  • 5+ years of relevant experience 
  • Solid regulatory knowledge related to Compensation and Benefits (e.g. ERISA, ACA, HIPAA, …)
  • Experience performing at least several of the following:
    • designing total rewards holistically, as well as understanding the trade-off decisions and ability to bring benchmarks, trend information, a point of view, and options.

An Insider's view of Farmer's Fridge

What are some social events your company does?

Working at a start-up can be a roller coaster, so we do our best to balance work & play. We have regular get-togethers including happy hours, mixers, and impromptu outings to celebrate the wins at the many restaurants & breweries in the area. We also throw a mean party, are 2018 kickball league champions and have yoga classes in the office monthly.

What does your typical day look like?

Given the fast-paced environment at the Fridge, things change so quickly around here. Each day comes with new projects and priorities - and no two days look the same. From meetings and calls to strategizing with the team, and travel, in the two years I've been here, it's safe to say that each day is different.

What makes someone successful on your team?

In a space dominated by big food players, we are building something truly innovative, and the response from the community reaffirms that we're on our way to helping people live healthier, happier lives. Challenges are met with optimism and passion instead of deep sighs and frustration, and the team really bands together to achieve shared goals.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I love coming to a place where my coworkers are supportive of my trials as a working Mom. Where time is made for quiet, uninterrupted work with weekly clarity breaks. Where we are fully supported in our projects. I get to bring all of myself to work, the Mom, the food lover, and the runner—and feel like each part is appreciated and celebrated!
