Evolve Mortgage Services announced Monday that it is looking to hire hundreds of full-time underwriters this year.

The outsourced mortgage services provider has already recruited 120 underwriters in the past few months and has plans to fill another 100 permanent underwriter positions for agency and non-QM loans by the end of 2020. Evolve said that new positions are remote.

Evolve is looking for applicants with five years of experience and a thorough knowledge of agency guidelines. Applicants will also be required to analyze “B” credit profiles including income, assets and collateral value; analyze all types of tax returns; and work with agency automated underwriting systems. Employment is on a W-2 basis.

“Traditional production jobs come and go along with the ebb and flow of the mortgage business, but our goal is to meet the needs of mortgage origination firms over the long haul,” Evolve Mortgage Services CEO Paul Anselmo said. “While we’re looking for the best underwriting talent in the industry, we are committed to maintaining an environment where they are happy, stress-free and enjoy job security throughout their careers.”
