Who We Are

The Farmer’s Dog was born from a mission to change the landscape of pet health, providing dogs and their humans with honest, smart, and simple care. We’re starting by radically improving the $90 billion pet food industry, replacing bulk bags of highly-processed mystery pellets with a personalized subscription service that sends healthy, freshly-made dog food directly to customers’ doors. Our ultimate goal is to create innovative, delightful experiences across all aspects of pet care, and we believe our direct-to-consumer business model, holistic approach to growth, and dynamic culture uniquely position us to shepherd this backwards industry into the future.

To date, The Farmer’s Dog has delivered over 200 million meals nationwide and raised over $150M in funding to help us build a company as healthy as the dogs who are eating those meals. Join us as we continue to develop 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.

  • Provide logistical care and support for our CEO’s dog Buddy when needed.
  • Flex to complete special projects as requested or pressing needs outside regular office hours when necessary.

We're Excited About You Because

  • You proactively seek out opportunities to make valuable contributions and be useful.
  • You are a polished and professional communicator, both spoken and written.
  • You can easily balance multiple priorities and tasks while working with little supervision, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks.
  • You can quickly shift gears and stay on top of all pressing items with composure and a positive demeanor.
  • You are a thoughtful gatekeeper, not afraid to question current processes and activate improvements along the way.
  • You are excited about working in a dog-friendly office.
