About the Role

Ledgebrook is seeking experienced E&S Underwriting Assistant talent to join our growing team, whose mission is to build a profitable book of E&S business across expanding lines of business and coverages. 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 with a proven track history of delivering high-quality underwriting support and seek an opportunity to break out of the traditional insurance company mold, we're looking for you!

As a member of the Ledgebrook Underwriting Support team, you will regularly interact with Ledgebrook's underwriters and wholesale trading partners over the phone, virtually, or in-person to facilitate various transactions independently or with limited guidance. We are looking for candidates with a strong overall E&S support background across various lines of business, including a curiosity to gain a deeper knowledge of our business.

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!


As a future Ledgebrook E&S Underwriting Assistant, your experience and qualifications should include:

  • Prior general/technical E&S underwriting support experience across various lines of business and coverages
  • Experience in submission process management, including review for completeness to handle or facilitate account clearance and set-up
  • Understanding of basic underwriting data analysis to execute submission triage activities, i.e. review submission information in relation to underwriting appetite and guidelines to assist underwriting staff with eligibility determination and prioritization of opportunities
  • Ability to obtain required information from brokers, organizing/maintaining file documentation and facilitating transactions with other underwriting support resources
  • Strong organizational skills with the ability to balance multiple tasks/projects to focus on key priorities and deadline achievement
  • Understanding of company appetites and delegated underwriting authorities

About You

  • Agile prioritization skills coupled with a keen sense of urgency that seeks to balance getting it right versus getting it done right now
  • A strong drive and desire to win together as a high-performing team

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.

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. We aim to deliver a highly compelling overall employee value proposition and a total compensation package that couples equity grants with base pay and benefits offerings.
