About us:

Farmer’s Fridge started with an idea in Chicago: make fresh, healthy food as accessible as a candy bar. Our handcrafted meals are delivered daily to over 240 smart fridges and can be conveniently purchased with a credit card or using our app. This is only possible because of our team of people: techies, logistical geniuses, folks who lovingly curate the food among many others.

Our people are friendly and are gifted with grit and passion. That’s exemplified in our work environment where things are always shifting. Forget open-door policies; we have an open layout where you can hear and see everything that’s going on.

And just like our open layout, we value an open mind, dedication to work, and a collaborative spirit. We hire based on those characteristics, our business’ needs, and your qualifications. We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind — in the hiring process or in the workplace.

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.

Eden

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.

Syed Shah

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!
