Senior Product Designer – Digital Nova Scotia – Leading Digital Industry

Senior Product Designer

Life At Covers
We’re a top digital media company in the sports betting industry, with a clear sense of purpose and a belief that success comes from the strength of our team and our culture.
When we offer a place on our team, it comes with a few promises:
  • You’ll be part of an all-star team. Work and learn with people who are the best in their field, and who bring ambition and compassion in equal measure.
  • We take care of each other. We know that you bring your best when you bring your whole self to work. We’re a wholehearted, inclusive team that invests in well-being and belonging.
  • When you grow, we grow. We’re a rapidly growing company so ample opportunity exists here, and we hold a firm belief that when we’re all growing, we all win.
  • You’ll do work that matters. We believe in meaningful work. In part it’s the impact we have and in part it’s the freedom and ownership in our work and pursuit of our passions.
We make these promises because we want to be a place where you can do your best work, as part of a truly exceptional team. In return, we expect that you’ll seek out opportunities to contribute, grow and create. That you’ll bring your A-game and keep building on it, with humility and eagerness to learn. That you’ll soak up our expertise and teach us yours. And that you’ll truly enjoy being here, with us.
What Matters Most To Us
We understand that our industry is usually associated with a non-diverse persona. We’ve created, and continue to improve on being, a workplace and community that brings fun, experience and opportunities for all.
We welcome people of any gender, race, colour, religion or belief, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, or any other self-identifying group. It’s more important to us that you love who you are and bring that to thrive here, than loving sports (although we don’t discourage playful sports banter, puns and competition!).
