    Are you a self-motivated, construction savvy independent adjuster, contractor, or inspector looking for a better opportunity with a market-leading, tech-savvy inspection firm? Would you like to work year-round? If yes, put your skills to work conducting field inspections and assessing property conditions with Seek Now (formerly Ladder Now), one of Inc.'s 500 and 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America for consecutive years!

    We conduct inspection services for some of the biggest names in the property ecosystem – over 150 insurance companies, real estate, and more – and the way these businesses conduct their daily operations is changing fast, particularly insurance claims. Noncomplicated insurance claims work is shifting away from traditional claims adjusting, with field staff and independent adjusters performing the entire claim process themselves, to virtual adjusting supported by independent inspection services provided by companies like the industry pioneer, Seek Now. Field inspection staff and independent adjusters are being reduced while inside staff and desk adjusting is on the rise.

    You have an opportunity to stay ahead of the change and be a part of the shift into new and relevant business models for insurance and other industries before it impacts you. Seek Now is not taking jobs away; rather, we are expanding job opportunities by streamlining, simplifying and future-proofing them for the change that is already upon us. Stay ahead of change, diversify your career opportunities, and add inspection services to your professional skillset. Join #TeamGreen today.
