helping our clients to build data-driven predictive models. As an AI-powered software startup, we create our own math frameworks and code repos. It is this craftsmanship I love about my role!

Giovanni, Data Scientist

I love working with an international team of brilliant and open-minded people, always ready to challenge the status quo. Additionally, I love seeing the impact of my daily work and how this helps improve our software and reach the company's goals.

Ludovico, Lead Data Scientist

At Akur8, everything moves fast. There is space to make an impact and to learn about a lot of different topics. On any given day I may be working on understanding client needs, cloud infrastructure or cold hard math. It is always interesting and never boring.

Raphael, Data Scientist

The variety of topics tackled from client-facing projects to research is really challenging. The day-to-day impact is visible and it brings satidfaction to see the features I've been involved in being used by clients. Additionally, the team here at Akur8 is really friendly and competent, so you'll always find someone willing to help you!

Michael, Data Scientist

At Akur8, you are always intellectually stimulated: not a single day goes by without facing and solving problems, and learning through it. Work is also highly versatile: from mathematical research to client facing projects to pure development (which itself is hugely diverse). As a team member you are also very independent, are trusted and have the freedom to organize yourself the way you want.

Yazid, Data Scientist

I love being a Data Scientist at Akur8 for two main reasons: first, I have a tangible impact on the product by doing mathematical research, implementing new features, and demonstrating the value of the product to clients. Second, I have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from all departments, which is enriching and fun!

Aymon, Senior Data Scientist

I love that I can work on a variety of topics from math to programming to creating models with clients. I get to work on ambitious features for our cutting-edge product, and I can see the direct impact I'm having at all company levels.

Julien, Data Scientist

At Akur8, I love the diversity of topics and assignments, which allow me to use and develop my skills in mathematics, computer science, as well as client enagement. The team atmosphere is collaborative and trusting, and drives us forward to face new challenges. Work feels impactful and rewarding!

Arun, Lead Data Scientist

What I particularly enjoy working at Akur8 is seeing a feature I implemented being used by clients to solve real-world problems, and getting their feedback. I also love working with clients to understand their pain points during a pilot and then to propose solutions. Being part of a team of people who are good at their jobs and have a collaborative mindset - that's what excites and drives me each day.

A day in our team...

We build a technical product for technical people. This requires us to both develop highly complex features, and check that the product makes sense overall. 60% of the day is dedicated to coding, 30% to understanding the business needs via demo, product discssion, etc., ... and 10% to make sure our solution remains state of the art!
