An Insider's view of Zen Planner

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Pop into our office around 1:15 p.m. any given day and you’ll see team members coming back from their lunch fitness class, martial arts class, or a trail run. We live and breathe fitness, from Ironman athletes to folks just starting their journey. Most people who work at Zen Planner get fitter by being in an environment that normalizes fitness.

What does your typical day look like?

I typically start my day super early working out at a local CrossFit gym. The work day starts with a stand-up, collaborating with Product Managers, Developers & Designers to make sure we are solving the right problems for our customers. I spend my day doing user research, journey maps, prototyping, tests and tweaking UI. Every day is different.
