Vectech develops AI-driven precision environmental health products for monitoring arthropods (mosquitoes, ticks, etc) to bring better data to public health systems.
What will you do?
Responsibilities may include:
VecTech is a start-up, and though we are very focused on our mission, the path to achieve it is dynamic. This means that responsibilities within the organization are dynamic, and things will change; you will likely have to learn things rapidly on the job, and be pushed outside of your comfort zone, but that is the nature of startups. We find it exhilarating and we hope you will join us!
What’s it like working with Vectech?
As a social enterprise, Vectech cares deeply about people. We try to create an open and inclusive workplace, which operates on trust, care, and passion for what we do. Work life balance is highly valued at Vectech, and we make space for that in our policies:
Who is Vectech?
Vectech is a for-profit social enterprise working on precision environmental health tools. We began our journey working to provide public health systems with better data on their mosquito populations. Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals in world, killing up to 500,000 people each year, hundreds of millions affected by the diseases they carry across high, middle, and low income countries. There are 3000 different species of mosquitoes, which carry different diseases and have different behaviors that call for different controls. Without quality data on where the mosquitoes are, what type they are, and how many they are, an organization cannot effectively protect public health and prevent disease. Our products help organizations identify mosquitoes in an affordable and timely manner with minimal expertise required, expanding accessibility to high quality integrated vector management. We have recently begun using similar methods to support public health efforts against ticks, a vector for Lyme disease, and also intend to braoden our work to environmental health monitoring for invasive species.
Join VecTech in delivering modern data tools to achieve a healthier, more sustainable global community.
We are looking for coding competency and a strong ability in design-oriented thinking.
Before the first interview, we will have a short take home question to asses basic coding skills. This will take 30 min, depending on your comfort level.
After this, the first interview will include a get-to-know-you portion, followed by a set of technical questions. The technical questions will try to assess understanding of critical concepts, and critical thinking skills.
The second phase will begin with a short take-home coding project (probable 1-3hrs). This can be done in , and will include code we provide for you to interface with. This will be followed by a second interview, in which we ask follow up questions about the choices you made and conceptual questions about the hypothetical project the code would function in.
Vectech is committed to providing the resources for our staff to be successful inside and outside of work. This includes traditional benefits like fully paid health, dental, and vision insurance, and professional development with our growing technical team. Work schedules are flexible, with remote or office based work depending on preference, and we will set you up with a wifi credit, company computer, and other home office resources if needed. Through our coaching/checkin model borrowed from local non-profits in Baltimore, we support employee driven professional development. As a young company with founders dedicated to building a more inclusive workplace, we aim to make Vectech a place where you can grow, advance, and become a leader on our team.
