We're looking for exceptionally talented and passionate people to join our growing team.

About the Position

As a Design Engineer at Vetcove, you’ll sit at the intersection of design and engineering. We believe the best user experiences, especially for our furry friends and the veterinarians that care for them, arise from engineers being intimately involved in the design process from the very first wireframe through pixel perfection. You’ll work closely with the design team to brainstorm and iterate on feature enhancements and new user experiences, ensuring a high quality implementation. You’ll be responsible for the highest level of polish across Vetcove’s desktop and mobile applications.

  • Collaborate closely with product designers in designing new features

  • Bring Figma designs to life by implementing modular, reusable React components

  • Implement interactions using highly flexible and performant CSS code

  • Experiment with animations and micro-interactions that are best prototyped through code
