Senior Backend Software Engineer

Our exciting series C client in NYC created a subscription-based e-commerce platform for dog owners. Now, dog owners have the entirety of their dog’s nutrition completely taken care of with maximum peace of mind. With this business model and consistently triple digit growth, healthy financials allow this company to continue to disrupt pet nutrition and care for years to come.

Backed by the early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, and Glossier, The Farmer’s Dog has raised over $100M in funding and seeks to build a company as healthy as the dogs they feed. #LongLiveDogs
