Senior Underwriter

Xpert Underwriting is seeking a senior underwriter with significant liability expertise and, ideally, experience underwriting property and construction risks, including builders' risk and wrap up liability. Experience working with Lloyd's is a plus, but not necessary.

This is a work-from-home opportunity, and we will consider candidates across Canada.

You have these qualities:

  • At least 5 years of underwriting experience including underwriting complex, liability-driven risks
  • Superior analytical skills - you're an expert at distinguishing important details of a risk, and you focus on the things that matter
  • An established network of brokers with whom you maintain excellent, professional relationships
  • Highly detail-oriented - you get things right the first time, and getting things right really matters to you
  • Very comfortable with technology, and you aren't intimidated by new systems or technologies
  • A natural curiosity to grow and learn
  • Flexible thinking - you are able to rapidly assimilate new information and change your mind as circumstances warrant - you don't double-down on obsolete information
  • Prefer a smaller organization with a flat structure rather than a large organization with lots of hierarchy
  • Treat everyone - co-workers, brokers, markets, customers, delivery people - everyone with respect and dignity; this is a deal-breaker for us
  • Comfortable working independently, but also like to feel like you're a key part of a team - we provide a lot of technical and other support, including daily team video calls, but you'll be expected to manage your workload efficiently
  • Eligible to obtain licensing (this will require a criminal record check).

If that sounds like you, and you're interested in working with a team of dedicated professionals busy building a great company, we'd love to hear from you. In any case, thanks for reading this far and giving us your consideration - we appreciate it.

Xpert Underwriting offers:

  • Competitive salary
  • Excellent benefits
  • Pension plan
  • Education reimbursement
  • A great, supportive team dedicated to your success
