An Insider's view of Root

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.

Senior Software Engineer

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.
