Dandy is transforming the massive ($200B) but antiquated dental industry. Backed by some of the world's leading venture capital investors, we are on an ambitious mission to integrate and simplify every function of the dental practice through technology. By building the operating system for every dental office in America, Dandy is empowering dentists with technology, innovation, and world-class support to achieve more for their practice, their people, and their patients.

Our stack: TypeScript, NodeJS, NestJS, React/Redux, PostgreSQL, GCP

  • Comfort working in a highly agile, intensely iterative software development process.

  • Effective communication skills: Regularly achieve consensus with peers and clear status updates.

  • Experience owning a project from concept to production, including proposal, discussion, and execution.

  • Self-motivated and self-managing, with excellent organizational skills.
