At Root, we’ve built pricing and risk models from the ground up. But we’re not done. There’s always statistical challenges to face—and our team takes collaboration head on. You won’t sit on the sidelines here. Our actuaries have the analytical creative freedom to problem solve, build our culture, and help the company make business decisions. (Also, our Actuarial team is killer at karaoke.)
We cover 100% of premiums on our base plan for employees and 75% for dependents.
Five times a week we cater healthy lunch choices for everybody in the office who’s interested.
Always have the latest and greatest phone with an annual upgrade reimbursement.
We trust everybody to get work done and manage their own work/life balance.
It will only be your position title while you study for your exam. During the interview process for the fellowship, we’ll feel out where your skills best align within the team. Then we’ll work together to determine your title and role for when you are full time.
Yes! You’ll have all of our employee benefits during your fellowship, including medical, vision, and dental insurance, our 401k contribution match, and cell phone reimbursement program.
No, but you’re welcome to! If you’re not already in Columbus, we’ll provide an additional stipend to assist with relocation. If you’re in Columbus during the fellowship, you’ll have access to our office and all of its amenities, including a lounge area to study, gym access, and catered breakfasts and lunch.
Nothing. Failing the exam does not eject you from the program. You’ll still join the Root team and keep your stipend.
