Are you someone constantly searching for ways to improve or gain new skills, collaborate on exciting and relevant projects; we might just have what you’re looking for! We’re looking for people energized by backend development to contribute to one of the following two teams: 

  • The Infrastructure team provides and maintains the base infrastructure needed to run Coveo’s Cloud services. The team is responsible for tasks such as how the network is designed, how it’s deployed.
  • The Sources team develops and maintains the APIs that allow clients to customize the content that they wish to index. The team also maintains the APIs that allow clients to push their content to our infrastructure.

  • After lunch your priorities shift, and along with your coach you begin on a project to contribute to improving our monitoring, security and infrastructure!
  • The day is coming to an end! You take some time to review the feedback you received from your latest code review and understand how you can improve for next time.
