Job description

Voted one of INC.’s Fastest Growing Companies in 2022, IndeVets is a company devoted to making the lives of veterinarians better. Surprisingly, vets are overworked, burned out, and struggle to balance the extreme demands of their work with family and their personal lives. Compounding this, they are burdened with extraordinary student debt, and many report that being a vet isn’t what they expected or dreamed it would be. IndeVets has created a whole new way to practice that puts vets first. We partner with forward-thinking practices that share our high clinical standards and our values because we believe vets deserve way more than a job that pays the bills; they deserve a job they love.
