Grover’s vision is for more people to get the best out of life – with flexible, affordable access to the tech they want. Our monthly tech rental subscription model is a more sustainable way to use tech – as part of the circular economy.

Grover is growing. Fast. In 5 years, we’ve gone from a small startup based in a Berlin apartment to a team of 200+ people, offering flexible tech rental across Germany, Austria, Spain and The Netherlands. And we’re just getting started. This year, we’re expanding into even more countries and launching even more innovative ways for people to access tech – for them to get more tomorrow now.

Tomorrow’s tech lets us achieve extraordinary things, to experience deeper, work smarter, play harder and live better. So if you want to join us on our mission to get tech into more people’s hands in a simple, smart, sustainable way, we’d love to have you on the team.

  • Fast-paced startups: you love adapting to different situations, and you know how and when to iterate fast and with high quality
  • Our product: you believe in our vision, and are willing to give your best to build the future of Grover


...and you like our tech stack: 

  • Node.js (NestJS, TypeScript) for our services
  • Ruby (Rails) for our eCommerce application

We are looking for a passionate teammate with:

  • 5+ years of experience as a Software Engineer in complex environments
  • Hands-on experience with our tech stack (Javascript, Node.js, Typescript or React)
  • Background building high-scalable applications
