Who We Are

TrainingPeaks provides the complete web, mobile and desktop solution for enabling smart and effective endurance training. Our products include TrainingPeaks.com Athlete and Coach Edition, WKO+ desktop software for cutting-edge scientific analysis and planning, and the TrainingPeaks mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Our engineers share a passion for technical excellence, teamwork, and continuous improvement. We consistently deliver solutions that help our customers succeed and help our business grow.

Who You Are

As a Senior Front End Software Engineer at TrainingPeaks, your primary role is to build software that helps our athletes and coaches achieve their goals. You understand and appreciate the unique challenges of training and coaching for endurance sports, and of building high quality software for this market.

You excel at collaborating with other engineers, product managers, UX and UI designers, and QA testers, to find pragmatic solutions to challenging problems. You work to raise the quality and productivity of your team by improving the codebase, improving tools and processes, and mentoring junior engineers. You have enough skill to invent your own front end frameworks, libraries, and build tools, and enough judgement to know when not to.

You understand that personal skills, relationships, and team dynamics are just as important as software architecture. You are a driving force for quality, positive change, and continuous improvement, and you constantly raise the standards and bring out the best in your team. You are committed to helping our customers, our business, and your teammates achieve their goals.
