Who We Are

Who We Are

The Farmer’s Dog is the fastest growing pet health service company in the US, and was born from a mission to change the landscape of pet health, providing dogs and their humans with honest, smart, and simple care – a fresh proposition in an industry riddled with manipulative and misleading marketing. We’re starting by radically improving the $100 billion pet food market, replacing bulk bags of highly-processed pellets with a personalized subscription service that sends healthy, freshly-made dog food, balanced by top veterinary nutritionists, directly to customers’ doors. Our ultimate goal is to create innovative, honest, and delightful experiences across all aspects of pet care, and we believe our direct-to-consumer business model, holistic approach to growth, and dynamic and forward-thinking culture uniquely position us to shepherd this backwards industry into the future.

To date, The Farmer’s Dog has delivered hundreds of millions of 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 our 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 in search of a People Manager, CX to join the Customer Experience team at The Farmer’s Dog. The primary role of the People Manager is to train, coach and mentor their Group Leads and Associates.  In this, they are directly responsible for focusing their groups on delivering exceptional customer support- our top priority. Our people leaders should expect to spend time on initiatives that will enhance employee and customer experiences. Importantly, they will also support our associates and leads by handling raised issues, reducing our customer’s level of effort, and improving first contact resolution in all channels.

A successful People Manager should have the ability to proactively identify and solve problems. They will be able to mentor and help with career roadmap planning for both Group Leads and Associates. A People Manager is an exceptional communicator and collaborator; they understand that their strength is to bring people together to provide the best solutions for the tasks at hand.

People Managers will be expected to instill their direct reports and Associates with a sense of ownership for their individual and group results. They should be able to report out weekly accomplishments, key results and progress towards objectives. They will oversee a QA process driven in large part by the groups themselves, participate in ticket handling calibration sessions and provide guidance to all on standard processes.

This role will primarily be fulfilled during hours of 1-10 PM ET and regularly include one weekend day. As the Farmer’s Dog is growing quickly, it’s likely that CX hours of operations will expand to meet the needs of customers. People Managers will be expected to flex to work additional hours as needed.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
