Job Information

ButcherBox Sr. Software Engineer - PHP in Boston, Massachusetts

ButcherBox delivers 100% pasture raised, grass-fed & finished beef, organic chicken, and

heritage breed pork directly to your door. We are a fast paced, high growth startup

headquartered in Brighton, MA with a satellite office and test kitchen in Peabody, MA.

Our founder was first introduced to 100% grass-fed beef through a local farmer who sold ¼ and

½ shares of cattle. After trying it, he was instantly hooked. He preferred the more natural taste

and was thrilled to discover the many health advantages grass-fed beef has over ordinary

grain-fed beef. So his question became, “why isn’t everyone eating this?”

After doing some research, he discovered that not everyone has access to grass-fed beef, and

even if people have access, their selection is often limited to just ground beef. This helps

explain why just 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States is 100% pasture raised

grass-fed. While the Company began by offering beef to our members, we have since expanded

to providing organic chicken and heritage breed pork.

We believe in and are relentlessly working to create an ever healthier food system where

everyone has access to meat the way Nature intended: grass fed, free of antibiotics and

hormones, and humanely raised on open pasture.

ButcherBox exists to ensure that access to high-quality meat you can trust is easy and

affordable. We provide better meat for a better you.
