“About Us” sections always feel like a forced dating bio. So we’ll cut right to it: we solve complex problems for some of the biggest brands in fit-tech. We’ve collected the expertise needed to help them find and amaze their customers with top-notch digital fitness experiences.

And we work with some unbiasedly awesome people, who believe in deep diving on new challenges, personal growth, and having a life. Since we know you’ll deliver, we’re a Results-Only Workplace Environment, where we offer as many vacation, sick and mental-health days as you need to get the job done.

With projects ranging from high-impact, cutting-edge solutions to complete strategic overhauls we can promise you one thing—your work will have a meaningful impact on an active and thriving customer base.

About You
We’re seeking an Early Career Web Developer with Back-End focus to build large-scale web products for health and wellness brands. You will be responsible for contributing to back-end architecture and development of new apps, assisting with maintenance and new features on existing Ruby on Rails apps while working directly with one/more Project Managers, a lead engineer, and the clients.

Though we have an office in Irvine, CA and co-working spaces in Los Angeles, we've become a remote-first company through the pandemic. When it's safe to do so, we'd love to meet in person and host retreats. Therefore, candidates in Southern California and Pacific time-zone are preferred, but we're happy to consider any candidates in the US.

We're a Results-Only Workplace Environment (ROWE) which allows you as many vacations, sick, and mental-health days as you need, as long as you are meeting your performance goals, assigned tasks, and projects.

Other benefits include:
Health, Dental, Vision and Life Insurance, 401K Plan, Various Fitness and Wellness Benefits (Group Classes, Free Training, Products, etc.), Continued Education Courses, and Conference Attendance
The responsibilities and job scope discussed above may change as necessitated by business demands.
