I would think a position that is "entering new markets" would be a pricing role. I couldn't be certain without knowing the exact details, but i'd assume you'd help set the prices for whatever market the company is looking to enter. Typically, in my experience, this can entail anything from a an old product that your company is new to, to new coverage forms that might have different language than an old form, to just straight up coming up with new coverage forms, all need someone to figure out the correct price to charge for that.

someone clue me in, if i'm not thinking about this correctly.
If I had some duct tape, I could fix that.

Agree with comments above. Would say it's probably a pricing role, but with more "general business" needed than strictly actuarial.

Whether it's a good fit for what you want is hard to evaluate, that's why you go through the interview process - to ask them about what you want and what they have to offer.

Thanks guys, I think tometom is right. I will have quite a few questions lined up for them about the position.

What do you do in data quality?

Sounds really boring.
