At TrueCoach, we believe fitness coaching should not be limited to those who can afford in-person guidance – and should not be constrained by the limitations of time and location.

Our mission is to improve the lives of fitness coaches and their clients. We are building tools that enable coaches to save time, grow their business, and deliver a better experience for their clients.
 
TrueCoach
is looking for a backend developer to join our team in Boulder, Colorado. You'll be responsible for working directly with the founders, our designers, and the top trainers and coaches in the industry to build the TrueCoach platform, currently built on EmberJS, Ruby on Rails, and Postgres.

As an early stage employee, you'll get the chance to own and build out multiple areas of the product, and be a driving force behind our evolution as a company. We have a solid foundation, with revenue and happy customers that love us, but we're just getting started.

Our stack and methodology:

  • Development: Ruby, Rails, Ember.js, Swift, React Native, CSS/SASS, HTML, Javascript
  • Database: Postgres, Redis
  • Testing: Rspec, QUnit, CircleCI, BrowserStack
  • Infrastructure: Heroku, AWS

We also follow agile based development, continuous integration, and we use Git.

Requirements:

  • Strong alignment with our engineering culture
  • Proven track record building high quality web applications, preferably SaaS products
  • Fluency with Ruby and familiarity with Rails or similar MVC frameworks
  • Proficiency with SQL and relational database design
  • Strong understanding of fundamental technologies of the web and browser
  • Strong desire to learn new things and high GASI(Give-a-shit index)
  • Hard working, open to constructive feedback, and ready to do the best work of your career
  • US citizen or authorized to work in the US

Nice-to-haves:

  • Passionate about health and fitness
  • Strong dev ops and application deployment skills

Perks:

  • Competitive pay and equity
  • Health insurance with $0 deductible
  • A remote coach (we believe dog-fooding our own app leads to a better product)
  • One conference fully comped per year (+ more if speaking at conferences)
  • Paid maternity/paternity leave
  • 10% investment time
  • Whatever computer equipment you need to get your job done
  • Paid time off
  • Flexible powder day policy - this IS part of why we live in Colorado, right?

An Insider's view of TrueCoach

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

One word: balanced!

Want to come in early and leave early? Cool. Need to make an appointment? No sweat. Want to take a quick bike ride in nice weather? Do it. Powder day? Absolutely.

We're able to take advantage of this balance because we know our teammates won’t let us fail. Whether it's during normal working hours or not, our team gets it done.

Hannah

Customer Success Manager

What does your typical day look like?

The nice thing about working at TrueCoach is the variety of different things going on, and you have opportunities to listen in and/or contribute to many topics affecting the company success. All teams work together for the common good. A typical day involves doing your "main" job, plus any other priority that comes up in which you can contribute.

How does the company support your career growth?

TrueCoach has supported my career growth through incredible mentorship, scheduled investment days where we’re able to spend every other Friday working on any growth-oriented project we’d like (ie: learning a new framework, helping w/ open source projects, etc) and through fully comp'ing one conference of our choice each year.

Emilie

Front-End Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I have regular 1-1's with everybody in the company. We all learn so much from regularly doing these, and if there was one thing I wish I could go back in time and start doing earlier in my career, it'd be the 1-1's.

Casey

Cofounder & CEO

How does the company support your career growth?

The support of pro-dev is one of the many reasons I love working for TrueCoach. With Investment Days, comped conferences, and regular 1:1 meetings, we have a structure for us to pursue our growth. TrueCoach believes strongly in pursuing excellence in all areas, but unlike others, this value permeates our culture because it is unanimously embraced.

Director of Customer Success
