We're looking for an experienced frontend engineer who wants to have a voice in the future of our frontend architecture. We have been working hard to lay the groundwork of a modern frontend, and we’re looking for someone who can help us propel that forward. On a daily basis, we make decisions about new frameworks, libraries, tools, software architecture patterns, best practices, UI design, and so on. If playing a leading role in such decisions sounds like your cup of tea, then Rover is the place for you.
