Mission: Trov is dedicated to reinventing insurance by making it simple, flexible and transparent. With a simple swipe on your phone, you can easily protect just the things you want, exactly when you want.
Delighted to be mentioned in Fast Company's latest article on the 15 principles of Service Design. The author highlights many impressive companies (Monzo Bank, Deliveroo, Citymapper) and features Trov as a model for responding quickly to change. Definitely worth the read, especially for UX designers. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQIRg

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

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.

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.

Advice to Management
More efficient meeting planning
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.
