Senior Software Engineer (Remote)

New York /
Engineering /
Full Time
Kickoff addresses two of the biggest challenges facing the 21st century and especially middle / working class people - the obesity epidemic and the future of work.

We are a remote personal training business-in-a-box that makes it easy for underemployed folks to become certified personal trainers, recruit clients from their network, fundamentally change lives for the better and earn a 6-figure income. Our tech makes our coaches ultra efficient and effective, from recruiting clients to driving daily nutrition behavior change to providing the best possible workout for the client each day. Clients get the unbeatable results that can only come from daily human accountability while coaches get much higher pay, complete autonomy, flexibility, and purpose. 

We’re well on our way to our goal of millions of high-earning coaches putting a massive dent in the obesity epidemic - to date, over 19,000 coaches have joined, and we’re growing north of 20% month on month.
