The engineering team at Root is changing the insurance industry by leveraging technology and data to build the best products possible. Even with our significant growth, we operate in small teams that are given ownership over projects and results. We’ve found that the people closest to the problems are the best at solving them.

The Team The Reliability Team enables engineers to deploy code and provision, operate, monitor, and own infrastructure. Additionally, we set standards and best practices and serve as internal subject matter experts for select cloud-based services. We accomplish our mission primarily through software tooling. We deploy our applications using Amazon Elastic Container Service running Docker containers. For our infrastructure, we use Terraform with in-house tooling. We’re looking for a site reliability engineer to help scale these platforms. You’ll be joining a small team dedicated to infrastructure, having a large opportunity to influence how we scale and automate these systems.
The Role We divide the areas of responsibility for engineers into three major categories:
Technical: The skills and knowledge that make up an engineer’s basic problem-solving toolbox.
Planning and Execution: The ability to plan and execute assigned work beyond basic technical solutions. Working with Others: The ability to work effectively with other engineers and people in other functions.
