About Vetcove

Vetcove is how veterinarians buy the supplies they need to keep America's pets healthy. Our community of more than 15,000 veterinary hospitals employs tens of thousands of veterinarians and delivers care to many millions of animals every year across all 50 states. As of 2022, we power purchasing and supply chain infrastructure for nearly half of America's general practices, emergency and specialty clinics, SPCAs, zoos, aquariums, and veterinary consolidators.

Vetcove's eCommerce and mobile platforms afford veterinary hospitals a frictionless purchasing experience, and facilitate delivery of medications to pet parents across the country. Simply put, Vetcove helps veterinary organizations spend more time giving care, and less time comparing suppliers and managing inventory. We're completely revolutionizing the way veterinarians discover and buy products, and how animal health brands engage their veterinary customers.

We're hiring! Come join us on our journey to transform how vets buy and prescribe the animal healthcare products that keep our pets in peak condition.

About the role
Skills: JavaScript, React

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.

Although we’re looking for someone with a passion for front-end work, the right candidate has had exposure to the full stack of a web application. We are looking for engineers with at least 2 years of professional experience, with references. You should have high proficiency over at least one industry-common language and be conversant (and interested to improve!) in others. As a front end engineer, you will be involved in a number of areas of the system, but you specialize in the following:

JavaScript: You have a great grasp of the language. You’ve worked with ES6 and at least one major frontend framework. You understand how unidirectional data flow works in modern web applications and are comfortable consuming and writing to API endpoints. We primarily use React with Redux.

Markup/CSS: You are comfortable working with and using the latest features (flexbox, animations, responsive selectors, SVG, etc.) and have experience working with new frameworks to make beautiful designs and layouts. You also have experience with a CSS compiler. We focus our development primarily on major browsers (hint: we don’t support i.e. < 11) and mobile web.

Nice to Haves: You have experience working with a backend language, an ORM, and writing API endpoints.

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.

Technology

Python (Django, Django Rest Framework), Typescript (React, React Native), Postgres, Elasticsearch, Redis, Git
