Play a key role in developing modules that deliver secure and split-second search results.

As a Backend Developer in the Security Cache team in R&D, you will be working at the core of the Coveo Relevance Cloud™ Platform. The team is responsible for designing, developing, orchestrating, scaling and monitoring many systems that quickly and accurately determine which pieces of secured information can be returned to users performing a search query.

Along with your team colleagues, you will be working on making sure that these modules are:

  • Extremely precise - Quality is not a choice when it comes to secured content;
  • Ultra optimized - Queries need to be answered in the blink of an eye;
  • Highly available - Always up… Always;
  • Scalable - Colossal amount of data needs to be ingested every day.

Sounds challenging? Then we need you!

Your typical day at Coveo:

  • You start the day with your virtual morning scrum. The bar was set high for the last 2 weeks, and 3 days before delivering, it seems your team did an excellent job so far. You’re waiting on your performance tests to finalize and pick a few other tasks on another project on your Jira board
  • You think about your next lines of code: you’re stuck on a problem. You stop by Slack and ask one of your colleagues if they have any ideas for you. After all, they may have already dealt with something similar
  • Code, test, code, test… When you think you’re ready, you open a pull request to get feedback from your colleagues. You’re expected to give them feedback on their work too! 
  • Your afternoon is a great focused stretch. You end your day proudly, with a fist in the air, because you finally understood the interaction between 8 different modules that caused a glitch. Good job!
  • You use a few minutes of your free time to think about and document your next awesome hackathon project.

What are the basic requirements for the role?

  • At least 3 years of working experience with C++
  • You’re a fast learner and a team player
  • You like to challenge yourself, to be challenged and don’t hesitate to challenge others… You know it’s the way to go to deliver high quality, well-tested and performant modules
  • Great capacity to explain the reasoning behind your coding choices.
  • A person that will simply CARE about the challenge they will tackle, and do the extra steps to achieve a great result.

Some qualifications or assets that might add weight to your application: 

  • Familiarity in Java and Python
  • Familiarity with DevOps technologies (AWS services, Kubernetes)
  • Familiarity with SQL databases
