Hello, we're PetsApp 👋🐱🐶

We’re building the future of pet care

Pet owners use PetsApp to chat with the vet team that they know and trust. They can get advice on any issues their furry friends are having.

This is what happened since we launched:

To date, we’ve raised over $4m investment too, and our investors are some of the best in Europe. They’ve taken early positions in companies like Contentful, Auth0, Away, Slack, Typeform, Calm and many other well-known, fantastic teams – so we're in good company.

Why you should join us 🤩

PetsApp is looking for for a pioneer who will launch and grow the data function as the company scales. This person will initially be responsible for bringing data and reporting capabilities in-line with the types of questions we regularly ask of our data. As the reporting and insight competency increases the scope for more science backed reporting and experiments increases - think unstructured chat classification. 

This role is great for you if... 🔍

  • You have previously setup (or been part of setting up) such reporting capabilities at a pre-series B company before and you want to do it again while applying everything you learnt

  • You pride yourself on your data intuition

  • You’re comfortable working cross functionally, helping other teams understand the data their function produces and how best to interrogate it

  • Keep it simple stupid - you know when to apply science and when to not

  • You’re opinionated on the best tools to get your work done

Why you should join us ⚡

  • You have learnings from previous experience you want to now apply from scratch as the sole data person

  • You thrive in an environment where the output of your work is highly consequential to the direction of the company

  • You want autonomy in how you pick which experiments to run

The package 😻

  • 🌴 33 day paid holiday a year (including public holidays)

    • Plus the ability to buy or sell up to 5 days per year

  • Remote-friendly team

    • You just need to be based in Europe

  • 💸 £80k salary

    • This is the value for this role, so even if it’s not what you’re on now, it’s what we’re offering!

  • 📜 Equity in PetsApp

  • 📈 Learning budget

  • 👩‍💻 Pick your own tech

  • 🥳 Remote first team activities

Life as part of the pack 🎉

You’ll have noticed we don’t talk about things like your birthday off, or a working-from-home allowance. Really, you’re the best person to tell us how you do your best work, and we want you to be responsible for how you spend your days off and your own money. This is why we have a generous holiday allowance and above market rate salaries.

When we talk about flexibility, we mean it too. That’s why you’ll see our Slack statuses changing to 🚴 or 🚶 when we’re out cycling in Regents Park or hiking in the Peak District. Sometimes you might even see a 💤 too. Other times you might not see it, but we'll be out picking up our kids from nursery or school, taking the dog for a walk or just sitting down for lunch with the family.

That doesn't mean we don't come together as a team though. Expect the occasional yoga session, cocktail making event, or movie night. These are just some of the things that our pack likes to do together. If we're not doing something that makes everyone’s experience as good as it could be, we want to hear what else we could be doing!

At PetsApp, we're building a team of people passionate about pets. People of any gender, race, religion, sexual-orientation or ethnicity are welcome. We’re already doing amazing work together to deliver on our mission of improving the lives of the world's pets. Because we're still pretty small, your voice will have a direct impact on the way we live our values and grow as a company.
