About the Role

In this position you will be joining a growing Team of Life & Health Underwriters in Bratislava who are responsible for supporting major markets across the EMEA region with underwriting related activities.

As your skills grow, you will also participate in more sophisticated services which we provide to our clients including product development, reporting, trainings, audit, etc.

On a daily basis you will be responsible for managing the following:

• Reviewing of customer information (medical, financial, occupational/recreational) and collection of additional information in order to assess potential customers and decide on the risk for a policy.
• Evaluating insurance applications and making decisions in accordance with iptiQ's underwriting standards.
• Data entry of underwriting cases in iptiQ's specialized underwriting systems.
• Support cross-functional collaboration with other iptiQ teams in delivering value to the business.
• Contribute to the continuous development of iptiQ's underwriting related tools.
