Root was founded in 2016 by Louw Hopley and Malan Joubert, spinning out of OfferZen. With the belief that software developers are the creators of the future, we wanted to find a way to remove obstacles faced when solving real world problems in the financial services industry. We started by launching programmable bank accounts and cards, later extending Root to include easy to use insurance APIs. We’re just getting started.
We believe that developers are the inventors and builders of the future — we’re building tools that pave the way.
We invest in a culture of personal improvement and knowledge sharing. There is no ceiling to potential growth.
We’re a small team with a shot at huge success - you can help us make it happen!
We work obsessively towards building a great company. We aim for nothing short of world-class.
We move with determination and pace, unearthing and solving issues as they occur.
We give our best for our team mates, because supporting one another is critical in our pursuit of our mission.
We are prepared to change and evolve. We’re addicted to giving and receiving feedback.
We foster habits of explicit communication, because transparency enables learning.
We serve a wide range of users. We always ask whose problem we’re solving before building.

Perhaps you’ve worked in, or have a unique understanding of the financial world — the most important thing is your interest in being part of its disruption.
Your curiosity and drive has you breaking the boundaries of your role. You’re interested in impacting the success of the whole company, whatever it takes.
