Mobile app developer to FirstVet's core service team

If you love to solve problems, write robust, well-tested code of high quality and constantly strive to improve yourself, your work and your colleagues, this can be the role for you.

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: 

As mobile app developer at FirstVet, you will be a part of our fantastic product and tech team where you together with your teammates continuously strive to make FirstVet's apps and services even more awesome.  You will work in a small agile tech team together with the Tech Lead and other software engineers, solely concentrated on improving Firstvet's Mobile apps. To be successful in this role, we believe that you actively challenge yourself as well as your colleagues in improving our services. You can independently drive technical solutions from start to completion but you see the advantages of teamwork and that sharing best practice with your colleagues regardless of the level of experience is a key to success. 

You love to solve problems and write robust, well-tested and maintainable code of high quality. You have a good eye for UI/UX design and get excited about creating a great experience for our users across the world. Currently our platform is based on frameworks like PHP/Laravel, Vue, NativeScript, Angular and TypeScript. 

This is a full-time role based in our office in Stockholm. 

Your responsibilities: 

  • Design and develop our iOS and Android mobile applications, written in NativeScript, Angular and TypeScript.
  • Work in close cooperation with our product team to create intuitive and engaging UI/UX solutions.
  • Improve and streamline our mobile application delivery pipeline.
  • Make sure that we have good metrics, monitoring and alerting in place.

Who we are: 

You’ll be part of a fantastic group of people who believe that having fun together in a professional environment builds a long-lasting company culture where everyone gives 100%. We are a young and fast-growing startup, working passionately to build a high-quality service and a global company. We value personal qualities at least as much as background and experiences.

The person we are looking for:

To be successful in this role, we believe that you are a team player who always strives to develop yourself as well as others and where an outstanding result achieved together always is the goal.  You have a humble personality, great interpersonal skills and an ability to spread energy around you. Apart from that we also believe that you…

  • Probably have 3-5 years of experience working with mobile development. 
  • Have solid frontend development skills in JavaScript or TypeScript, preferably in a framework such as Angular, Vue, React or similar.
  • Have experience of interacting with RESTful APIs
  • Have a user-centric approach with a good understanding of UI/UX  
  • Speak English fluently, since that is the official FirstVet working language. We also see that at least a good understanding of Swedish is beneficial since the position is located in Stockholm. 

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.

Workplace and Culture

FirstVet’s team players come from a wide range of backgrounds, including veterinarians, marketing gurus, investment professionals, pet care experts and growth hacking ninjas, resulting in a dynamic and collaborative workplace. We believe in achieving goals together by including everyone's point of view, and while doing this, have loads of fun. For us, personal qualities are just as important as background and experience.

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!
