Fullstack developer to our e-commerce platform

Join us in changing how pet care is provided worldwide!

FirstVet is the first truly digital veterinary clinic. We let pet owners meet with licensed veterinarians via their mobile or computer. Our solution contributes to a more balanced and better functioning care process for all parties. By providing a first point of contact for all pet owners FirstVet makes pet care more available, more efficient and more qualitative.

The role: 

We are currently expanding our e-com tech team and are looking for a fullstack developer to further establish our web shop. You will join a small team that works in an agile way to build up our new platform. The web shop was released in the beginning of 2021 so you will therefore join early on in the product life cycle. You will work closely with our developers, Ina and Mikael, as well as our CTO Niklas. 

You will have a lot of responsibility which means great opportunities to influence technical solutions, strategies and processes. You are expected to independently drive technical solutions from start to completion but you of course enjoy teamwork and, just like us, believe that sharing best practice and helping your teammates, no matter the level of experience, is the key to success. 

The platform is based on Node and Vue, we use GraphQL for our API and our servers are running on AWS.

Who we are: 

We are a young and fast growing start-up, working passionately to build a high quality service and an expansive global company. We value personal qualities at least as much as background and experiences. We put a lot of effort in building a trusting culture where we collaborate to achieve our high goals and have fun together, yet in a professional environment. We know the importance of talking about our mistakes to learn from them. By doing so we constantly develop as individuals, as a team as well as a company. 

We still have a lot of things to achieve and you'll be a vital player when implementing some of these parts. The product is still new and the parts you will be involved in building will be business essential.You need to be comfortable in a changing environment where you will be challenged and also challenge your colleagues. You are expected to take ownership and have a curiosity regarding how we can continue to develop our e-commerce platform. 

The person we are looking for: 

  • We are open for both junior and senior applicants, as long as you have some experience of developing a product in a professional context  
  • Have previous experience working with Javascript frameworks,  preferably Node and Vue 
  • Have experience of developing API’s  
  • Are experienced in tools like Git, Composer, npm, Gulp and WebPack
  • Have some knowledge of cloud platforms, preferably Amazon AWS since it is the current platform for FirstVet's services
  • Are fluent in English since it is the official FirstVet working language. Since the current position is situated in Stockholm we also see that it is an advantage if you speak or have at least a good understanding of Swedish 
  • Have a relevant degree within software development 

Apart from the above mentioned requirements we also see that it is a plus if you have an interest in animals since we have the pleasure of having plenty of dogs at the office. So, if you want to take part in changing how pet care is provided worldwide – FirstVet might be the right place for you!

During this specific time we are working both remote and at the office.

So, if you like cuddling with dogs, having sea view coffee breaks (at least in the Stockholm office) and want to take part in changing the veterinary industry for the better – FirstVet might be the right place for you!
