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. We encourage you to apply as help us grow a system that faciliates millions of dollars in orders every week.

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.

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.

  • 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

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:

  • 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.
