We’re hiring a Project Coordination Intern in Columbus, OH

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. Design and copy, and a strategic approach to both, have been a critical component of the company every step of the way.

Root is a venture-backed technology company. Our early success is in large part due to our unwavering standards in hiring. We recognize that our product is only as good as the people building and promoting it. We look for individuals who find solutions by going through the cycle of ideation to implementation with curiosity, rigor, and a highly analytical lens.

Following a recent rebrand, the Marketing Creative team is more focused than ever on telling the Root story through clear, bold, void-of-jargon-and-cliche communications. We’re looking for a Project Coordination Intern who is excited to learn more about the creative process and work closely to assist our expert Senior Program Managers in the day-to-day management of creative projects.
