Job Description:
Known for our disciplined but common sense approach to underwriting while maintaining exceptional loss ratios, Merchants Bonding has achieved the ranking of the number one surety bond writer in Iowa and 13th nationwide. Our continued success has created the need for a Production Underwriter at the entry level who will be primarily responsible to travel nationally to produce commercial bond programs, solicit commercial business, create underwriting opinions and conduct renewal underwriting. Entry level underwriters will also have the opportunity to shadow more experienced underwriters to learn how to identify potential business opportunities. Our underwriters travel 50% of the time to their assigned areas but are based out of the Corporate Headquarters in Des Moines, IA.
Job Qualifications:
Preferred candidates will have a Bachelors degree in Finance or Accounting, prior work experience in the insurance or bond industry, have equal abilities in analysis and relationship building and have a desire to travel.
