| Seattle
Who we are:
Rover.com connects pet parents with the nation’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers. On Rover, pet parents can easily discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs including pet sitting, dog walking, and doggy day care. Founded in 2011 on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love of a dog, Rover improves and simplifies life for pet parents and the dogs they love. 
We're headquartered in downtown Seattle. We're an agile, fast-growing startup, and our leadership comes from some of the country's most respected tech companies. Our Senior Leadership team has been recognized by Forbes, Seattle Business, and Geekwire. We've been named among Seattle's "Best Places to Work" in Seattle Met magazine, Seattle Business Magazine, and the Puget Sound Business Journal in 2016 and 2017. We're also the recipient of World’s Most Dog-Friendly Offices in 2016 by Inc.com. Needless to say (but we're going to say it anyway)—we love dogs, and we wouldn't dream of going to work without them by our sides.
We are looking for a strong IC who is part Software Engineer, part Analyst and part Accountant - YES! Accountant! The right individual will be embedded in the Finance organization, focusing on Rover’s Revenue and Tax engines. They will report to the Head of FP&A and will get to work closely with the Head of Accounting & Tax, ensuring that Rover’s critical financial subsystems are functional, accessible and secure. A general understanding of accounting rules is required in order to have the foresight to avoid implementation pitfalls and instead create amazing solutions.
The role has the following directives:
Be part of the Accounting, Tax and Finance groups - Perform technical due diligence when evaluating system or vendor changes. Help the full group with data, tooling, documentation, and research for internal and external auditing.
Ensure financial transaction completeness, accuracy, and auditability - The right candidate will own the accounting subsystems handling many of the company's financial events and monetary flows. You will own the financial reconciliation systems and processes to ensure data accuracy.
Ensure the right level of information is surfaced and accurate  - A lot of good engineering can go to waste if the business is not able to access and understand the result. You will be part analyst in the role, making sure information is accessible, accurate and timely.
Ensure data integrity and controls  - Partner with the engineering team to extract the finance app from Rover’s core app, enabling lock down controls (SOX).

  • Understand that mistakes in the accounting systems have serious impacts on decision making, audit outcomes, and company values.
  • Work comfortably as a super-IC. Partnering, prioritizing and communicating against agreed upon objectives.
  • Care about the design and usability of internal software interfaces used by other engineering teams.

Your Qualifications:

  • An analytical mindset - curious to understand the outcome and what it means - not just the delivery of it
  • Comfort working in different parts of the stack
  • Experience with relational databases and schema design

  • Proficiency with SQL, Python and Django
  • Bonus: Experience with financial, accounting or payments systems (e.g., Stripe, Paypal, Braintree and/or Netsuite)
  • Bonus: Experience scaling architecture
  • Bonus: Experience working with large and complex datasets

Our Style:

  • We are a highly energetic Finance team, who works hard, meets deadlines and truly enjoys each others company
  • We like to move fast, but intentionally balance pace and precision based on each individual project

  • You're eager to learn and improve your craft as a software engineer/analyst
  • You're able to take loose requirements, work with others to figure out what needs to be done, and drive a project forward.
