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.

In one form or another we're all directly or indirectly excited (obsessed even) about health at RunKeeper. With health at the heart of our culture at RunKeeper, there's a lot that can be done to formally extend that into our culture.

We build a product that aims to make the the world a healthier place. We have a unique advantage as a company; many of us are just like our users. We are active runners, cyclists, walkers, hikers, swimmers and even martial artists. We combine these interests with the interest in building a product that helps improve our own health and the health of the world.

By fully embracing health at the heart of our culture we are able to walk the walk as well as talk the talk. Below are a list of values that we use to drive everything we do at RunKeeper:

Users come first.

The first question we should ask ourselves when evaluating any course of action is, how does it affect our users?

Done is better than perfect.

While we take great pride in our work and have a tendency to want things to be perfect, it is important to fight through that tendency, move quickly, and receive continuous feedback and learning as we go.

Be relentless.

We have a huge vision and lots of work in front of us, and there are a lot of people who doubt us and tell us it can't be done or that it can't be us. In order to make sure that it is and will be, each one of us needs to be relentless in all that we do.

Stay humble.

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

Work together.

Smarts and hard work are important, but they are nothing if we don't work together as a team.

Take risks.

It is essential that we create an environment where it is OK to take risks.

Trust is everything.

Trust takes years to establish and seconds to destroy, and this trust is paramount to all that we do.
