Lead Veterinary Technician (Licensed)
Garden City, NY /
Clinic Team - Long Island /
Bond Vet is building the next generation of veterinary clinics from the ground up — and we’re looking for an experienced Lead Veterinary Technician (Licensed) to join our team. We currently have 4 locations in NYC and our next expansion will be to Long Island in the Nassau County area with an anticipated opening for the start of 2021!
We’re focused on urgent care, so we’re there for pets when they need us most. Our clinics are designed with pets and people in mind — they’re warm, friendly, and highly sniffable. We balance this design with a strong focus on technology, all built in-house, which means we can easily innovate our systems to improve the veterinary team, pet, and client experience.
Our Lead Veterinary Technician (Licensed) will help create a collaborative and efficient workplace. You’ll provide superior care for patients and lead by example. You should be client-oriented, an excellent communicator, and a natural mentor.
What You’ll Do:
- Work through leadership skills; training and mentorship provided.
- Be the medical and technical skill go-to person for process and protocol.
- Focus on training others medically while working on soft skill growth for yourself (communication, recruiting, training).
- Have a direct impact on the creation and training of your own team of LVT’s to work with.
- Work directly with your Medical Director to work to improve and enhance medicine.
- Support your team of Technicians and work to elevate them in the industry.
- Act as a liaison between clinic management and nurse team.
- A veterinary technician certification or licensure (CVT, RVT, LVT, or LVMT).
- 3+ years experience as a veterinary technician.
- Leadership experience.
You’ll Fit In If:
- You’re an animal lover.
- You’re a team player.
- You’re analytical and are driven by insights gleaned from data.
- You’re a hands-on leader who can bring a vision to life.
- You have intellectual curiosity when exploring issues.
- You don’t shy away from a thoughtful debate.
- You communicate clearly.
- You learn from your mistakes.
- You’re resourceful.
- We’re obsessed with pets. The love we feel for animals drives us to do our best. We work with initiative, positivity and warmth to bridge the gap between human and pet, focusing on wellness to keep a better, stronger bond.
- We work as a team. We’re knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about a better veterinary experience. We jump at the opportunity to help one another and seek out opportunities to team up on tasks. We’re all in this together — our team, pet owners, and the animal — and our success as a team hinges on all of us doing our best.
- We communicate clearly. We speak up, we do what we say, and we’re transparent and honest. We value clear, simple communication.
- We work happy. We bring a happy, positive attitude to work because it impacts the energy in the office.
- We’re empowered. We’re building a new kind of vet experience, and every team member is empowered to try new things and own their decision-making.
Our Promise to You:
- We trust you. This is not a place where we micromanage. We took a tip from Steve Jobs: “It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” We hire smart people and give them ownership.
- We offer great benefits (team-based bonuses, fantastic health, dental, and vision coverage, a One Medical membership, 16 week parental leave, continuing education, etc.). We don’t skimp here.
- Mentorship is our priority — our team members are never alone, and we tackle challenges and questions together.
We’re looking for people who are not just team players, but also leaders. If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably looking for something different than what’s already out there. So were we — let’s meet.
