Business Development Manager

Full Time. Perth, Western Australia

Does the prospect of building something from the ground up excite you? Are you entrepreneurial, love challenges, and believe that technology can improve the world? Do you want to work on exciting projects while learning something new every day?

Be a part of a highly motivated team that’s shaping and developing ahead-of-the-curve systems, tools and products that are empowering veterinary healthcare providers globally.

VetDB is a West Australian technology company that’s looking at healthcare differently.

Understanding the immense value that medical data plays in supporting an efficient and effective healthcare ecosystem, is knowing the critical importance of data’s accuracy, validity and availability at the point of care. Veterinary medical data practices are in poor shape, which presents a unique opportunity to make a significant difference. VetDB is on a mission to redefine how medical data is captured and managed. Our purpose is to improve the lives of patients and those entrusted with their care.

The products VetDB has developed are making a profound difference in the health and wellbeing of animals. By linking patients to their correct medical data, we improve clinic processes, eliminate data inaccuracies and promote health information exchange beyond the veterinary practice.

VetDB is working with leading vets and specialists automating their daily work with accurate, easy-to-use Apps and data integrations.
