Overview

CTO, London, Full-time

We are democratising smart bikes so that more people can experience awesome workouts from home. We do this by offering a high-quality bike that is premium but still great value, with affordable access to carefully curated online classes via our app. 

We’re proud of what our tech can do – our iOS app integrates deeply with our bikes to show

progress in real time, while streaming live and on-demand workouts, made competitive and fun

through live leader boards and great UX.

Since launching in 2020,  we have grown at rapid pace and we are looking for a CTO who can

help scale our success and push the technical boundaries to deliver workout experiences like no

other. We have ambitious plans for the future, and a vision to create the ultimate platform for

home workouts and improve personal well-being.

  • Take ownership of our technical architecture and strategy, making day-to-day decisions that align with our business objectives; 

  • Drive the delivery of high-quality, well-maintained code and solutions that will scale;

Our backend API is built with NestJS). 

  • Experience managing hardware integrations and embedded products. You will oversee future improvements to the technology inside our bike (which connects to the app via Bluetooth)
