Perks

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:

Passion

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.

Excellence

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.

Inclusiveness

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

Honesty

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

Optimism

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.

Collaboration

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.

Profit

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.

Fun

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

  • Ability to track and verify data through the full life cycle: from mobile request to back-end servers and into our analytics database.
  • Experience integrating with third-party SDKs.
  • An excitement and willingness to constantly improve our mobile analytics framework with an eye towards getting better data, faster, and more reliably.
  • An interest in applications of personalized data from workout reminders to recommending the perfect running shorts.
  • Bonus: Experience or interest in AWS data services, including Redshift, Spark and Datapipeline.
