The R&D team seeks to create new and improved technology that can provide Root with a competitive advantage in the insurance marketplace (i.e., R&D takes the moonshots). You will play a key role in creating and utilizing applied research techniques that drive business insights and decision-making in unproven areas. The role will also include taking on complex forecasting and customer segmentation problems to unlock new opportunities.
You will work closely with product, business development, and engineering teams to create dashboards and analytics that track business KPIs and deliver actionable analysis. Our ideal candidate is comfortable with ambiguity, dives deep into data to find insights, is detail-oriented, and can work well with cross-functional teams.
Location: Columbus, OH or remote (the U.S. only)
