The Farmers 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 B & are backed by early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, & Glossier.

Join The Farmers Dog team as we continue to figure out ways of bringing peace of mind to customers, health to their companions, & much-needed change to the way people feed & care for their pets.


The Farmers Dog is looking for a software engineer to help build out our subscription, e-commerce platform from the ground up to support our numerous personalized orders shipping out each week.
