We're a group of people who believe that if we can make fitness FUN, then people will get excited about it, do it, and as a result become healthier and happier.
When we're younger, fitness.... "recess" is our favorite part of the day! When we get older, we turn fitness into a chore. Who wants to lift dead metal over and over?
Freeplay changes that. We make fitness FUN again, by offering people a mobile fitness & relaxation arcade -- a sort-of VIP pass they carry in their pockets. Our customers are companies, who pay Freeplay a monthly fee, and then their employees get access to any of our gyms or spas. From rock-climbing, to soccer, to swimming, CrossFit, to Yoga and massage.
We are genuinely excited by this mission to make fitness fun again, and we're looking for others to join us.
You love to build things. You build things for fun. You are curious and love to learn, but you also don't over-think. You get things done and know when to eg. re-use something in GitHub to 10x your speed, rather than building from scratch. You are focused on the end-user, and have empathy for them. You're ok with manning the support tickets at times, so that you can directly help those who are suffering (whether with their health, or with our app. :-D ).
You'd own the backend, the front-end, and really, all the (technical) ends, for now. If you want to make an impact and work with a team that has been through everything from YC-backed startups, to successfully bootstrapped companies, all the way to $2b+ success, and are "veterans" without being cynical, we're that team.
This is a young startup. Our v1 is live (download it here: http://freeplay-app.com/) There's no BS. We communicate via Slack. We obsessively gather feedback from users and customers. We commit code to GitHub. We want to make an impact, and we're getting on with it.
To apply: Send an email to email@example.com, with something you've built that you're proud of.
