The Farmer’s Dog was created to radically improve the $90 billion global pet food industry — starting with a subscription service that sends freshly-made food directly to customers’ doors. Long term, our aim is to simplify every part of pet care, bettering the lives of the animals who make our lives better. We recently raised our Series B and are backed by early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, and Glossier.

Join The Farmer’s Dog team as we continue to figure out ways of bringing peace of mind to customers, health to their companions, and much-needed change to the way people feed and care for their pets.



We’re looking for an analytical and motivated Acquisition Associate to manage The Farmer’s Dog’s Search Marketing (Google, YouTube, Bing, Yahoo, etc.) and Marketing Analytics (regular reporting) programs. You’ll be tasked with evolving and optimizing crucial facets of the marketing mix at an incredibly exciting brand that’s changing the way people feed their pets.

In this role, you’ll work closely with teams across the business to understand the efficacy of our marketing efforts while working daily to implement a world-class paid search program that fuels customer growth while clearly cementing The Farmer’s Dog as an authoritative resource for pet health & wellness information.

We’re looking for someone with hands-on experience with SEM, strong prioritization skills, top-notch analytical abilities and a natural hunger to learn.

  • Develop daily and weekly KPI goals for core channels.
  • Manage our relationship with any and all relevant third-party search partners.

An Insider's view of The Farmer's Dog

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's so refreshing to be able to walk into my job knowing that I'm truly making a difference. Every person on our team believes in our product and mission, so motivation and passion comes organically. Did I mention that our office is full of dogs?


Customer Experience

What projects are you most excited about?

We are changing the way people think about pet food by delivering fresh, healthy meals for dogs in personalized meal plans. Supply chain is exciting because it's basically the key differentiating factor for how we can be the most cost efficient, really impact the consumer experience for the better, and always make sure the dogs get fed.


Head of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

I feel a crazy opportunity to grow my career the way I want to at The Farmer's Dog. We are encouraged to take risks and are surrounded by genuine, loving, and compassionate people. The culture is supportive of both dog and human health and wellness, and I love that I get to help dogs live longer lives with my dog, Emmy, by my side.


Growth Manager

What is your vision for the company?

The Farmer's Dog is on a mission to change the way people think about feeding their pets. Our goal is to educate & give people the tools to give their pets the healthiest diet. We believe that once the world is educated about fresh food, people will stop feeding their pets processed food and the life expectancy for the entire species will increase.


Co-Founder & Head of Community

What does your typical day look like?

As CEO, I spend my days making the hard decisions, hiring the best people, protecting the team, and making sure the company is financially sound. I also get to choose which dogs are allowed in the office (all of them).
