Job Share or Full-time Position

Do you want a job that can change, grow, and evolve with you? Energized by the start-up mentality, but like the stability of a well-backed company? This position is a great opportunity to develop and be part of a rapidly growing company. If you’ve tried to get approval on an insurance policy recently, you know it is a rigorous process. Why are some policies approved or denied and who makes those decisions? An underwriter is an important role that evaluates submissions and assesses risk to determine coverage eligibility.

When making decisions, do you like to research all the relevant facts and information available? Do you make a list of pros and cons to determine the best decision? Do you like going through a checklist and have a follow-up system to ensure everything is complete? Are you able to work quickly while also maintaining accuracy? Do you work independently, but also enjoy working with a team and have a high level of professionalism to interact with clients? 

What you would do:

  • Evaluate submissions to determine coverage eligibility with various insurance companies and solicit quotes from those carriers when appropriate.

  • Underwrite and appropriately price accounts through an underwriting process including identification of risk exposures and evaluation of loss history.

  • Interact with both retail insurance agents and primary insurance company personnel to help facilitate the placement of coverage.

  • Ensure incoming calls are answered promptly and professionally.

  • Take necessary measures to obtain information needed to finalize inquiries/ transactions and maintain a suspense and follow-up system for outstanding underwriting items.

  • Manage documents – thoroughly review and understand documents, process as instructed.

  • Routinely communicate with team members, agents/brokers and other key business partners 

  • Utilize and adhere to internal guidelines, procedures and service standards to ensure that all assigned work/transactions are processed in a timely and accurate manner and meet compliance standards.

  • Provide accurate underwriting documentation/information in account management systems and adherence to documentation standards.


For this role, some familiarity with commercial insurance is preferred, but not required as long as you have the ability to quickly learn. An undergraduate degree or equivalent work experience is preferred. To be successful in this role, you must be organized, detail and process oriented, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, exercise good judgement, and be resourceful. You work well in a fast-paced, high volume environment, yet are flexible and able to reprioritize daily work to align with the needs of the company. You must be comfortable with technology and computers and proficient using Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Outlook, Excel).
