We’re hiring a Lifecycle Marketing Manager in Columbus, OH

Lifecycle Marketing Manager

Root is a venture-backed tech 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 insurance app, allows us to fulfill both of these objectives.

Root is looking for a passionate, creative, innovative Marketing Manager to guide consumers through their journey with Root—from awareness to download and beyond. As part of the Integrated Marketing Team, you will partner with your Growth and Product counterparts to design, implement, and continuously optimize outbound communication (email, push and SMS) to nurture each individual through their journey with Root, while seamlessly integrating with marketing and product initiatives.

An ideal candidate for this role will dive deep to understand Root’s consumers, obsess about customer experience, and relentlessly pursue continuous improvement—in results and brand sentiment. You will champion word- (and design-) perfect communication, partnering with the Creative Team to create and launch communication that exemplifies Root’s brand.
