About CoVar

Dynamic, growing machine-learning software company seeking curious and talented research/software engineers. Some of our customers look to us to find bad guys and bad things in military sensor data—helping to keep our nation and our servicemembers safe.  Other customers need help finding new cures for diseases hidden across existing biomedical databases—saving the lives of those stricken with rare diseases.  Other customers use our products to monitor machinery and workers in the energy sector, preventing injuries and environmental catastrophes. We love to see if our ideas will work and are constantly experimenting, prototyping, and testing. Some of our work is heady research, some is fast-paced product development. The most exciting projects are both.
