Integration Software Engineer

Join us in changing how pet care is provided worldwide.

FirstVet is the first truly digital veterinary clinic. We let pet owners meet licensed veterinarians via their mobile, tablet or laptop. 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:

At FirstVet you will work in a small, agile team with a lot of responsibility and great opportunities to influence technical solutions, strategies and processes. As a member of the tech team you will work closely with other software engineers and the product team, and you are jointly responsible for taking FirstVet’s services to a global audience. 

Currently our platform is using a tech stack that includes AWS, PHP, MySQL and frameworks like NativeScript, Angular, Vue and Laravel

To be successful in this role you need to be able to work independently, have great communication skills and drive technical solutions from start to completion. This position requires you to be technically savvy and to maintain a strong relationship with our partners to develop the best possible solutions.

Responsibilities include:

  • Technical integrations with our partners such as insurance companies, kennel clubs and interest organisations on all markets  
  • Work collaboratively with our Head of Strategic Partnership and Country Managers to plan and perform pre-implementation activities
  • Plan, design, develop, implement and improve technical integrations
  • Create and maintain a scalable framework around building and maintaining an increasing number of integrations across multiple markets
  • Communicate, collaborate and join in on meetings with partners to ensure the optimal solution for all parties

Who are we:

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 believe that having fun together in a professional environment will build a long lasting company culture where everyone give 100%.

The person we are looking for has:

5+ years of relevant systems engineering experience, preferably in the role of technical architect, backend developer or system administrator

  • Experience working with object-oriented programming, preferably PHP
  • Experience with cloud platforms, preferably Amazon AWS
  • Experience consuming or designing public APIs, external systems, and web services for commercial applications
  • Knowledge of SOAP, WSDL, REST, XML and JSON technologies
  • Understanding of OWASP, SAML, Oauth SSL and other security tools, technologies and guidelines
  • Knowledge of networking and communications protocols (e.g. HTTP, HTTPS, AS2, FTP, SFTP, FTPS) including security, certificates, and keys
  • Knowledge in Linux commands/shell scripting
  • Experience of test-driven development
  • Great communication skills
  • An interest in animals is always nice, since we have the pleasure of having plenty office dogs
