Software Engineer

Crowd Cow - Seattle, WA

How many times in your career do you have the chance to create a ubiquitous consumer brand, build an entirely new supply chain, and change a big part of the food system?


Crowd Cow is a mission-driven startup founded in 2015 with the idea that the most important of food purchases – beef and other proteins – deserves to be associated with high-quality practices, total transparency, and close connection to the independent family farms producing the food. The Crowd Cow model isn’t the norm: In this country, 84% of beef comes from industrialized and factory processes that don’t benefit consumers, small-scale farmers or animals.

Today, Crowd Cow offers the most convenient and direct way to purchase from independent and family-owned farms, giving American consumers access to a world of craft beef more diverse and flavorful than most people realize. We’re also creating opportunities for the very best independent producers to reach more customers and to showcase their unique traditions in ways never possible via the internet. Crowd Cow has raised significant investment and has been featured in leading publications including the New York Times, the TODAY Show, Food & Wine, Forbes, the Guardian and more.
