An Insider's view of MassMutual

What's something quirky about your company?

Unique to MassMutual is that the cyber security mission parallels our corporate mission; to help people secure their future and protect the ones they love. Working in Cyber Security is fascinating because you must stay ahead of the threat actors and it's meaningful because you are solving problems that protect our employees and customers.

Lisa

Head of Cyber Business Risk

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

Lead Architect

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

It’s not possible that everyone on my team will agree on everything or have the same approach to a given project – I don’t want us to. I encourage a culture of transparency and constructive feedback. Volunteer your opinion, but be thoughtful about it – give your reason for disagreeing. Transparency and vulnerability lend themselves to trust.

Bisakha

Head of Data Science - Marketing and Distribution

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.
