Current Opportunities

These are the roles Cove is currently looking to fill…

Dev Intern – Summer 2018/19

Cove has 2 intern positions available for the 2018/9 summer.

Cove is a New Zealand Fintech bringing a touch of innovation and simplicity to the insurance industry.

Application of contemporary technologies is central to enablement of our consumer-led proposition.

Formed in March 2017, we have designed and built our initial insurance products and technology platform. In June 2018 we released our initial offering based on chatbot functionality – this caters for Motor and Mobile phone insurance. We are finding customers and selling insurance via their mobile phones.

Cove will extend the platform for a wider suite of personal insurance products – a range of individual Items (latops, tablets, personal computers, TVs, stereo equipment), Contents, Home, Life insurance, and personal Cyber.

Cove has an inhouse tech team of 10 FTE that performs the R&D required to deliver functioning technology solutions.

The Role
Dev Interns will join the Technology Team as full members expected to contribute to development of individual work stories within an Agile framework.

This will require interns to become familiar with Cove’s products and service platform so new functionality will blend seamlessly with the existing business.

The Team works in the Agile framework which necessitates open and clear communications. This encourages individual input and responsibility to share ideas and feedback. Blockages to success are quickly identified for remedial assessment so momentum is maintained.

Cove encourages teamwork, support and individual contribution – a fail-fast and learning environment. Interns will have a dedicated mentor to provide guidance and support.

Tech model
Cove’s tech platform is cloud based and served up to consumers on their digital devices, currently via Facebook and our website. Behind this we have a wide array of individual applications and data services that we have integrated to provide the user experience.

Cove uses the following toolset: Javascript, Node JS, SQL, No SQL, AWS, React and others

Mon – Fri 8:30 – 5:00
Minimum of 10 weeks from November – February; more by arrangement
