Technical Program Managers at Root are expected to wear many hats. Your primary objective is to lead and drive cross-cutting technical initiatives with a focus on engineering rigor and operational excellence. As a driver of technical initiatives, you must exhibit a strong bias for action. You should draw on your personal engineering experience to identify both tactical and strategic outcomes and understand how these outcomes support organizational objectives. You are expected to independently navigate through ambiguity to define technology, project, program, and product requirements with an eye on continuous improvement opportunities. Risk identification, avoidance, and subsequent trade-off negotiation to optimize business outcomes is a key expectation of this role. You should be comfortable communicating with and influencing all levels of stakeholders through concise, timely, audience-appropriate verbal and written communications. This role is expected to work across a range of high-priority complex projects and programs that are technically complex, and cross-functional in nature between Engineering, Finance, Internal Controls, Accounting, and other key partners of the business. The role of a TPM at Root is designed to be as flexible as our business. Priorities and focus will likely shift in time as we understand where you can deliver the most impact.

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.

Jordan

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.

Consumer behavior is nebulous. Occasionally, hints are dropped for entrepreneurs on how to create a better mousetrap. However, these hints are fleeting, often misguided, and seldom specific enough for a product manager, designer, or engineer to build an exact product that matches the consumer preference in the market. More often than not, this difficulty leads to consumer behavior being treated as a mythical creature - the understanding of which is relegated to the realm of magic gifted at birth to a few lucky billionaires - a magic which can’t be learned.
