We’re looking for a teammate to help transform our backend infrastructure into a scalable future-proof platform. Your job will initially be to take our existing backend and transform it into an enterprise-grade environment. You’ll help enable our team to better manage our data and make sound business decisions off insightful analytics from our database.

In this position, you’ll work on a small team consisting of a front-end developer, VP of Engineering, and product manager. You will collaborate with the product manager and VP of Engineering to create technical requirements and tasks from business objectives that enable our services to provide value through our service offerings to veterinary clinics and their clients.

You’ll be one of our first hires, so not only will you help lay the foundation for our backend tech stack and DevOps, but you’ll also help shape our company culture as we continue to grow.

While you will mostly be working on our technology, we are still a startup so occasionally we might need you to help with something that’s not technology related.

What you will do

  • Migrate our database from Firebase to a NoSQL and SQL database framework
  • Collaborate with the team on creating database models and relationships
  • Set up and maintain highly available and secure servers
  • Create microservices and containerize various backend services
  • Develop and maintain API and GraphQL services
  • Work with technology partners to set up system integrations
  • Set up CI/CD processes for deploying new builds of our server apps

Current Technology Stack

  • Angular 5+
  • Ionic/Cordova
  • Node.js/Express.js
  • Firebase Realtime Database

Future additions:

  • SQL & NoSQL Databases
  • React JS & React Native


  • Excellent understanding of databases (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB) and web servers (e.g. Apache, NGINX)
  • Proven experience in creating database models and relationships
  • Knowledge of multiple JavaScript frameworks (e.g. Angular, React, Node.js)
  • Experience with various AWS services
  • Experience in creating highly available, redundant, and secure backend environments

Our Beliefs

  • We’re mostly self-taught, infinite learners
  • We like to move fast especially when we’re on the right track
  • Productivity is measured on value created, not how many hours you put in
  • We prefer to take a step back from our daily grind to think about the bigger picture and why we’re doing what we're doing
  • We’re a customer-centric company, nearly everything we create is based on real learnings from our customers
  • Our best work is done in a collaborative effort where individuals have autonomy and meaningful responsibilities
