Career opportunities at The Center for Data Science and Analytics.
As the centralized Data Science team for New York Life, the mission of the company’s Center for Data Science and Analytics (CDSA) is to bring creative, analytical, and methodologically sound data-driven solutions to all areas of the company.
With more than 170 years of customer and business insights, our data is complex, and highly varied. It ranges from detailed medical, underwriting, financial suitability, geospatial, social media, demographic, and transactional data. We continually test new data sources to further enrich our data for stronger analyses.
The CDSA team is diverse, with colleagues coming from many industries, not only insurance. Team members have backgrounds in statistics, bio statistics, actuarial science, engineering, information systems, and computer science, and bring with them proven track records of making a difference.

It does this by influencing the decisions made at all key points of the product development, marketing, and servicing lifecycles, and delivers solutions that make significant impacts on both our business and our clients.
Through the collaborations with our business partners, CDSA team members learn key aspects of the different business areas and ensure that the models are successfully integrated to effect measurable improvements. Some current selected projects include:
- Optimizing advertising spend.
- Assessing predictive value of new medical tests.
- Developing AI chat bots to aid our service representatives.
