We are changing the way software is developed and we want you to join the revolution!

We’ve seen a huge transformation in the way that we live our lives – and the ways we create things, and buy things, and stay in touch. This change is all driven by software…and software is driven by developers. Coverity pioneered development testing to help developers write better software faster, easier and with fewer errors – and today we are leading the market with our award-winning software suite used by more than 1,100 companies and tens of thousands of developers around the world.

We are growing rapidly and want you to join us to do what we love to do best: write really good code, build truly innovative products and services, and continue to show how we are changing the world through better software.

Brilliant, passionate people work for Coverity. And they’re nice too…

We’re building enterprise-wide applications installed at the world’s most widely recognized companies, and used by hundreds-of-thousands of developers. It’s tough work and we’re tackling things no one else is taking on.

Coverity is at the top of the software world – creating some of the most intellectually intriguing software on the planet. We’re growing rapidly with some of the brightest minds; it takes a rockstar to work with our development team and our amazing products. Our engineers care passionately about what they are doing and are challenged by the work at hand – to help make software safe and defect-free.

We have a flat organization of professionals that know what they’re doing. Our seasoned management team doesn’t stand for politics – they just get things done. You’ll have the ability to work hand-to-hand with movers and shakers here and receive the visibility you deserve; you can rise and fall of your own accord.

Coverity is no longer a start-up and we take a mature attitude toward work – you give us your all when you are here and then go home to the other passions of your life. We enjoy a fun office but expect that your work/life will be balanced – and that you’ll take time off when you can, because you work hard.

We want you to enjoy coming into work because you are intellectually interested, driven to succeed, recognized for your contribution, and enjoy collaborating with a good group of people. We want Coverity to be one of the shining professional, personal, and financial achievements you look back on after you retire. Who are we?

  • We are smart.
  • We are fair.
  • We are direct.
  • We are hungry for growth.
  • We are focused on innovation and providing material customer value.
  • We only pick the best.
  • We are proud of our work and we drive to the finish line.
  • We celebrate our success and we learn from our failures.
  • We treat each other with professionalism and respect.


We’ve got a great environment.

Coverity, a Synopsys company, is a leading provider of software quality and security testing solutions. We help developers create and deliver better software, faster, by automatically testing source code for software defects.

Our San Francisco headquarters is modern and open – with tons of windows looking out on the China Basin canal, AT&T Park and the Lefty O’Doul Bridge. And we’re at the hub of the commute from any direction – just one block from Caltrain/Muni and easy access to the freeways. We give every HQ employee a free pass for Caltrain, while we subsidize parking and commute costs for others, and offer free shuttle rides to Market Street, Embarcadero Center and other locations, so getting on Bart and the ferries is easy.




Coverity recognizes our outstanding employees and their amazing contributions with a variety of rewards.

We offer big company benefits without the big company. We want our people to feel comfortable, recognized, and have a meaningful stake in the Company’s success. Some of what we offer in the United States:


Medical: PPO & HMO (Anthem, Kaiser), Dental (Delta Dental), Vision (VSP)

Domestic partner coverage is available. We pay 80% of the benefit premium cost.


We have a self-managed paid time off program to recognize that we all live in a 24/7 world and need to refresh when we can, not when we have “enough accrual” to relax. We also have scheduled paid holidays throughout the year.
