We’re hiring a Product Analyst in Columbus, OH

The company: Root is a company of 180 and (mindfully) growing. In March of 2015, we set out to build an insurance solution that accomplished two things: 1) provided an unprecedented user experience and 2) leveraged modern data to more accurately predict risk. The product that we created, a mobile application through which we sell insurance, allows us to satisfy both of these objectives.

The culture: Things have been going very well for us and there is still a lot of interesting work ahead. Root is a venture-backed technology company. Our early signs of success are in large part due to our unwavering standards in hiring. We recognize that our product is only as good as the hearts and minds building it. We look for individuals who can find solutions to our challenges by going through the cycle of ideation to implementation with curiosity and vigor. We expect every team member to lead with empathy and respect. Our open office space is filled with the rhythmic tapping of keyboards, percussive “pop” of LaCroix cans, and the hum of formative conversation. The team eats catered lunch together Monday-Thursday.

Job responsibilities:

  • Mine data to perform weekly and ad-hoc analysis to uncover new product insights 
  • Own and rapidly execute product A/B testing schedule 
  • Communicate results of analysis and product recommendations to product owner 
  • Design and measure impact of customer re-targeting campaigns 
  • Build product dashboard for continuous monitoring and regularly disseminate reports to business stakeholders 
  • Work directly with engineers to maintain data warehouse and integrate with business intelligence tools 
  • Support product owner in performing market research and creating competitor database for product benchmarking 

Desired qualifications, skills, and mindset:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Mathematics, or another quantitative field
  • 2+ years data analytics experience 
  • Proficient in SQL; familiarity with Postgres databases, JQL, and Ruby on Rails a plus
  • Highly analytical with experience leveraging business intelligence tools such as Tableau
  • Superior problem solving skills with ability to think strategically and innovatively
  • Detail oriented; ability to multi-task and prioritize projects
  • Roll-up-the sleeves work ethic and “do-what-it takes” attitude to efficiently execute and drive for results in a fast-paced work environment
