Who we are. How we roll.

We are looking for diverse, driven, talented people who see problem-solving and creation as oxygen, not just a job. We are reinventing coaching for a digital fitness world and we’re just getting started. We perform like athletes, always looking for ways to improve.

We are not a cycling company. We are not a tech company. We are an experience company and our goal is to help people improve their fitness, and in doing so, improve their life. That is the experience we seek. This is critical on a few levels:

  1. We care about the experiences we deliver to each other, our customers, our partners, and ourselves. This is core to how we operate.
  2. We are building technology for digital fitness but we are doing this because better fitness means a better life. "We believe that regardless of skill level — if you can improve your fitness and health, you unlock more opportunities for positive life experiences."
  3. Success will not be easy and we know this. We embrace this. There are much easier paths to take. There are few that can be more rewarding.

We are a team of experienced builders, backed by some of the best partners in the business (YCombinator, General Catalyst, Norwest Venture Partners, Zone 5 Ventures, and Goodwater Capital, to name a few). We are building more than just an app, and looking for more than just another teammate. We offer a remote team and are building a culture of execution and camaraderie. We offer healthcare and a growing list of remote benefits that help our team get better, and improve each other's lives. Come help us shape the world of digital fitness.
