At Root, we’re doing things differently. We believe people who drive well should pay less for car insurance. Using technology in smartphones to measure driving behavior, our app lets us know who’s a safe driver and who isn’t. The entire Root experience lives in a simple, easy-to-use app.

An Insider's view of Root Insurance
What does your typical day look like?
A quick standup followed by opportunities for both pairing and soloing. Maybe an occasional design meeting or retrospective. My team sits at the intersection of a lot of technologies so the day-to-day work varies. There's time carved out to learn technologies that are new to me and to help lead others with the technologies that I already know well.

How does the company support your career growth?
I think the emphasis on team rather than personal responsibility makes Root a great place to grow. Engineers aren't concerned with producing their "own" work at the exclusion of helping others. Engineers at Root also just love problem-solving and step up to whatever problems I come to them with.
I love the idea of using technology tools to disrupt outdated industries. That is what was so compelling about Root Insurance. We use technology and data to create better and more affordable customer experiences.
General Manager of Enterprise
I love coming to Root because everyone here actually wants to be here. When you work with people that love coming in every day it completely changes the atmosphere. It's a pleasure to be surrounded by friends instead of just co-workers.
