Being part of the DSEP at Verisk has been the perfect way to start my career in data science. The program provides great support – I’ve had access to an international network of data scientists and regular training, which has really expanded my data science knowledge. Also, the program is rotational, which is a great way to see how data science is used across the business.

I joined Verisk as an intern in 2020 summer. It was then that I realized why Verisk is a great place to work. After the internship, I directly signed a full-time DSEP job offer. During my DSEP rotations, I work for the Insurance Analytics team on property and auto insurance projects. Here, I not only learn the most cutting-edge data analysis technology knowledge but also have the opportunity to receive training on project management for becoming a future leader. I love DSEP because everyone here notices you, cares about your personal development, and is willing to share and help.
