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.

  • Share best practices and spread knowledge to the other members of the team

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.

The person we are looking for has:

  • 3+ years of recent experience of working with cloud based environments such as AWS

  • Good understanding of cloud security
  • Good communication skills
  • A humble personality
