We’re hiring a Lead Product Analyst in Columbus, OH

The Company: 
Root is a company of 300 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.
