At Otto, we're building your pet's wellness team, bringing together 24/7 vet care and curated resources. Our vision is to build the “stack” for pet parenting. We want to centralize and personalize everything you need to be a successful paw-rent.

As a software engineer at Otto, you’ll help us lay the groundwork for our future engineering force and build the foundations of the next series of products we’ll build for pets around the world.

You’re a good fit if:

  • You can wear many hats; we’re a small company with a core focus on product-driven insights—we want you to be a part of the decision-making process the whole way

  • You’ve got experience working across the JS stack; we’re looking for past projects or work experience using React and Typescript before.

  • You have a solid understanding of production-level development principles: test-driven development, CI/CD, and Git

  • You’re not afraid to branch out of your core competencies to further our product; egoless development is a core part of our culture

You will:

  • Be responsible for crucial components of our product strategy

  • Design & execute on new product specifications across the development stack

  • Experiment with integrations and feature requests from partners

  • Build out clean, user-friendly interfaces with minimal bloat, using modern tooling like GraphQL, React Native & Typescript

  • Pick up dog poop 💩 (sometimes 😉)
