Our mission

Back in 1999, Brad Baxter—inventor and founder—inherited two cats and discovered firsthand the chore of scooping a traditional litter box. He set out on an entrepreneurial journey to build a great company around a life-changing product and to never scoop again. There just had to be a better way.

After multiple tests and prototypes, Brad engineered a gravity-enabled, automatic, self-cleaning litter box—and Litter-Robot was born. Three generations and infinite ideas later, we’re now 300+ employees strong and still on a mission to build beautifully functional products that help make life with your pet endlessly better.

Our culture

Who we are, how we work together, and what motivates us to grow and succeed as a team—that’s what makes Whisker, Whisker.

Do your best work

Locally or Remotely

We have traditional headquarters but also embrace the flexibility of being remote—so you can do your best work where it makes sense. While some roles are better situated in-office with our engineering lab in Michigan or with operations in Wisconsin, if you’re a problem-solver and changemaker excited about the future of pet care, we want to hear from you.
