Business Analysis

We love math. Do you?

Love math? Do you dream algorithms? Do pivot tables make your heart pump faster?

You know who you are. Welcome home.

We're an insurance company. We love—simply love—math.

And there's no better way to apply a love of math than to be in an analytical role at Progressive.

Our analysts are key players in every part of the business, from corporate accounting to claims forecasting to product development.

We. Analyze. Everything.

Our analysts “see the future.” They model, they forecast, they even predict catastrophic events. They make our products—and our status as an industry leader—even stronger.

Math = Power

This place is crawling with math lovers. They benefit from a peer-run professional group that supports career development … and their love of math.

Roles include data analysts, pricing analysts, product analysts, accountants, actuaries, data scientists, marketing process analysts, and R&D analysts

I love that I am given the chance to expand beyond the traditional analyst role and stretch into new areas as I feel I’m ready for a new challenge.

Pawan:
[Voice Over] Insurance data can be a lot of fun, especially if you just take the insurance part out of it and just look at it for what it is, which is real customer data, real experiences that customers are having, and you just dive into it and see what new insights you can find out.

Pawan:
...you can come, you can exercise your curiosity, and we respect that. When we see folks who have kind of gone down a path of like the road less travelled and come up with new things, we love to hire those types of people, who are sort of self-motivated.

Pawan:
We have many, many, exciting opportunities around data and analytics that maybe most people would not think of, uh, when they're looking from the outside in. And day-in and day-out we have analysts and managers and others who are constantly looking at data and making sense of it. We have R & D analyst positions, then we have the position of a data scientist, which is sort of new and emerging, and it's a confluence of folks who can do statistics, programming and have achieved some business domain knowledge in a certain area. We also have IT roles that help people move data from place A to place B. We have Data Visualization type of work now, and then just straight-up programming, um, to share your results across a wide variety of groups.
