How We Grow 


We’re almost always hiring Software Developers on all our teams across CoverMyMeds.  We encourage internal movement, grow constantly and experience a ton of change, so we feel it’s most important to assess you for how you’ll succeed at CoverMyMeds versus on one individual team.  We do our best to learn as much as we can about your skill set and interests, and at the end of our process, we select which teams we feel will set you up for success right away. 


Our process: 



  1. Phone interview with one of our Recruiters 

    • One of our Recruiters will set up a phone call with you that typically lasts around 45 minutes.  They’ll start by answering any questions you have about CoverMyMeds to ensure you get what you need out of the chat.  This interview is meant to be conversational and will adapt, based on your skill set and interests.  Our Recruiter will introduce topics that are important to our development teams and you’ll share what experience and opinions you have in those areas.  Topics may include things like security, reliability, REST, teaching others, learning new skills, our core values, etc.



  2. Live coding interview with one of our Software Developers 

    • One of our Software Developers will join you for a video and screen share meeting that typically lasts around 1.5 hours. They will send you 3 different coding exercises to walk through different areas of the stack. The first coding exercise will be client-side, the second will be backend and the third will be a few SQL operations.  They will spend 30 minutes live on each exercise with you. For any work you two decide should be finished up after that 30 minutes, you’ll have the opportunity to complete it on your own time and send it back to them.  We’d like you to approach this meeting as if you’re mentoring our Software Developer. We encourage you to explain your approach, be collaborative and ask questions. The goal of taking you through different parts of the stack is to confirm your areas of strength and passion. We also like to see fluency with your chosen tools.  It’s totally expected for you to use search engines while you’re problem-solving, we just ask that you’re mindful of how much you’re relying on them.  You'll be working through the exercises on your own machine, using the tools of your choice.



  3. Code day with one of our development hiring teams 

    • Our code day is meant to be a day in the life of our Software Developer role.  You’ll join us for the day, work with our team and build an application.  You’ll simulate a mini sprint by planning a project with a Software Developer, Database Administrator, Product Manager and Engineering Manager.  You’ll have a combination of individual work time and pair programming with a Software Developer.  At the end of the day, you’ll demo your application and dig into the code.  You’ll have tons of opportunities to ask us questions and really learn what it’d be like to work at CoverMyMeds.  We’re happy to conduct this step virtually for our remote candidates to get a good sense for how a remote Software Developer role would feel.




A quick note: If you’d prefer different logistics to accommodate your individual needs and set you up for success, let us know how we can help.  We want this process to be accessible and inclusive for you.
