Blue Door Veterinary Services Careers Available

We’re always interested in hearing from candidates interested in our unique business model. Resumes/CVs and Cover Letters can be submitted to our email jobs@bluedoorvet.com

We currently have several openings as we are growing!

Operations Manager: 

Blue Door Veterinary Services has an opening for an Operations Manger to help us grow our woman-owned mobile veterinary business in Portland, Oregon.  We are looking for someone who is entrepreneurial, excited about developing systems and protocols, loves problem solving, who is proactive and can work independently.   Since we are growing and developing this role to fill a need, you have the opportunity to essentially write your own job description.  Help us define this new role in our organization and help our company grow.  The position is intended to be a mixture of in clinic and work-from-home.  A good candidate will be an adaptable communicator – able to adapt to the team and individuals’ needs for different types of communication (email, text, phone etc – and how to motivate employees individually to help each of our team members grow within our team).  You’ll be the “second in command” so must have a strong work ethic and managerial skills.  Experience in veterinary medicine is not required. 

Areas of responsibility will include (but are not limited to): 

  • Clinic Operations – appointment scheduling, client interactions/conflict resolution, inventory management, vendor management 
  • HR – employee management including scheduling, hiring/ firing, and employee retention/motivation programs
  • Marketing/PR –  updating website, social media, and blog posts 
  • Project management – working on various projects that relate to the maintenance, growth and development of the business and staff members (ie looking into cost savings protocols, new staff benefits, researching problems/ projects/ creating strategic plans for growth, etc.)
  • Financial management – creating and reading reports, liaising between CPA, bookkeeper, and owner, and helping to create and stick to an operating budget

We’re not your standard vet clinic- we are breaking industry norms and working to create a stable, small business atmosphere even as we grow.   As more veterinary clinics are moving to corporate style medicine, we want clients to feel like we’re their family vet even as we grow to be able to serve more clients and pets.  At Blue Door, we are always looking for new ways to do things – not just sticking to the status quo. We are a strictly mobile veterinary practice serving the greater Portland, OR metropolitan area.  Our clientele is made up of pet owners who are dedicated to their pets and want to be involved in their pets’ care. We pride ourselves as a clinic in being transparent and complete with regards to all options for our patients and working as a team with our clients for the best outcome for their animals.  Currently, we have two mobile clinics with intention to grow to at least 3 vans in the Portland area and possibly extending to other locales as we grow.

Education/Experience Requirements: 

  • Bachelor’s Degree or higher (Masters or higher preferred) 
  • Management experience > 1 year 
  • Operations experience > 1 year
  • Experience with Quick Books Online a plus 
  • COVID-19 vaccinations required

Salary range $55,000-$65,000 annually commensurate with experience.  Benefits negotiable. 

Send you resume/CV, cover letter indicating your interest, and recommendation letters to jobs@bluedoorvet.com by 1/2/2022.  Candidates will be evaluated and contacted by  2/1/2022.  

If you aren’t in the market for a new job but have a candidate you think would be perfect, we are offering a $500 referral fee for you if your referral gets hired!

Associate Veterinarian: 

Do you like the idea of reducing stress for yourself, your clients and your patients?  Do you like creating relationships with your clients and patients and having time to explain things fully for best treatment compliance?  Are you tired of seeing appointments every 15 minutes and not having a chance to complete your thoughts about a case before moving on to the next one?  We can help!  

Blue Door Veterinary Services is a locally woman-owned, strictly mobile veterinary practice servicing the greater Portland, OR metropolitan area.  If you are a veterinarian interested in the mobile model who is looking to work part or full-time (FT is 4 days per week) and have the potential to grow into a fully stocked mobile veterinary unit of your own, then we are the practice for you. We’re not your standard vet clinic- we are breaking industry norms and working to create a stable, small business atmosphere even as we grow.   As more veterinary clinics are moving to corporate style medicine, we want clients to feel like we’re their family vet even as we grow to be able to serve more clients and pets.  At Blue Door, we are always looking for new ways to do things – not just sticking to the status quo. We practice high quality, full-service veterinary care for predominately small animals but have been seeing more pet chickens and goats over the last couple of years as well.  There are options to see other exotics or offer complimentary medicine as well depending on your interests.  

We have two mobile veterinary clinics at this time – one is a 26’ long vehicle with all the general practice bells and whistles including: on-board Abaxis blood machines (CBC and Chemistry), a digital x-ray system, digital dental x-rays and a separate surgery suite inside the truck with isoflurane anesthesia in addition to a modest pharmacy, vaccinations and treatments options for our daily sick and preventative care appointments.  Our other vehicle is a Sprinter sized van – about 22 ft long and has most of the same equipment/medications but no separate surgery suite.  Each mobile clinic has an awesome tech/assistant to ride along with the doctor daily, and we have remote receptionists managing most of our client call volume/e-mails.  Our clientele is made up of pet owners who are dedicated to their pets and want to be involved in their pets’ care.  We pride ourselves as a clinic in being transparent and complete with regards to all options for our patients and working as a team with our clients for the best outcome for their animals.  With such complete and open communication between staff and clients, we get really good compliance with treatment plans overall and wonderful, trusting relationships with our clients.  

We are looking for a self-motivated veterinarian with 3+ years of experience as you will have a fair amount of autonomy as the only veterinarian on the mobile truck each day.  You certainly aren’t left on your own though, there is always a phone-a-friend option if you need support!  Our goal is to expand to multiple mobile veterinary clinics and possibly into Vancouver, WA over the next few years.  Experience driving large vehicles and active DVM license in Washington are a plus, but are not required. Compensation dependent on P/T vs F/T status and is commensurate with experience (range $55,000-$110,000). PTO accrued based on hours worked. CE allowance and licensure reimbursement available.  Student loan repayment benefit available as well.  Other benefits available as negotiated.  

Requirements: 

  • Oregon DVM License in good standing
  • Active DEA license 
  • Personal Professional Liability Insurance
  • Oregon Driver’s License 
  • COVID-19 Vaccination
