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. 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.

Coverity is looking for an engineer to develop and maintain the tools and utilities used to support Connect. Connect is the web-based application used to manage code defects and issues surfaced by Coverity’s award-winning analysis tools.
Join a great team of engineers using Agile development practices, modern web application frameworks, and cutting edge UI technologies to build this complex and unique application used in high-quality development environments around the world.

Connect tools include installers, licensing applications, and command line utilities which interface with Coverity’s analysis applications. The position requires proficiency in both Java and a scripting-based language. As these tools are deployed for both Windows and Linux users, the applicant must be able to comfortably work in both of those development environments.

While entry level candidates will be considered, experience working on commercial applications and working in team development environment is desired. Strong communication skills and the ability to work as a member of a collaborative team are also necessary.


Education: BA/BS Computer Science/Software Engineering

Expertise in Java programming

Expertise in a scripting language such as shell or perl

Experience in C/C++ programming is a plus

Familiarity and the ability to work on both Windows and Linux are desired.
