Life at Root Insurance Company

About Root Insurance Company

We started Root to change the car insurance industry. Other insurance companies don't know whether people are good drivers or bad drivers. They set insurance prices based on crude demographic factors like age and gender, resulting in bad drivers paying too little, and good drivers paying too much. At Root we are changing that. We've created a way to understand how people actually drive, so that we can give the best drivers the best insurance prices. We have an opportunity to collectively save people billions of dollars a year.

We received regulatory approval from the Ohio Department of Insurance in 2016 to become an officially licensed insurance carrier. This enabled us to launch and start selling policies. In 2019, we will be focused on adding top engineering talent to our current team of 120 engineers while also increasing the number of states we are licensed to sell in.

With $523M of funding, a stellar team, and our product on the market, it certainly is an exciting time to join our growing team!
