Phone Sales Representative (Austin)
Texas, Austin

The Company:

Serenity Kids is a family-owned and run company that is dedicated to supporting working parents. Serenity & Joe Carr started Serenity Kids because they wanted the best for their baby, Della, and didn’t like what was on the market. Babies need protein and healthy fats to grow their brains and bodies, and no baby food on the market at the time included these essential macronutrients. They created our own to mimic the nutrients of breast milk, made from pasture raised meats sourced from small American family farms and blended with high-quality organic vegetables. Our purees are balanced savory meals that contain the most nutrition per bite because every bite counts.
