Business Analyst- iMMerse Program 2021

immerse is a two-year experience based out of MassMutual’s Boston office, open to fresh graduates interested in building a strong foundation across three interrelated disciplines with flexibility to pursue a range of compelling future leadership opportunities. The position is an analyst position working in our Corporate Strategy Group and would begin in July 2021.

MassMutual is a leading consumer financial services company with an enduring, dynamic footprint in insurance, asset management, and retirement. A mutually owned company ranked No. 89 on the 2020 FORTUNE 500® list, MassMutual’s interests are strongly aligned with those of its policyowners. MassMutual has the strength, scale, and distinctive mutual ownership structure to help people secure their future and protect the ones they love.

As further context, the company is currently undergoing a far-reaching and sustained effort to transform itself by, among other steps: building a new 1,000-person office located in Boston’s innovative Seaport District, re-conceptualizing its portfolio of businesses worldwide (for example, two +$1 billion divestitures were announced in the past twelve months), and investing in new digital initiatives (for example, HavenLife.com).

An Insider's view of MassMutual

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We work in an open floor plan, so there is a lot of opportunity for networking across roles, teams and levels. Everyone is very friendly and welcomes the opportunity to get to know other people on the floor.

Kristina

Digital Adoption Team Lead

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

You don’t think of insurance as a hotbed for innovation but the very nature of our organization, Digital Experience, is to reimagine how a 168-year old company does business with its customers. Our Design team takes pride in an inclusive design process with everyone invited to provide feedback, from Product to Engineering to QA.

Maria

Digital Lead - Design

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful people on my team are: passionate, curious, receptive, and engaged. Each team member is expected to be passionate about the work that they do, and the domains in which they practice. They are always solving unique problems and must be curious about finding new solutions.

David

Digital Lead

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to embark on ‘deep work’ at least once a week on a ‘meeting-free’ designated day. We have design reviews to brainstorm alternative ways to solve business problems from a software engineering point of view. We consider self-reflection and brainstorming to be fundamental components of creativity.

Mike

Head of Data Science Software Engineering

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of our projects is an application we built for our Investment Mgmt team called ViPER (Visualizing Investment Portfolio Enhanced Reporting). The application makes it easy to manage reports and get insights from Data Science models. Now with ~150 active users, it reflects how we’re using DS to facilitate data driven decision processes across MM.
