Role Description

Senior iOS Engineer

We’re an early team from Apple, Airbnb, Postmates & Fitbit that just raised a large Series A from top-tier investors. This is an opportunity to work closely with people who have changed several landscapes, and are now taking on health.

Everyone wants to be healthy. Future is giving anyone, anywhere the ability to partner with an expert trainer. Obstacles like accessibility, time & cost can now be mitigated through mobile & wearable technology. We are going to help people capitalize on this.

Our iOS app guides the heart of our customer experience. It is here that our clients communicate with their trainers, get the advice and guidance they need, and spend the vast majority of their time while engaging with us.

Additionally Apple Watch provides a convenient interface and tracks a client's workout activity down to individual movement patterns that can be analyzed by the trainer and modeled for performance.


• Contribute to the development of our iOS apps with the goal of making our clients more engaged & successful. • Implement native user interfaces using the latest iOS programming techniques. • Use knowledge of iOS development to help guide design and engineering decisions. • Work with product managers, designers and full-stack engineers to help shape the vision of our mobile and desktop products. • Solve challenging engineering, scaling and performance issues.
