About Vetspire

Vetspire is an Artificial Intelligence driven veterinary medical records and practice management platform. We’re a startup reimagining the way that veterinarians use technology, impacting every aspect of patient care from AI assistance in the exam room to managing client communications and clinical analytics. As part of our team, you’ll be designing the future of what veterinary technology should and can be, and you’ll be joining a founding team out of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory building a research platform for evidence-based veterinary medicine.

The Role

We’re growing quickly and looking for full stack software engineers of all levels to join the team to help bring veterinarians’ dreams into fruition. Your day to day work will consist of learning and understanding veterinarians' and veterinary staff needs and bringing them into reality from the front-end to the backend. To do this, you’ll be working at every stage of patient care from the exam room to back-end analytics.

Some examples of what your work may look like:
* Creating an emergency room clinical census to monitor patients and alert staff in real-time.
* Designing the interface and algorithms for intelligent immunization reminders.
* Building a secure messaging platform for client and doctor communications.

We're looking for someone who will take ownership over the full pipeline of their work in a team-centered atmosphere that will work and talk directly with the users every day. You'll want to take pride in talking with clients to understand their needs, brainstorm with the clients to find the ideal solution, implement the back-end architecture at scale, design beautiful and intuitive interfaces on the front-end, and continually iterate based on client feedback. 

This specific role will be very hands-on: you'll work closely with our veterinary users to understand their unique needs and build solutions for them to solve real problems in the field. It's half-part engineering, half-part problem solving.

Vetspire is a remote, distributed team, so this will be a remote role. Occasional travel to Austin, TX will be required for in-person meetings.

Technologies

Our backend is a GraphQL Phoenix/Absinthe application written in Elixir, our front end is a React SPA using the Apollo GraphQL framework, our primary database is PostgreSQL, and it all runs on Google Cloud via Kubernetes.

Experience with these technologies will be a great bonus (especially Elixir, React, and GraphQL), but the most important experience is in understanding users’ problems and putting together end-to-end solutions. Experience in healthcare technology is also a boon, but not at all required. Keen attention to detail and design is a must. 

Interview Process

If you're a good fit, we'll reach out to set up a phone call to tell you more about Vetspire. If you're interested, we'll work quickly to identify if this will be the best role for you:

~30 minute screen, where we'll just ask some basic questions to understand your experience and skill level.
~Short 2-hour max Take-Home Coding Assignment
~1-hour technical interview to review the coding assignment
~1-hour interview with our CEO.

Afterwards, we'll hope to make you an offer and have you join our team!

Salary range: $120,000-$150,000 USD
