We are a tech-centric startup, using the power of technology combined with applied nutritional science to change the world of dog food for good.


Our tech stack is mainly Python (Flask + SQLAlchemy + Celery) along with a smattering of Go, with Redis, MySQL and S3 for data storage. The platform itself is comprised of multiple applications and services all hosted in our AWS VPC on a mixture of bare EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, AWS Lambda and (increasingly) EC2 Container Service. We have a propensity to ship early and often, so we push multiple deployments live per day through our CI/CD pipelines.

Our technical co-founders come from senior hands-on positions at Amazon, Arts Alliance Media, and Zoopla, so we have a great software engineering ethos and it's an excellent environment in which to thrive as a developer.
