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. We recently raised our Series C, bringing our total funding to over $100M. We're backed by the early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, and Glossier, and are aiming 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

We are looking for a Director of Talent Acquisition to join our growing Human's team. In this role, you will own and enable The Farmer’s Dog’s ability to grow and scale by ensuring we have the right processes, people, and strategy in place to attract amazing humans! From designing our recruiting systems, to building out our Talent Acquisition team, to enabling diversity-focused sourcing strategies, you will ensure that all talent acquisition needs are met at The Farmer’s Dog. 

As the Director of Talent Acquisition, you will also be responsible for assessing the organization’s hiring goals in collaboration with our executives and department leaders. In the first six months in the role, you will review, revise, set, and monitor KPI’s and metrics to deeply understand our recruiting process effectiveness and areas in which we can improve. You will also oversee the Recruiting function, where you will foster an environment of continuous improvement in identifying advanced recruitment strategies, building talent pipelines, developing strong cross-functional relationships, and reporting on key recruitment and business metrics.

How You'll Make An Impact
  • Build and develop a strong talent acquisition team rooted in our values and comprised of consultative Recruiting partners who work with our leaders tactfully source, attract, assess, and hire to meet their hiring needs.
  • Drive rigor around talent acquisition processes focusing on continuous improvement to ensure that we have a consistently positive experience for candidates, hiring managers, and hiring teams.
  • Partner with HR Business Partners and leaders across the organization to help us evolve from single role focused recruiting to strategic workforce planning and prioritization, so we are ahead of the hiring curve needed for the organization to scale.
  • Align our hiring practices with our internal talent initiatives, with a strong focus on programs, processes, tools, and training that enable and support our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
  • Conceptualize recruiting dashboards and create the capability to make data-driven decisions and recommendations where possible, using reporting and metrics to drive improvements in recruiting processes.
  • Build and implement our employer branding strategy to position TFD as an amazing place to work
We're Excited About You Because
  • You go out of your way to bring happiness and joy to all -- especially in touchpoints throughout the hiring journey.
  • You act courageously, and you’re not afraid to learn from calculated risks rather than missed opportunities out of fear.
  • You believe “problems are treasures” and are open to new approaches, solving problems from first principles.
  • You can fly at 30,000 feet in crafting a long-term Talent Acquisition strategy one minute and then direct on the runway to help get things done.
  • You have managed $1M+ in overall recruiting budget and deployed resources effectively to ensure the business meets its external talent needs.
  • You have a successful track record of building and developing fantastic talent teams in high growth organizations, and you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves to do it.
  • You have 8+ years of experience working in or alongside Talent Acquisition and/or HR (focusing on Recruiting) and 4+ years of experience managing a team.

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.

Sana

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.

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).
