About Chewy

At Chewy, we are disrupting the pet products industry by offering our customers the easiest way to get the premium products they want, backed by unparalleled service. We strive to win at everything we do, whether that means bending over backwards to gain our customers’ trust and loyalty or creating a creative and stimulating work environment for our employees. We aim to wow our customers—and our employees. Trust us. You will notice the difference from the moment you become a candidate with us.

Launched in 2011, we offer the personalized service of a neighborhood pet store alongside the convenience and speed of e-commerce. Customers love shopping our wide selection of products of more than 45,000 items (including our Private brands and prescription Rx food and Rx medication products), which we offer at competitive prices, fast 1-2 day shipping and around-the-clock convenience that only e-commerce can offer.

Chewy’s commitment to customer service is the core of our brand, and our customers love us for it. We “WOW” pet parents through 24/7 assistance, advice and encouragement every day of the year. We make pet parenting easy with our convenient Autoship subscription program—which allows our customers to schedule their orders, so they never run out of their pet food, supplies and medication they need.

As an e¬-commerce company, product innovation drives our operations, and our team is constantly striving to find new and better ways to improve our customers’ experience. From an easy¬ to¬ navigate website and highly¬ rated mobile apps, to detailed order tracking and personalized “Pet Profile” features, we are transforming the way pet parents shop.

At Chewy, we believe in ownership and accountability and value creativity. We are makers and doers who thrive on the desire to drive results. We approach our mission to provide the best service and pet products anywhere with a dogged determination and a disposition that is as sunny as the South Florida oceanfront we call home. Sure, we work hard, but we have fun, too. Of course, that is not hard to do when you get to bring your favorite four-legged friend to the office.
