Join us in building car insurance for the modern day
Root was founded on the belief that insurance is a broken industry, and we set out to change it. By getting to the “root” of the issue—the unfair, archaic, complicated insurance business model—and solving it entirely, we set out to transform the car insurance world.
We believe our customers deserve insurance that is:
Fair. We lean on data, not demographic labels.
Affordable. We base rates on good driver performance.
Personal. We give our customers the power to affect their rates.
Easy. We create an intuitive experience.
Accessible. We make information clear.
Beyond. We are never, ever satisfied with the status quo.
Our healthcare plan covers you and your family with full health, vision, and dental insurance. We cover 100% of premiums for employees and 75% for dependents.
We want you to feel well. So four times a week we cater healthy lunch choices for everybody in the office who’s interested.
Always have the latest phone
Since we’re a company building mobile apps, we make sure everybody always has the latest and greatest phone. We provide an annual upgrade reimbursement.
Flexible vacation policy
We trust everybody to get work done and manage their own work/life balance. We have a flexible vacation policy and don't micromanage days off.
People are best when they know that they can come to work and not worry about who they are. At Root, you’ll only be judged on the merits of your work. We believe in being a company of builders who take initiative. There’s no hand-holding here, so take the initiative, jump in, and figure it out.
We believe in attacking everything with a passionate zeal for the love of the problem. We take ownership of those problems and take pride in solving them. We believe in questioning the norm and in the obligation of everyone to respectfully voice dissent. This transcends all levels of the organization.
The only thing we fear is fear itself. So take on the tough problems. We’re tackling a huge industry, with huge problems. We don’t have room for fear. We know uncomfortable conversations are the key to success and growth. When we feel uncomfortable, we lean in and run straight at the conversation.
We don’t yet know if the universe is a friendly place or not, but we do know our small piece of it is. We work together as one team, we’re empathetic toward our fellow human beings, and we strive to listen and understand each other. The purpose of communication at Root is to understand one another, not to defend one’s own position.
