AVP Level BOP Underwriter

Hiscox is a global specialist insurer, writing around $4bn of GWP globally. The USA digital franchise is the fastest-growing, and probably most exciting, part of our global footprint. Specifically, we have carved out a position as America’s #1 small business digital insurer, and just recently surpassed 500,000 policies in force on our platform. We have significant aspirations to keep growing that business and see a tremendous runway of opportunity. Our product footprint today is largely focused on GL, professional liability and BOP. Today, our BOP footprint is narrow – limited classes (mostly white-collar, office-based) and only 20 states. In Q1 2021 we’ll be ramping that up to a more comprehensive product, in all states and in many more industry classes.

To support that growth we’re looking to hire an AVP level BOP-focused underwriter, who would report direct to the Head of Underwriting for this digital small business division of Hiscox. While our primary focus is technical expertise we’re also interested in candidates who have the aspiration to move through the organization over time into other opportunities – that career scope is there. We are a relatively small business and so the person we’re looking for needs to be comfortable with the visibility they’ll get for product governance and profit – put another way, this opportunity has the platform to make a difference and be recognized, rather than a very small cog in a very large business.

In addition to this BOP underwriting opportunity, we are also looking to bolster our distribution team who find, onboard and manage partnerships to continue driving the growth of this division across traditional agents embracing technology, brand partnerships and insurtechs.
