Senior Software Engineer - Growth
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. Our senior leadership team has been recognized by Forbes, Seattle Business Magazine, and Geekwire, and in both 2016 and 2017 we were celebrated as one of Seattle's "Best Places to Work" by Seattle Met magazine, Seattle Business Magazine, and the Puget Sound Business Journal. In 2016 we were listed among the World’s Most Dog-Friendly Offices by Inc.com. 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.
