Technology and Data Fast-Track Career Week with Root Insurance  (534115)

Technology and Data Fast-Track Career Week with Root Insurance

Meet Amy Kaminski, Director of Candidate Experience to learn about opportunities with Root Insurance.
Root is the nation’s first licensed insurance carrier powered entirely by mobile and founded on the principle that car insurance rates should be based on how you drive, not who you are. Through smartphone technology and data science, Root measures driving behavior, and uses it as the primary factor in determining rates. The result is personalized car insurance for good drivers, better rates, and a seamless mobile app experience.
Root is a car insurance company founded on the belief that people who drive well are less likely to get into accidents, and that those people should pay less for insurance. With that in mind, Root set out to reinvent a broken industry—an industry that was still assigning rates based primarily on demographics and had an archaic agent structure.
