We’re hiring a Claims Adjuster - PIP/MPC in Phoenix, AZ

The company: Root is a company of 650+ and (mindfully) growing. In March of 2015, we set out to build an insurance solution that did two things: 1) gave an unprecedented easy user experience and 2) used modern data to more accurately predict risk. We created a mobile car insurance app, and we changed the entire industry in the process.

This role is vital to Root’s success as we continue to rapidly grow and is largely responsible for our bottom line.
