Trade & Shopper intern 🎓
A little bit about Edgard & Cooper:
Once upon a time, our founders wanted to feed their dogs - Edgard and Cooper – pet food they could feel good about. The kind of food that was as good for the planet as it was for their pets. But they couldn’t find anything that was quite right. So….to cut a long story short, they decided to make their own!
Today, 5 years later, Edgard & Cooper has sold over 10 million bags of food, hired over 150 people across Europe and made lots and lots of dogs & cats (and their owners) feel good!
A little bit about us:
We call ourselves 'the pack' because we stick together. That means we’re a bunch of nature-loving, animal-adoring, purpose-driven pals! Working here means working in an international and supportive team in which everyone has a voice. We’re big fans of curiosity and learning on the job, and we love people who take the initiative.
So if you want to join a fast-growing team that’s REALLY making a 'pawsitive’ difference, you’ve come to right place!
