Meet Root

We’ve taken the archaic, $250-billion insurance industry and challenged everything about it. Using telematics, we’ve built one of the fastest growing tech companies. And we’re just getting started.

As part of my job, I get to figure out what being a good claims organization actually means—how we’re going to measure it, what data we should be collecting, what our KPIs should be.

It’s really just a different environment here—completely different from where I came from. It’s like a little family, and we're pushing forward with the same goal in mind.

Being a product designer is really about finding the most valuable thing to a person at any given time in their insurance experience and working to provide that value to them.

Yes, it is intensive. But it's also so nice to feel like what you’re doing matters; like you’re doing important, impactful work.

Columbus Office Building

There’s a reason we’re headquartered in Columbus

It’s a city built on a rich foundation of financial services and insurance companies.

As home to one of the country’s largest universities, it’s brimming with young talent and innovation.

The Ohio government agencies and initiatives focused on transportation are some of the most progressive in the country and have been a large part of helping us shape our offer to consumers.

And perhaps the biggest reason we’re located in the Midwest? It’s where our customers are. As the top test-market city in the country, Columbus gives us diverse insight and data on the actions, challenges, and lives of the people who use our products every day.

Where we come from

We’ve relocated talent from all over the country to our headquarters in Columbus.
