You bring the passion and entrepreneurial spirit; we’ll provide the platform to unleash the very best of your talents and skills. Together, we’ll celebrate and reward success! Are you intrigued? Then read on and apply now to advance your career at Ledgebrook.

About the Role

Ledgebrook is seeking experienced E&S Casualty Underwriting talent to join our growing team whose mission is focused on building a profitable book of primary and supported excess casualty business. Ledgebrook’s vision is to deliver market relevant solutions to our key wholesale trading partners in a more frictionless environment that places an emphasis on efficiencies and quality to meet or exceed our broker’s overall needs in a risk differentiated manner. If you possess an entrepreneurial passion that includes a proven track history of delivering underwriting excellence and are seeking an opportunity to break out of the traditional insurance company mold, we’re looking for you!

As a member of the Ledgebrook E&S Casualty team, you will regularly interact with our wholesale trading partners over the phone, virtually and in-person to drive in-appetite submission flow and convert on the best opportunities quoted. We are looking for disciplined underwriting candidates that possess a strong overall E&S casualty background with experience across multiple industry segments, i.e. manufacturing, distributors, construction, real estate, retail, mercantile, habitational and hospitality. As noted, our product offerings will include both primary and supported excess capabilities, so experience handling both products is essential.

We are flexible with both a candidate’s experience level and physical work location. The actual position title (Underwriter, Senior UW, Executive UW, etc.) and role (Individual Contributor, Team Lead, etc.) will be dependent on a candidate’s specific experience and qualifications. We currently operate in a fully remote work environment, so we’re more focused on your experience and cultural fit than where you physically sit!

  • 5+ years of E&S Casualty underwriting experience across a broad variety of industry segments and related classes

  • Innovative problem solving and solutioning skills
  • Deep wholesale broker trading relationships
  • Agile prioritization skills coupled with a keen sense of urgency that seeks to balance getting it right versus getting it done right now
  • Ability to travel independently to meet with assigned brokers or with the broader Ledgebrook team to participate in industry conference or events
  • Prior experience working in an MGA or other delegated underwriting authority environment ideal, but not required
  • A strong entrepreneurial drive and desire to build and win together as a high performing team
  • Disciplined underwriting acumen that can both leverage and effectively manage primary and supported excess capabilities, including exposure analysis skills associated with scheduled underlying coverages that may not be underwritten by Ledgebrook, i.e. automobile liability, employers’ liability

About Ledgebrook

Our next-gen tech stack supports faster, risk differentiated solutions to be crafted and delivered in response to the fast-paced needs of the E&S market. Our data driven approach seeks to unlock more opportunities and value from every submission received, leading to a faster ‘yes’ more frequently, but may also lead to a quick ‘no’.

We are motivated and structured to move faster than traditional insurance organizations. To fully align business objectives with a long-term view that supports our culture and values, all employees will have the opportunity to participate in company ownership through equity grants. Our goal is to deliver a highly compelling overall employee value proposition and total compensation package that couples equity grants with generous base pay and benefit offerings in lieu of a heavy reliance on less predictable bonus programs.

At Ledgebrook, as a unified team of company stewards, we will Care, Strive and Thrive together!
