About us

Since 2013, we have set out to improve the lives of pets and their owners. Ten years later, there’s four hundred of us working across five sites and two countries, trying to change the world of pet food for good. We produce physical products, digital products and platforms in an innovative and unique environment.

Our colleagues tell us it's our culture that makes tails.com a great place to work. Whether you love pets or not, choosing to work here means you can truly be yourself in a role that will allow you to develop and do the best work of your life.

Flexible working at tails.com

We understand the importance of being a flexible business and work hard to help our employees experience the right work-life blend.

With this in mind, we have various benefits that support this. Whether you’re an early riser or a night owl, we want you to work within hours that fit your lifestyle, whilst also supporting your team. We offer a flexible start time for most employees between 7am-10am, and a flexible finish time of 4pm-7pm. Our Customer Experience phone teams have flexible hours between a start time of 8am-9am and finish time of 5pm- 6pm to make sure we can give our customer great support.

Many of us have embraced the ability to work from different places over the last few years, and to enable that at tails.com we have a work from abroad benefit, giving our team the opportunity to work from a different country for up to 2 weeks every 6 months. 

A new and exciting benefit we are currently trialing is a 9/10 day fortnight, meaning that every other Friday we give as many team members as possible a day off for their wellbeing, without a change in pay and leave allowance. Some use this day to decompress, some do life admin, some even use them to fly a plane.

Flexible working means something different for everyone. We know that one benefit won’t suit us all, and so we have tried to find as many game changing ways as possible to help folks be their best selves at work and at home.
