By combining exceptional talent, technology, data, and knowledge, Simply Business is the go-to online insurance brokerage that protects small businesses and the entrepreneurs who work hard to build them. 
We want team members who have the drive to challenge boundaries. If you’re smart and passionate about delivering brilliant customer experiences, we’d love to hear from you.

As a pivotal member of the Commercial Insurance team, you will be responsible for underwriting and portfolio management of the MGA small commercial book of business. This position will have wide ranging responsibilities, including maintaining underwriting guidelines, line profitability results, referral management, and product development. This is a highly technical underwriting position, which requires experience with many of the core P&C lines of business (i.e. BOP, Package, GL, Auto, WC, PL).
The exact title of this role will be dictated by the Underwriter’s level of experience.

  • Manage the underwriting guidelines, appetite, and authority of the product line
  • Serve as the MGA product SME for overall product related guidance and complete topical reviews as needed
  • Actively monitor the flow, health, and profitability of the book of business, including from a new business, renewal, rate, geographic, and product lens
  • Serve as the day-to-day Underwriter of the product, working closely with Insurance Product, the Customer Service team, and related Engineering teams
  • Evaluate and communicate key underwriting/marketplace concepts to team and management staff

What we are looking for:

  • An Underwriter who wants to experience what it's like to work for a technology focused organization
  • Prior experience working for a national or regional P&C carrier
  • Advanced knowledge of product offerings, insurance lifecycle processes, underwriting guidelines, and pricing systems
  • Advanced understanding of insurance workflows and concepts, including limits, coverages, pricing models, ISO, and form/rate rules
  • Excellent communication, analytical, quantitative, and problem-solving skills
  • Bachelor's degree with 4+ years or more relevant work experience
  • Insurance designation(s) and/or insurance education are preferred
  • The ability to challenge! We want people who can come in and shape the future of this business and not be afraid to raise questions and help us improve

• A salary that reflects your experience, our pay policy, and the market we’re in from your first day

An Insider's view of Simply Business

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We genuinely care about the work-life balance of our teammates and understand that things come up. That’s why we give our employees the ability to work from home when they see fit, not the other way around. Plus, all of our meetings are remote-friendly, so we never feel like we’re missing out on important conversations!

What projects are you most excited about?

I've really enjoyed working on the Front End for our Knowledge Center redesign, now called Simply U. Our current blog design has been sufficient, but the redesign will have new features including commenting, recommended articles, and categorization. Additionally, the new design will look much fresher and offer a better experience to customers.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I started at Simply Business, I was given the opportunity to take a leap and take on new responsibilities that I had never done before. My team has supported me and worked with me to help me learn so many new skills. I feel like I have grown in so many ways since starting here and I can't wait to see what is next.

What projects are you most excited about?

Myself and another female colleague are working on bringing a program called #iamremarkable to SB. It is about female empowerment, which is one of my passions! The program aligns with SB's devotion to gender diversity. It’s exciting that I have been encouraged and supported in this effort and I think it speaks volumes for the company I work for!
