Glofox is on a mission to revolutionize the boutique fitness industry. We are doubling in size every year, and along with our ever-growing client base that spans 30 distinct countries, our team is dedicated to taking group fitness to the next level.

We're a hard-working, fun-loving, get-things-done type of team that are building a platform that saves time, increases retention and ultimately, helps studio and gym owners become more successful. At Glofox, we love entrepreneurs because we are entrepreneurs. We know how much grit it takes to start your own business and grow it into something that lasts. We roll our sleeves up, we act fast, and we learn together. We're looking for people that will do the same.


We are looking to add a Senior Front End Engineer to join our highly motivated team; with a fantastic product; crafted with a cutting edge tech stack, and a huge opportunity to realise. We do things differently here, by getting our engineers working closely with Product Managers, Business and Marketing, right from ideation stage, so as a member of the team you'll be around to ask the awkward questions and try the scenarios that product managers or business functions don't dream up.

If you’re looking to join a scaling startup and you’re willing to work hard to solve some complex problems for a very large market, then we are looking for you.
