Rover.com, one of Forbes’s hottest startups, connects pet parents with the nation’s largest network of loving and trustworthy pet sitters and dog walkers. Through Rover, pet parents can discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs, including pet sitting, dog walking, in-home dog boarding, and doggy day care. Founded 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.
The Rover team is made up of fanatical dog lovers, and that enthusiasm drives everything they do. From building progressive new tools to supporting the sitter community or writing for their awesome dog blog, employees thrive in this self-directed environment where accountability is key and everyone sees the immediate impact their work makes on the Rover community. The team, comprised of creative problem solvers and eclectic overachievers, is deeply committed to Rover’s mission. They bring the company’s core values to life, celebrating each other's successes with a culture of humor, fun, and a little irreverence, too.
At Rover, named one of the world’s most dog-friendly offices by Inc.com, every day is “bring your dog to work day.” Employees who don’t have a dog of their own can even get funds to help adopt or foster a dog. Whenever team members want to get away, Rover helps cover their dog’s staycation with the perfect sitter, and employees who moonlight as sitters on Rover accrue additional days off—just for watching dogs on the platform. Every Tuesday, the team enjoys a catered lunch where they can mingle with people from every department, and Rover hosts regular social events, from game nights and happy hours to bake-offs and skiing adventures. That’s in addition to attractive compensation, competitive PTO and health benefits, and, of course, stocked fridges and foosball.
