Lyka was built on the belief that all puppers should live their best life. We deliver human-grade meals on a subscription to dogs all over Australia. We produce all of our food in our human-grade kitchen in Sydney.
Our company began when our founder Anna went on a journey to improve her dog Lyka’s health. Anna started creating a homemade diet for Lyka. In just a few weeks, Lyka had more energy, less tooth decay, and a healthier coat.
Since then, Team Lyka has grown to a team of ambitious and like-minded dog-lovers with a single shared goal: to serve our customers and their pupper with the best possible food on the planet. From improving digestive issues in puppers, to bringing back the youthful energy in seniors – we’re getting closer to our mission, every day.
At Lyka we prioritise data-driven development, so by joining our team you'll be having a direct impact on the happiness of our customers and operations team as you build things they actually need. As a result, you'll be working directly with the founders, finding the 80/20 so we can continually provide value to our customers. This is a challenging role with broad technical responsibilities where you will be playing a key role in shaping the future of the Lyka Platform.
You'll be part of our small, high-energy, rapid development tech team, helping us increase the impact of our current site by improving and expanding current features, while also leading new greenfield projects in both our customer-facing technology and internal operations platform. You'll be leaning heavily on your amazing analytical skills as you collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders to help Lyka continue to nourish Australian puppers.
