Senior Risk Engineer Property (Hybrid, m/f/x/d, 80-100%)

About the Role


Join the EMEA team of Property Risk Engineers on our journey to become the leading service provider in the commercial insurance world! You will closely collaborate with clients and brokers as the technical owner of all Risk Management property-related matters with a focus to our German & Austrian book-of-business, also with the opportunity to service customers in other regions.


As the Account Engineer for mid-size to large industrial customers, you will define a servicing strategy and engineer your own portfolio to achieve thoughtful risk selection, growing a long-term profitable book-of-business. You will review, interpret and build your specialist opinion based on third party risk information, conduct prospect visits and develop a strategic servicing plan for our customers.


You will also lead your own field-engineering visits, set priorities and targets for risk improvement and partner with our customers to develop a long-term relationship. Based on your skills, you will develop to become a specialist in dedicated core industries or subject matters. This includes driving various projects, initiatives, development and implementation of strategies, crafting standard methodologies, guidelines or papers and industry updates or developing new innovative service offerings.


Our highly agile set-up allows a huge degree of job diversity and development opportunities. Our dual approach of own and 3rd party (field engineering partners) site surveys gives us increased flexibility and an outstanding customer-focus.

We are a diverse team of engineers across EMEA located in Munich, Zurich, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London and Johannesburg with a high level of entrepreneurial spirit, energy and expertise, that we seek to complement and strengthen together with your support.
