The Farmer’s Dog is revolutionizing the pet food industry. In an industry with no regulations, constant recalls, and rampant misleading advertising, The Farmer’s Dog is here to be the hero brand that all pet parents have been waiting for. After decades of big brands only innovating on marketing and making zero improvements to the quality of their food, we decided to make a change. As the first ever health focused innovation in the pet food industry, The Farmer’s Dog is utilizing its proprietary technology to create the healthiest food for dogs by delivering freshly-made human-grade food to our customers within days of cooking. Our meal plans are vet-developed, personalized, and pre-portioned specifically for each dog.
We launched after our co-founder’s battle to cure his dog’s stomach issues illustrated the power of fresh food. After testing every pet food on the market without success, Brett resorted to a fresh, home-cooked diet at his vet’s recommendation. The results were staggering — Jada was cured. Once he realized how poor the state of commercial pet food was, he team up with Jonathan to develop a fresh alternative and create the product they wished existed for their own dogs (and dogs everywhere).
Utilizing smart technology and an innovative business model, we are bringing peace of mind to our customers, health to their companions, and fundamentally changing the way people think about feeding their pets.
Our investors have also backed companies like Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker, Glossier, Casper, and Sweetgreen. We expect only “dream job” applicants, please. #mustlovedogs
We’re building a subscription based e-commerce business from the ground up and have plenty of interesting problems to solve. Our aim is to offer a seamless subscription experience through on-time production, customized products and best in class customer support.
How are we different from a regular e-commerce shop? Each and every one of our customers has a completely unique subscription plan and shipping frequency. Every individual pack of food is produced for a specific dog and has the pet’s name and date of manufacturing printed straight on the pack. The average time from production to delivery is less than two weeks.
We’re looking for somebody who’s comfortable taking the creative lead and has experience designing complex web applications and dashboards. There’s ample room for growth within the company, and our ideal candidate has ambitions beyond web design. Our creative playing field encompasses packaging design, print, illustrations, and much more. Experience and understanding of these fields is a huge plus.
We like to create interactive prototypes with Invision for desktop and mobile before moving things to the implementation phase. The development team then uses Avocode to export the assets and implement design specifications.
You should have experience with:
- Web design with Sketch
- Creating interactive Invision prototypes
- Creating vector illustrations with Adobe Illustrator or Sketch
- Able to implement designs in HTML and CSS
- Web animations
- Print design
What you could be working on:
- Establishing design guidelines and brand identity
- Designing and prototyping the UX/UI for our customer portal
- Designing and prototyping a back-office tool to better support operational workflows
- Creating responsive email templates
- Designing and prototyping an order delivery time and date picker
- Designing food labels
Please provide a link to your Dribbble or Behance profile. If you've built interactive prototypes using Invision, Marvel or other similar tools you're encouraged to share such projects.
