Requirements

What you'll bring

Whoever joins our team is here for the long run. As such we invest a lot of effort in finding the best match, which means you are guaranteed to find professional, motivated, self-driven individuals, great team-players, sharp problem solvers who feel great pride and ownership on what they create. From your side you’ll bring:


  • Ownership, pride and passion in everything you do.
  • A self-driven, problem solving and innovative attitude.
  • A desire to constantly learn and constantly improve. New technologies is our business as usual.
  • Creativity and outside the box thinking.
  • Team player goes without saying.
  • Solid foundations in software engineering (from data structures and algorithms to complexity to object oriented design).
  • Confident in at least one programming language.
  • Intimacy with all things computer. Tinkering with software, trying new things, troubleshooting, hacking and generally being a master of your PC/Mac/Linux.
  • A love for technology that goes beyond your studies/work. For example, pet projects, GitHub contributions, Arduino experiments, involvement in the engineering community and personal websites are all great indications.

  • What, no job description?

    Indeed! At Covve we don’t hire people for specific jobs. We hire exceptional engineers who, in due course, will be able to take on any challenge and master any technology. You may find yourself in our cutting edge cross-platform app team (working with Ionic4 and Angular); or part of our .Net/node microservices backend; or focusing on go to market activities such as the snake game or Alexa integration. Or, most likely… many of these over the course of the first year.
