    Erin Tao, who we think might have one of the coolest jobs around, is the head of merchandising at BarkBox, a New York City-based subscription service sending monthly deliveries of toys, treats, and other goodies to hundreds of thousands of dogs worldwide. When she's not working, she can probably be found running her dog, Sawyer or planning a weekend hiking adventure.
    Erin Tao is the head of merchandising at BarkBox, a New York City-based subscription service sending monthly deliveries of toys, treats, and other goodies to hundreds of thousands of dogs worldwide; she was also the company’s first full-time hire. Previously, Erin organized hackathons at Aviary and played basketball at Columbia University. For the few hours of the day, where she’s not buried in product or smothered by office puppies, she’s most likely running her Carolina Dog, Sawyer, nursing turf burns from soccer, or dreaming of where to hike next.

    Keep up with Erin on Twitter, and definitely consider subscribing to BarkBox, if only to make your already devoted pup at home that much happier.
