Front End Developer (London)

full-time Drover London

Drover is the mobility-as-a-service platform for everyone who wants a car for longer than just getting from A to B: find the car you want, keep it for as long as you want, swap or cancel anytime. In short: we are the Netflix for cars.

Drover achieves this through a two-sided rental marketplace model, connecting professional fleet owners with individual hirers, run on a superb website, a SaaS-based fleet management interface and a mobile app. Our vision is to provide a better alternative to car financing and traditional ownership and change how people access cars today.

Drover was founded by a team of serial technology entrepreneurs in London in January 2016, has handled over 30,000 vehicle bookings since and has been serially backed by world-class investors including Partech Ventures, Version One Ventures, Forward Partners, Cherry Ventures and BP Ventures.

To supercharge our product development, we are now looking to add a talented Front End Developer to our London-based team of developers, product managers and designers. As a member of the Front End team at Drover, you will be working closely with our product managers, designers and backend developers in an agile environment, continuously releasing in order to test, adapt and redeploy in the shortest possible release cycles.
