We’re hiring a Reserving Actuary in Columbus, OH

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.

We're looking for an actuary to join our loss reserving team to help estimate ultimate loss and LAE faster and more efficiently. We won't be asking you to stick to what you know; you'll have the freedom and support to explore non-traditional techniques and creative solutions. You'll be doing this in a fast paced environment, often reporting at a higher frequency than you're used to.

What you'll do:

  • Lead the development of using statistical models to rapidly develop estimates of ultimate loss and LAE including both traditional and non-traditional techniques
  • Estimate loss reserves for financial reporting in a changing environment
  • Support our monthly and quarterly financial reporting process
  • Apply loss reserve risk to financial modeling
  • Help develop and apply closed claim reserving models  
  • Build and maintain applications, templates, and reports that are produced each reporting cycle
  • Develop automation and programming solutions for data acquisition and other routine functions

What you'll need:

  • Two to five years of loss reserving experience
  • Passed a minimum of 3 CAS exams
  • Understanding of traditional loss reserving methodologies
  • Understanding of statutory and GAAP accounting
  • Experience with methods for developing loss reserve ranges
  • Application of statistical methods for analyzing loss reserving data and methods
  • Critical thinking and problem solving skills
