Trov – Why Work For Us?


Who is Trōv and what do our employees have to say?  Take a listen.

Trōv: On-Demand Insurance For Your Things from Trōv on Vimeo.


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. 

"The support I received was excellent - Jon kept me up to date on where we were with finding a solution and resolved the difficulty for me." - Caro, UK, 2017

"I got a clear answer to my question and a very quick response, I couldn't expect more." - Craig, UK, 2017

"Some of the best customer service [I] have received in a very long time!" - Troy, Australia, 2017

"Very supportive and very responsible on all the email queries sent. Keep it up!" - Clarence, Australia, 2017

    I have been working at Trov full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA).

    Interview

    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.
