AIR Worldwide – Why Work For Us?


It began in one small office in Boston and a vision. AIR pioneered the catastrophe modeling industry, creating the tools that changed how people think about risk management. Today, AIR has nine offices around the globe and is expanding our technology every day to make individuals, businesses, and societies more resilient. More than 400 organizations rely on AIR’s models, software, and services to manage their risk from natural catastrophes, terrorism, cyber attacks, and pandemics. AIR is part of the Verisk Analytics family of companies, a leading data analytics provider.

At AIR, we know that how we do business is just as important as our results. To ensure that we deliver superior products and services for our clients, we foster a work environment based on a strong set of corporate values that guide our approach.

Our Core Purpose

Our Core Purpose represents what is important to us as an organization. It is what inspires us to do what we do:

Our Values

Our Values define our approach as an organization. They are how we get things done:

Excellence

Sweat the details and get it right. Improve continuously and exceed expectations. Be innovative and open to the innovations of others.

Integrity

Act with integrity in everything we do. Be honest with clients, employees and vendors. Admit mistakes immediately, and work to correct them.

Respect

Treat all employees with the same courtesy and respect with which we treat clients. Encourage contrary opinions and nurture an atmosphere of open discussion where everyone feels welcome to contribute.

Teamwork

Share information. Speak up if something is wrong or if we can do it better, even if it is not in your area. Value others based on their knowledge and contributions, not on their positions or titles.

Passion

Bring enthusiasm, innovation, and excitement to your work. Infuse what you do with passion so that your colleagues and customers catch the fever too.

Persistence

Be persistent in every activity we are committed to. Don't be afraid to fail.

Confidence/Humility

Be confident enough to express ideas, act on them, and take responsibility for them. Be humble enough to be a team player and act collaboratively. Find the right balance between talking and listening.


Our values and sense of purpose are guided by The Verisk Way.

We offer learning and development programs that ensure our people are equipped with the tools to succeed at every stage of their career.

We’re fully aware that our success depends on a fully engaged workforce. That’s why helping employees achieve their full potential tops our list of corporate goals. Career development is a shared partnership among employees, their managers, and the overall organization. To that end, we offer a number of learning programs, ranging from leadership development and coaching to company-specific practices and policies.

Career development

It’s part of our culture to support employees' short- and long-term development interests by providing a flexible and adaptable environment that encourages people to seek a variety of opportunities for professional and personal growth.

In addition to what you can learn “on the job,” many employees take advantage of opportunities to attend national professional conferences, participate in local/regional professional associations, or attend our in-house Brown Bag Lunch series presented by our own experts.

Tuition reimbursement

Through our Tuition Reimbursement Program, AIR gives you the opportunity to refine your skills and build new ones by taking job-related college and graduate courses and degree programs.



Mentorship Program

At AIR, we believe in continuous learning and development for employees of all levels. The AIR Worldwide Mentorship Program is designed to enrich your engagement, develop leadership skills, cultivate talent, and improve your experience.

This program allows AIR employees the opportunity to share their knowledge, experience, insight, and guidance to support the development of employees and future leaders. You will be provided with the opportunity to gain broader perspectives about values, culture, and norms at AIR. From a career growth perspective, you will be empowered to become more proactive in planning and achieving your professional goals, thereby enhancing your ability to make productive career decisions.

AIR’s mentorship program is another tool that AIR gives you to help you succeed.

Orientation and On-Boarding

The learning curve at AIR is steep, but we're with you all the way. You'll have access to AIR's intensive training program to introduce you to the insurance industry, catastrophe modeling, and AIR's product offerings.

Our success doesn't just depend on the way we work with our customers. It depends on the way we work with each other.

At AIR, you'll be in a highly collaborative and intellectually stimulating environment—and you'll be part of a team that is invested in your success. There's no limit to what you can do at AIR.

Recognition

Recognition for a job well done is expressed openly and often, whether through informal and formal programs and practices, or with just a few kind words in person. There are a number of programs that AIR has established to recognize our employees.

Celebration

We have plenty of reasons to celebrate at AIR, from yet another on-time software release to the successful launch of a new model. But sometimes we have fun for fun's sake.

Diversity

AIR brings together smart, talented people from all over the world and from a multitude of backgrounds and interests. That has a lot to do with what makes AIR such a great place to work.

Citizenship

AIR, along with our parent company Verisk Analytics, sponsors a variety of initiatives that promote responsible citizenship—from our Corporate Volunteer Day to our support for Toys for Tots to our battery recycling program. And we're proud to be recognized as a Boston Bikes Silver Level Award Winner and a Silver Award winner from the League of American Bicyclists for being a Bicycle Friendly Business! Green isn't just in our logo, it's in our outlook.


It's Not Just What You Do But How You Do It

AIR's values area the core of how we have developed our culture, our brand, and our business strategies. All our success derives from these core values.

      

We take good care of our own.

In exchange for bringing your best to every project, you deserve the best in return. Here is an overview of just some of the perks and benefits of joining AIR in the U.S. AIR offers a total compensation and benefits package that is competitive within each geographical region. Each location can provide specific details upon request.
