A fresh take on dog food.

Butternut Box

At Butternut Box we make fresh, home-cooked dog food, perfectly portioned and delivered direct to our customer's doors. We believe dogs deserve better and in order to do that, no matter the role or location, we need a team of forward-thinking, driven people who love dogs as much as we do.

Employee reviews

Butternut Box's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

I'm always excited when people ask me what I do for a living, because every time I get to say I love my job at ButternutBox!

I love working at Butternut, I am supported and encouraged to go beyond where I would in another working environment. The commitment to learning and development as well as social connection is brilliant.

I was already extremely satisfied with the culture at Butternut and the the amount of flexibility and autonomy they provide, but I was truly blown away by their support throughout my pregnancy, maternity leave and re-onboarding. I was given the space, tools and guidance to continue to do my best work while being able to prioritise my and my baby's health and happiness.

Constantly surrounded by wonderful, smart, fun people and their even more wonderful dogs! Amazing growth potential and very fast paced environment. You'll be part of the most inspirational team anyone could hope for.

It's like one big dog-mad family! The atmosphere is lively, supportive, and everyone goes the extra mile to reach our goals. I can't picture myself working anywhere else.

About us

At Butternut, we put the food back into dog food. We believe dogs deserve to eat the healthiest, most natural and tastiest food with none of the nasties. That’s why we make freshly prepared dog food. Cooked like you would at home. Delivered in perfect portions.

Our goal is to help dogs live healthier, happier and longer lives whilst leaving humans smiling after every interaction. We’ve come a long way since our co-founders (Kev & Dave) hand-delivered the first Butternut Box, we now feed a lot of dogs across the UK, Ireland, Poland and Benelux- but we want to feed dogs everywhere. And to do this, we need a team of brilliant people who share that ambition to come and work with us. 

Certified B Corp 🌱

Flexible working at Butternut Box

At Butternut, we value flexibility and in-person interactions. We know one-size doesn't fit all. Our approach is synchronized hybrid; it means that teams work from the office on the same set days during the week, and the rest of the time they can work from home or away from the office. We also offer 'remote first periods' at different points throughout the year where there is no requirement for our squad members to work from the office, which allows for additional flexibility and autonomy.

We also have a working remotely abroad policy for when you want to venture a little further than your couch 🏝

What do we think of Butternut Box?

We love Butternut Box's mission and their approach to flexibility. They're list of benefits is huge and their FlexScore is one to shout about!

Hi 👋 I'm Sophie, a Senior Recruiter at Butternut. Max & I originally joined the squad in February 2022 to build out our Tech & Product teams, but I now support all areas of the business. I’m based in Bristol, UK, and mainly work remotely, which Max really appreciates. I love meeting potential Butternutters and providing support, guidance, and hopefully a laugh or two throughout the hiring process.
