The Company
Root was founded on the belief that insurance is a broken industry, and we set out to change it. By getting to the “root” of the issue—the unfair, archaic, complicated insurance business model—and solving it entirely, we set out to transform the insurance world.

We believe our customers deserve insurance that is:
Fair. We lean on data, not demographic labels.
Affordable. We base rates on good driver performance.
Personal. We give our customers the power to affect their rates.
Easy. We create an intuitive experience.
Accessible. We make information clear.
Beyond. We are never, ever satisfied with the status quo.

The ideal candidate is innovative, detail-oriented, and passionate about the opportunity to help connect consumers with the Root brand.
