Seattle, WA, United StatesSenior Posted 13 days ago
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, and Geekwire. We've been named among Seattle's "Best Places to Work" in Seattle Met magazine, Seattle Business Magazine, and the Puget Sound Business Journal in 2016 and 2017. We're also the recipient of World’s Most Dog-Friendly Offices in 2016 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.
Who we're looking for:
Rover.com is looking for a Senior Software Engineer who will be responsible for working with our Technology and Product Management teams to grow and expand the Rover Now business.
In 2017, Rover launched Rover Now - a new way for dog owners to book walks for their pets instantly, with no searching required. Since then, Rover Now has become our fastest growing service, rapidly expanding into our top markets. We function as a "startup within a startup" - an autonomous business unit facing all the challenges of hyper-growth, while benefiting from extensive support across the broader organization.
From breaking down requirements and writing implementation plans, to building the features and then launching them for our customers -- you will be a key player in our efforts to scale the demand acquisition for the Rover Now business. If you enjoy working on an early-stage product, and want to see your own efforts have an out-sized impact on the business, this is the position for you!
