CoverageBook is a Software as a Service (SaaS) success story. We help PR professionals make beautiful reports that demonstrate the value of their work for clients and stakeholders, while also saving hours of manual busywork.
Established in Brighton in 2014, we have 2,700 customers across the world and are a calm and profitable business. We don't have unrealistic external pressure to grow, but we continue to grow anyway because it’s fun and we want to help more people.
We’re looking for a junior developer to join the product team. We want to be your first helpful step on a longer career journey.
This is a year long contract, fully-paid at market rate. At the end of the year, we’ll help you find and prepare for your next role, you’ll be ready.
Why only a year? We are intending to do this again, next year, with more folks just like you.
We’re eleven people and the business deliberately grows much faster than our headcount. Which means we’re in charge of our own destiny.
We are looking for folks with good written and spoken communication skills with an ability to work well in a small team. You should be able to demonstrate the ability to define and solve problems and have a high bar for the quality of your work. You should have had exposure to Ruby or Ruby on Rails plus an enthusiasm to keep learning after your initial coding education; whether self-taught, university or boot camp.
Submit your CV plus a cover letter
There will be a take home coding test (approx 30–60 minutes work)
A ten minute presentation to our team where you'll discuss and share a Rails project you’ve built. Plus a chat about the technical test and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
You should be able to talk about and walkthrough a Rails project you have built, a hobby one is fine. Eloquently describe the challenges you set out to solve, the problems you had and the parts you are most proud of.
We encourage applications from underrepresented folks.
Don’t pre-screen yourself out. Apply.
While we’d expect it to take a few weeks before you’re shipping consistantly, it won’t take long before you are working on these sorts of projects with the help of more experienced developers in our team.
Plus you’ll have 20% of your time dedicated to self-study in the manner in which you learn best. We can help you with resources for this.
Fully remote. We’ve always been remote-friendly but we’re currently primarily based along the south coast. Getting together is part of the fun for us, plus in your early career it’s easier to build context, skills and comfort with at least some in-person time.
You also won’t get to dive into the “latest” and shiniest technology. For us, predictable production-hardened software, built well and tested automatically (80-95% coverage) & by other team members, means fewer PagerDuty alerts to wake us from our beds or to interrupt our holidays.
We’re not a big team and we aren't going to grow massively, if you want the learning from that specific chaos you’ll have to look elsewhere.
