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)
I have been working for Trov for just under 1 year and have seen the tremendous growth that is happening at the company. The leadership team do listen to your concerns regarding the product, customer experience or your general well being too. I have had the pleasure to see this first hand and the changes I have proposed have been assigned to be implemented.
I do like that you are setup to be a success and that you can truly take initiative to improve your impact on the company. Scott the CEO is a great leader and more importantly a listener and always has time to talk and get to know the employees at Trov even if they are remote ones. I am fortunate to work out of the Danville office so I see Scott in full motion and it is a pleasure to work for him and Trov.
Nothing I have seen. As mentioned a con can alway be turned into a positive or a Pro, you just have to work at it and have a voice if you are unhappy with yourself, team or product. Everyone has a voice and no idea is laughed at or disregarded they are all taken seriously.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. It would be nice to hold quarterly town halls with the executive team so that the company can ask questions and be fully transparent
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Trov in September 2017.
Flow was Culture fit phone screen, technical phone screen then an onsite interview with 4 people.
The devops team reported to the COO which was strange. I heard different things from each phase about what the job responsibilities were.
Very advanced tooling and orchestration made a strong case for their team and stack. Very dynamic and open workflow.
Didn't like that 100% of the development team was remote.
