Junior Full Stack Engineer

Think insurance is boring? We did too. So we built a company that takes everything you think you know about buying insurance and turns it on it’s head. At Cover, we’re disrupting an industry.  It’s something we’re proud of and it inspires us to come into work every day. Everyone here is passionate about what we’re doing, using cutting-edge tools to build leading-edge tech.

We are a Silicon Valley startup operating in San Francisco and Toronto and we are scaling. Right now, we’re looking for smart, collaborative, innovators to be part of our dynamic environment. A place that celebrates successes, welcomes debate and nurtures a positive, learning atmosphere. Every Friday, we hear from the leadership, sync up our San Francisco and Toronto offices, show off what we’ve built and have fun. We’re not saving the world but we are saving people money and ensuring they get a fair deal in a way that exemplifies what smartphones were built to do. Bring us your ideas and your energy; show up ready to have a creative conversation. We will help you achieve your best potential.

Five fast facts

We have unbeatable benefits. Gym memberships; daily lunch and an enviable vacation policy.

Why join us

This is a place where Developers are front and centre; a strategic part of our success. We’re aiming for 50/50 gender diversity (and hey, if you don’t fit into either side of that ratio, that’s okay too) and global representation that makes our potlucks an international feast, we’re a company that cares about how smart you are and who you are, not the boxes you do or don’t check on a form. To that end, if you feel like you have something to contribute but don’t quite meet all of the requirements we are looking for, submit your application anyway, we promise to take a look.

If Cover sounds like the type of company you want to be part of, express your interest here or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn or Medium to learn more about us. Don't miss Pablo's Christmas Coding Story, the story of our developer-turned-Engineering Manager who taught himself Ruby over the holidays.
