Coverity is a 275+ person pre-IPO company that is healthy and growing rapidly. With record growth in 2012, we are part of the Deloitte Fast 500, the San Francisco Fast 100, and the 2012 CODiE award winner. Our experienced leadership team has "been there, done that" in enterprise software.

Our products find bugs and security vulnerabilities in source code before they can crash software in the key systems of such important things as pacemakers, cars, and cell phones -- and before they can be hacked by malicious attackers. We are considered to be the leader in the embedded software testing space -- and we are rapidly expanding into other industries and markets. Among our 1,100 customers are:

7 of the 10 top global brands

All 10 top aerospace and defense companies

All 10 top consumer electronics companies

8 of the 10 top telecommunications companies

7 of the 10 top software companies

You name a product in your daily life, and it is likely that we made it better by improving the software. We are proud that the software of the Mars Rover Curiosity is "Coverity-clean" and our products contributed to the success of the large Hadron Collider. In addition, Coverity provides free code analysis to open source projects through our SCAN initiative and most top universities use us as part of their Computer Science curriculum to demonstrate software testing at its best.

Our team works on cutting-edge problems in compilers, build systems, program analysis, code coverage, modern web-applications, IDE plugins, and much more. The challenges range from performance (we need to analyze 10s of millions of lines code in a few hours), capacity (we need to serve organizations with 10s of thousands of developers maintaining 100s of millions of lines of code), to smooth deployments and upgrades. Our people share a passion to "help developers build better code". They are smart, work hard to take advantage of the great opportunity in front of us, strive for excellence, and have fun as a team.

We have 3 development offices - San Francisco, Calgary, and downtown Seattle. We use the best computer equipment available (including Macs), multiple large monitors, ergo keyboards, and top-of-the-line office furniture.
