Job Description

QuanTemplate's mission is to revolutionise the way the insurance industry processes data. The industry is hampered by data challenges and QuanTemplate are here to help. There is a desire to consume, analyse, process, enrich and extract data at a very fine level of granularity, but companies rarely have the systems in place to deliver on these objectives. The QuanTemplate platform changes that: we have the toolset, we have the framework and the industry is responding to it. QuanTemplate employ best-in-class individuals to meet the needs of our expanding client base. We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join the Client Solutions team, responsible for providing innovative technical solutions to existing and potential clients. This is an exciting opportunity to join a small company with global reach and help shape its future. The role of a Solution Architect is varied and broad, it presents the successful candidate with the opportunity to become an integral part of the QuanTemplate team. Key responsibilities are providing pre-sales technical support, managing and running Proof of Concepts with potential clients, onboarding new clients and supporting existing ones. Our footprint is global and whilst the business is predominantly based in the UK our clients are not—we would like to more closely support our US client base with local expertise. The successful candidate will likely have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a statistical or mathematical discipline and will:
