Senior Backend Developer

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 January 2016, has handled over 10,000 vehicle bookings since and has been serially backed by world-class investors including Partech Ventures, Version One Ventures, Forward Partners and BP Ventures. If you want to make a difference and you’re passionate about tech and mobility, come on board and join the ride.
