Senior Software Engineer - Frontend Platform

Seattle
Engineering
Full-time
Who we are:

Rover.com connects pet parents with the nation’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers. On Rover, pet parents can easily discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs including pet sitting, dog walking, and doggy day care. Founded in 2011 on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love of a dog, Rover improves and simplifies life for pet parents and the dogs they love.

We're headquartered in downtown Seattle. We're an agile, fast-growing startup, and our leadership comes from some of the country's most respected tech companies. We've been named among Seattle's "Best Places to Work" in Seattle Met magazine, Seattle Business Magazine, and the Puget Sound Business Journal." We're also a recipient of Seattle Business Magazine's 2015 Tech Impact Awards. Needless to say (but we're going to say it anyway)—we love dogs, and we wouldn't dream of going to work without them by our sides.

Who we're looking for:

We're looking for an experienced frontend engineer to help lead projects to improve the performance, stability, and ease of development of UIs for the entire Rover engineering team. A successful member of our team will be excited to learn new technologies, work at the periphery of frontend development, and lead cross-team initiatives. Some of these projects include end to end testing infrastructure, server side rendering of React, and creating a design system.
