At barqer, we’re changing all things pet by creating a pet-wise community. We want our team to feel fully supported, so you can better guide our community and thrive every step of the way.



Every 60 seconds, one animal suffers abuse.

More than 10 million animals every year die from abuse in the US alone. Pet owner ignorance (and irresponsibility) and cost of vet care are primary causes.

Barqer is about addressing the inefficiencies in veterinary care and improve the quality of pet parenting.

Progress so far:

Product launched in Feb this year to 100 beta users.

Since then, we’re iterating and optimizing app workflow based on customer feedback, behavior, and usage analysis.

In the meantime, we added over 12,000 potential users on the waitlist.

Final product will be launched in Oct 2022.

About Position

With Barqer's growth phase starting, we're looking for a hands-on, technical equity co-founder who is talented, good-natured, ego-less, and communicative.

You would commit to this venture in the same way that we have. That means you will receive a SUBSTANTIAL amount of stock ownership and become a co-founder/owner working in the early stages only for equity.

You can be part of the management team and will learn all about startups and venture capital. I can brief you more about this in a zoom call.

Please apply if the above resonates, as this is one of those "once in a career" offers.

Essential Functions/Role

You’re resourceful, curious, and opinionated. You’re ready to get things wrong and when you do, you are quick to make them right.

A typical day would involve executing product roadmap, making high-level decisions around product features/security, hiring and managing engineers, and developing Barqer's platform.
