We’re looking for a teammate to help transform our backend infrastructure into a scalable future-proof platform. Your job will initially be to take our existing backend and transform it into an enterprise-grade environment. You’ll help enable our team to better manage our data and make sound business decisions off insightful analytics from our database.

In this position, you’ll work on a small team consisting of a front-end developer, VP of Engineering, and product manager. You will collaborate with the product manager and VP of Engineering to create technical requirements and tasks from business objectives that enable our services to provide value through our service offerings to veterinary clinics and their clients.

You’ll be one of our first hires, so not only will you help lay the foundation for our backend tech stack and DevOps, but you’ll also help shape our company culture as we continue to grow.

While you will mostly be working on our technology, we are still a startup so occasionally we might need you to help with something that’s not technology related.
