Life at A Place for Rover is trotting by at record speed. Our fearless engineering team, Phil, Farhad and Kevin, have been working, noses down, to get the first version of our site up – matching great dogs with great sitters. Hunkered down in the admittedly stylish Madrona offices, Greg and David of Madrona, and me, official Dog Whisper Ambika, round out the Rover team. We come from a variety of backgrounds with differing expertise, but we all share a real love for animals and are excited to be building something that we hope will be a win-win for both dogs and dog owners in our community.
Amidst endless cans of Coke Zero Vanilla (for Phil) and cheese sticks (for me), we’ve had the pleasure of meeting with some amazing people who are helping us reach our goal of building the best site to match pooches with petsitters. Last week, we were thrilled to meet with Seattle Humane Society CEO David Lowe whose encouraging words gave us a boost of renewed confidence that we were sniffing down the right path.
