We are looking for a product designer who is a fantastic storyteller and has an eye for sharp visual design with motion graphics skills. You make your ideas flow in a manner that automatically translates into the goals of the company. You care deeply about your customers, always looking for ways to craft simple solutions out of complex problems, based on data and user research. We’re looking for a person that enjoys collaborating with product, engineering, data, brand, and marketing.  

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

 

What you’ll do here

We’d love to hear from you if you

  • Can show shipped design work that was designed by you, rather than a team of 15 designers
  • Have experience designing within and evolving design systems.
  • Love best practices as much as an opportunity to try something just crazy enough to work.

  • Understand how modern technologies are used with design (HTML, CSS, JS)
  • Believe you still have a lot to learn.
  • Know how to measure outcomes and guide design work to ensure energy is aligned with strategy.
  • Love dogs.

About The Farmer’s Dog

The Farmer’s Dog exists to simplify giving every dog their best life. Completely reimagining what pet food is, how it’s made, and how it’s delivered. We recently raised our Series B and are backed by the early investors of Warby Parker, Dollar Shave Club, Sweetgreen, and Glossier.

Our company was launched after our Co-founder, Brett’s, battle to cure the stomach issues of his Rottweiler, Jada. He quickly realized just how broken the commercial pet food industry was - even the “organic” and “natural” varieties proved to be heavily processed - and it was only when his vet recommended a fresh, home-cooked diet that Jada began to improve and was eventually cured. Through a combination of proprietary technology and a lot of heart, our direct-to-consumer service was born.

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.

Only “dream job” applicants, please. #mustlovedogs
