About Us

Join our growing team at Vetcove in New York City, and help us transform how veterinarians buy the supplies they need to keep America's pets healthy. Vetcove's eCommerce and mobile platforms enable veterinary practices to compare and buy from all of their vendors in one place. Our community of more than 8,000 veterinary hospitals employs tens of thousands of veterinarians, and delivers care to many millions of animals every year across all 50 states.

We’re a growing team on a mission to modernize the $8B/year U.S. veterinary procurement industry. Simply put, Vetcove helps veterinary organizations spend more time giving care, and less time shopping and comparing across vendors to supply their practices. We're completely revolutionizing the way veterinarians discover and buy products, and how animal health brands engage their veterinary customers.

Vetcove is a Y Combinator and venture-backed growth stage company with notable investors in Silicon Valley and NYC. Our offices are located in the heart of Manhattan at 515 Madison Avenue.

Job Description

Our team is full-stack capable, working on many pieces of our system. We believe every engineer at Vetcove should have a holistic view of Vetcove and work on many different areas, so during the time of the internship, you'll be able to gain a breadth of experience across different parts of the stack.


We're looking for current juniors who are studying computer science and are able to take on projects with a good degree of independence, although there will be plenty of time spent learning from our more senior developers. Previous internship experience working on web is preferred but not required.

Experience or familiarity with ES6, a single-page app MVC framework (e.g. AngularJS / EmberJS / React), Python, or Django would all be helpful. The most competitive candidates will be comfortable with at least one of these.

As an intern, you will most likely be involved in a number of areas of the system, and you'll gain 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
  • Good software testing habits

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
