    Rover raises $65M round led by Spark Capital as pet-sitting startup aims for international expansion

    Typically in today's technology world, startup founders sit on one side of the room, pitch ideas to investors, and hope to land funding for their company. But when you're growing as quickly as Rover, a six-year-old pet-sitting startup that continues to expand, it works the other way around.

Rover.com – Why Work With Us?


Founded in 2011 and based in Seattle, Washington, Rover is the nation's most trusted network of pet sitters and dog walkers.

Whether you need in-home dog boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, or day care, Rover connects pet parents with people who’ll treat their dogs like family. And with over 92% of the population living within a short drive of one of the 65,000 sitters who’ve listed their services on Rover, it’s easy to find someone you and your dog will love.

 

The Rover team is made up of fanatical dog enthusiasts who know that the love between people and dogs is unconditional—slobber, chewed shoes, and all.

We're passionate about creating the best experience for dog lovers everywhere. Our management team consists of experienced leaders in marketplaces, e-commerce, and online media.

At Rover, dogs are treated like family. We bring our best friends with us to the office, and they inspire us to do our best work. Most of us are pet parents, and many of us are sitters or dog walkers on Rover, too. From former vet technicians to zookeepers, we're a diverse team devoted to the safety, health, and happiness of all dogs. Our office is full of dogs of all shapes and sizes, and we love having them here.

 

We were named among Inc.com's "Most Dog-Friendly Offices in the World" in 2016, landed a spot in Seattle Met's 2015 "Best Places to Work," named one of Forbes' "Top Startups of 2015," recognized in the "Puget Sound Business Journal's Washington's Best Workplaces for 2016," and named in the "Seattle Business 100 Best Companies to Work For" in 2016.

    Android Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rover.com.

    Interview

    The hiring goes in four stages:
    1) Call with recruiter
    2) Call with tech guy
    3) A homework project
    4) On-site interview

    On the first conversation with recruiter nothing special: just questions what I know about Rover, why do I want to leave my current job.

    The second conversation was a bit tougher: a guy and his intern were asking bunch of questions about my experience and deep mobile stuff that I know about.

    Then the third stage came. They've send me a github link and asked to implement a project. A project sounded pretty simple, for an Android developer it wasn't hard. I explained my logic behind the project in Readme file in git. I also explained two things: that I've put everything in one activity since it will be easier for people to have a quick glance at the project and that I do not want to spend another hour writing a test, but I will be if it will be a real life project. I've spend 2-3 hours on it and turned it in.

    But then they rejected me. I was breaking my head why: I thought I used all the right instruments, and asked a recruiter to tell me the reasons behind it. They ignored my first email then they finally responded. Then they didn't call when they said they will and still I asked them for a call. Finally in two weeks I ended up having conversation with them.

    And you know what they didn't like? They didn't like that I did not provide unit tests and that I've put everything in one activity. It was exactly what I explained in my description! This is just dumb. To ask to code for free and then complain about lack of tests.
