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
Management is doing an admirable job adjusting to the shifting/growing horizons of opportunity. The whole company is shifting toward a more mature footprint servicing not only consumers who use our app. but a ballooning list of global brands who are leveraging what we've built to bring new insurance "experiences" to their customers...under their brands. It's a big shift requiring a lot of patient cooperation. It's exciting. but is also impacting the culture...heavier stress on execution, sustainability, and big customer success.
The recent massive shifts are creating some instability and uncertainty. While normal for this kind of growth and business shift, it's been at times jarring.
Advice to Management
Encourage more face time, and less grumbling. Most of us have felt Trov is a family...let's protect that sense and value the people as much as the processes we're embracing.
I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA).
Intimate and thorough interview process. The leadership was persistent, yet honored my timeline along the way. It was a great process overall that took many months, but this is only because I was controlling the timeline.
personal & cordial. Appropriate discussion.
