We don't have ping-pong, foosball, slides or on-site physicians. We also don't have much bureaucracy, red tape or busy work. We're driven by our mission of making the world a healthier place, and we'll give you flexibility, freedom, autonomy, and ownership of your role. That's all in addition to our ever-growing benefits package.

And don't worry, we have plenty of fun in the process, between our impromptu stretching sessions, regular company- and team-wide fun outings, and general office awesomeness.

Our company is filled with people whose lives have been transformed by running, and fitness in general. Our mission is to build a platform that motivates more people to get and stay out there experiencing the magic of this incredible sport.

Below are a list of values that we use to drive everything we do at RunKeeper:


Building RunKeeper is not just a job for us; it's a mission that's rooted in a deep-seated passion for fitness and helping more people lead active lives.


We strive to exceed expectations in everything we do, whether it be the products we build, the business results we achieve, or the way we treat people along the way.


We're building RunKeeper to help everyone experience the magic of fitness, not just the world-class athletes.


No matter how much success we achieve along the way, it is important that we stay humble and remember where we've come from.


We're much more interested in working together to achieve the unimaginable than we are in telling you all of the reasons why it can't be done.


We know you stand a much higher chance of success if you work together, so we're huge proponents of checking ego at the door and embracing collaboration and trust.

Continued Learning

We know the smartest, most learned people are also the ones that know just how much they have left to learn. Our company is filled with people who are constantly striving to learn more and better themselves.


Revenue and profit are the oxygen that enable us to exist and pursue our purpose. Every single one of us must play a part in building a profitable and successful business.


Life is too short. We make a point to enjoy the journey and not take ourselves (or anyone else) too seriously.

UX Designer

Give RunKeeper a hand in discovering and solving one of life's biggest human and design problems: Motivation. You can help millions maybe even billions (someday) of real people close the gap between action and intent and seriously make a difference in their lives and health. This is hacking human behavior at its finest!

Not only that, but you'll be superglued to a team of engineers, product managers, biz devs, and visual designers to create experiences that our users love.

Where you'd fit in

You'd be one of 3 UX designers on our small but focused UX team, and work on a cross-functional scrum team. You'd be reporting to the Director of User Experience. The UX team at RunKeeper is part of our Product Org along with our Product Management and Data teams.

What you're responsible for

Solve real problems in a way that customers love and use and want to pay for. Thats your one job.

  • Work super close with a Product Manager to define customer/brand "Problems"
  • Work super close with Engineers and Viz. Designers to create a "Solution" to those problems
  • Sketch & prototype those new experiences with just enough documentation. Wireframes need not apply
  • Run customer interviews and observational studies to understand the problem up front
  • Design and moderate (mostly formative) in person usability testing to make sure the product works and solves the problem
  • Work the solution after shipping until we get it right
  • Get all of this done in a pretty well functioning Agile environment
  • Help to grow the competencies of the UX team by introducing new processes and methodologies

Skills that pay the bills

  • 5-8 years as a UX or Interaction designer; consumer product is a plus
  • At least 3 years working on a mobile-centric product
  • A portfolio of work that shows you've solved some pretty hard problems for real people.
  • MS or some relevant education in HCI or Human Factors is a big plus
  • Sees the entire world through a "customer problem" point of view
  • Hold your own within a group of smart and eager engineers and product managers
  • Knows that shipping is still just the start of the process; ready to iterate and validate until we get it right.
  • Super comfortable designing tight and simple experiences for iOS and Android

What's the team like?

You'll fit right in if you:

  • Communicate best with animated gifs
  • Like to argue about types of beer
  • Like to reminisce about your favorite X-Files episodes
  • Read all the UX and product blogs you possibly can every day
  • Download a million apps you only use once just to see how "they did it"

What's up with RunKeeper?

RunKeeper helps more than 40 million people around the world experience the joys of running and is on a mission to build the next great consumer brand.
