Thrilled to bring on-demand insurance to the UK. Onward!
"User experience today is absolutely everything."
Who is Trōv and what do our employees have to say? Take a listen.
Trōv is the world's first on-demand insurance for your things. With a simple swipe from your phone, protect just the things you want, exactly when you want.
We are a passionate group of individuals, dedicated to helping people do more with the things they own by reinventing insurance. We're on a mission to make protecting your things simple & flexible - so you can enjoy them without worrying about rigid policies and confusing fine print.
Trōv is privately funded and headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. We’re growing our smart, passionate team and looking for incredible people to welcome to the Trōv family.
Developer life at Trōv means a lot of great things, including working remotely on your own schedule with a close-knit team.
Read about life at Trov in our own words. Here's an excerpt about working remotely:
There is no office, at least not for developers. Trōv's head office is in Danville, CA, but all our developers work remotely. To make this work, we communicate. In fact, we over-communicate.
People can, and do, work from wherever suits them: home, coffee shops, a shared workspace, at the beach, etc. — as long as you have an internet connection, you can work with your team.
We’re quite proud to score 12/12 on the Joel Test and value continuous learning / improvement, open-mindedness, and dedication to excellence. Our ecosystem presents plenty of interesting challenges: from cross-device syncing to fine-grained security, from data warehousing to scalability.
For client development we use the native tools for iOS (Objective-C/Swift) and Android (Java). The server is written in C# with MySQL and MongoDB for storage and data warehousing. The web portals use Node.js and/or AngularJS with the entire infrastructure hosted on AWS. We are flexible, iterate quickly, and focus on securing private data while providing our customers with a great experience.

I have been working at Trov full-time (More than a year)
A remarkable culture of people from around the world. One of the highlights of my career to work with such wonderful & smart people. Very strong leadership team and thrilled to be making a mark on an industry. It feels historic and meaningful.
Despite over 50% of the workforce is remote, there is still plenty of face time and a commitment from the leadership to get people together.
Advice to Management
Hoping to maintain the culture while we grow.
I interviewed at Trov in July 2017.
The interview process started with a 1 hour phone call with Team Lead. There were questions about clean architecture, previous projects and experiences. This was followed by a coding assignment. It had no deadlines. Once I submitted this, it was followed by two interviews both based on the coding assignment.
The final call was with the Chief of Staff at the end of which the offer was extended.
