Digital Risk will add about 1,000 full-time jobs by the end of 2012 as the company hires more underwriters, attorneys, compliance experts and appraisers.

The Maitland, Fla.-based risk management firm attributed its growth to "housing market dynamics and the regulatory environment."

The company plans to add new offices in its home state as a result, and expand in Texas, Colorado or California.

The new employees would nearly double Digital Risk's payroll to 2,300. Chief Executive Peter Kassabov said the company currently conducts analyses on about $8 billion in loans.
