Required seniority level

We are looking for people with a proven experience in order to make our clients and colleagues benefit from an advanced expertise. You will get introduced to our methods then you will take the full lead on challenging projects.

 
Still you can develop your skills and grow within COVARTIM
Once a year you will define your goals with your manager. It will be a good opportunity to discuss your expectations and needs in terms of responsabilities and training as well as your salary. After 6 months your manager will make sure that you are on the right track to achieve your targets and that your expectations have not changed. Based on the level of your autonomy, your control and your skills you will have the chance to grow within your team and/or the company itself; get more responsabilities in people management or become an internal reference on a specific technical topic (we call them our Yoda's).
 
Homeworking
We know that homeworking is a must nowadays. However when several people work on the same project the office remains the best option for interactions, ideas and pieces of advice sharing. Same for the coaching which is essential during the first months. 
Once you have become more autonomous you will apply for one or two days per week at home.
