Who We Are

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. Backed by the early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, and Sweetgreen, we've raised over $100M in funding and seek to build a company as healthy as the dogs we feed.

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. 


Where You'll Come In

The Farmer’s Dog is on a mission to help channel the unconditional love we all have for our pets into uncomplicated care. The Data Strategy and Insights (“DSI”) department supports the entirety of the company, ensuring that every decision at The Farmer’s Dog is made with optimal insights and minimal friction. As a Data Product Manager, you will work with our data engineering team to support data analytics and data science efforts in solving high-priority business problems. Your work will also have a strong influence on customer experience, and help to optimize various aspects of operations, experimental design and analysis, and you will get to interact with all corners of our business including Growth, Operations, Finance, and Customer Experience (“CX”). 

As a Data Product Manager to the Data Engineering team at The Farmer’s Dog, you will be a strong collaborator with the many amazing people throughout the company. Data Engineering at The Farmer’s Dog is 90% internal-facing, so you will work closely with our DSI team and business stakeholders to identify high-value work, with an eye towards the actions and decisions it enables. Within DSI, you will work with our team of data engineers, data analysts, and data scientists to accomplish business goals. This includes collaboratively brainstorming good/better/best solutions and orchestrating and conducting all the moving parts in order to drive projects to ultimate value.

This role is based in NYC and reports to the Head of Data Strategy and Insights.

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).
