Statistician

WHO WE ARE

The Farmer’s Dog exists to simplify giving every dog their best life. First up? Completely reimagining what pet food is, how it’s made, and how it’s delivered. We recently raised our Series B and are backed by the early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, and Glossier.

Our company was launched after our Co-founder, Brett’s, battle to cure the stomach issues of his Rottweiler, Jada. He quickly realized just how broken the commercial pet food industry was - even the “organic” and “natural” varieties proved to be heavily processed - and it was only when his vet recommended a fresh, home-cooked diet that Jada began to improve and was eventually cured. Through a combination of proprietary technology, and a lot of heart, our direct-to-consumer service was born.

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.

Only “dream job” applicants, please. #mustlovedogs

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?

Matt

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.

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.

Adrian

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.

Brett

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).
