About the role

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.
