We’re never just satisfied with how things are – because we know how things could be. And it’s our expert Technology team who forge ahead every day to make those ‘what ifs’ a reality.

Suncorp places great importance on leveraging its data to enhance business performance, with the Data Science & AI Centre of Excellence dedicated to optimizing the value derived from data investments.

As a Senior Data Scientist at Suncorp, the focus lies on assuming a pivotal technical role in driving the design and implementation of complex Data Science and AI projects aimed at delivering substantial business value.

Additionally, the role carries significant accountability in championing best practice methodologies within the Data Science & AI community, acting as a recognized thought leader, and effectively communicating with key stakeholders to drive impactful outcomes.

  • Bringing in cutting-edge external Data Science and AI concepts, effective communication across technical and executive audiences, and active participation in industry forums
  • Solving business problems through innovative technical solutions, collaborating with senior stakeholders, and ensuring deployment and scalability of solutions
  • Building strong relationships with senior stakeholders, showcasing value through presentations and prototypes, and illustrating potential impact across the organization
  • Providing insight into emerging AI trends, offering counsel to the Data Science technical job family, and contributing to the Group's Data Science strategy
  • Cultivating a significant industry network, engaging in relevant industry forums, and contributing to the broader Data Science community
  • Measuring success through tangible improvements such as revenue increase, cost reduction, enhanced customer satisfaction, and decreased complaints, while fostering excellence across all initiatives

What You’ll Bring

  • 7+ years of experience in Data Science, AI, or closely related disciplines, demonstrating practical expertise and proficiency in the field
  • Bachelor's Degree in a technical field (data science, machine learning, statistics, actuarial, engineering, mathematics, etc.) (mandatory)

  • Knowledge of Generative AI and experience in developing proof-of-concepts or building prototypes using GenAI is desirable
  • Proficiency in Python programming and expertise in developing and optimizing ML pipelines are mandatory qualifications
  • Thorough understanding of Machine Learning algorithms and deep neural networks is mandatory
  • Proven track record of successfully productionizing Data Science solutions and familiarity with advanced tools and technologies such as Databricks and Generative AI

What We Can Offer
