Lead Cloud Engineer (ICT_TECH E49)

Closing date
11 Jun 2022
Our industry is currently experiencing unprecedented innovation thanks to advances in big-data analytics, distributed super-computing and real-time cloud services. Willis Towers Watson continuously strives to be at the forefront of this revolution with its Insurance Consulting and Technology (ICT) business. Now is therefore the perfect opportunity to become part of ICT and join a global and growing organisation. We are developing world-class leading-edge risk analytics solutions and financial modelling software which enables over 1,000 major insurance clients worldwide as well as many of the largest financial services companies.

How do insurance companies manage risks when the future is unpredictable? How do they ensure they have enough resources to cover potential losses and prepare for various uncertainties? The answer is to develop financial models using our world leading modelling software. These models are time critical but computationally very intensive requiring huge amounts of compute power and may generate terabytes of data, and so every bit of performance and optimisations count.
