We move lightning-fast in an industry that was previously slow to adopt technology. As Vetcove quickly expands its offerings to better serve veterinary groups and its supply chain partners, we’re quickly growing our engineering team to keep pace with the rapid expansion of our business, while maintaining exceptional code quality and system integrity.

As a key member of our engineering team, you will be contributing to core features almost immediately. You will be responsible for planning, creation, maintenance, and upgrades across most of the technology stack. We also value engineers that are interested in our business, our mission, and growing the company.

...........What We're Looking For...........
We prefer that our developers have experience across the full stack of a web application. We are looking for engineers with at least 2 years of professional software engineering experience, (preferably building web applications). You should have domain expertise in at least one language, and proficiency in several others. As an engineer, you will most likely be involved in a number of areas of the system, but you have relevant experience in the following:

- Building a professionally successful production application in a modern web framework
- Designing new features around data models with accuracy, security, and performance in mind
- Working with a database and analyzing queries for improved optimizations.
- Fluency with JavaScript’s features as a prototyped and functional language
- Experience with NoSQL systems.
- Good software testing habits

Nice to Haves: You have experience with ES6, and a single-page app MVC framework (e.g. AngularJS / EmberJS/ React). You are comfortable using ORMs for code clarity, but also understand how they are connected to actual queries for performance tweaking. Experience with automated testing and build systems is also a plus.


...........Tools We Use...........
You absolutely don’t need experience with all these tools, but in case you were curious:
Backend: Python (Django, Django Rest Framework)
Frontend: JavaScript (React, Redux), Less.js, Gulp
Datastores: Postgres, Elasticsearch, Redis
Version Control: Git


...........What You’ll Be Doing...........
Contributing to the conceptualization and feature documentation of new ideas and product enhancements
Building and extending interactive React applications that will be used many thousands of veterinary purchasers, corporate hospital groups owners, and animal health manufacturers.
Adding good test coverage
Working directly with our CTO and engineering team, and closely with non-engineers.

Vetcove offers competitive salaries, equity grants for all team members, and a fast-paced but casual work environment. If you're ready to join an ultra high-performing team disrupting and important industry, email us at careers@vetcove.com.
