Who We Are:
We are our own customers – we use TrainingPeaks in our own training and racing every day. We are proud of the unique work environment this has created. We feel that it is the reason we have been named one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work.
Walking around our office, you’ll hear conversations about last weekend’s races and see signed jerseys from some of the world’s best athletes. Our lunchtime rides and runs make training fun–and maybe just a little bit competitive–but if you’re like us, the two are one and the same!
Benefits & Perks:
We believe in flexible schedules and a work-life balance. Being located in Boulder, Colorado, there is just way too much cool stuff to experience and get done outside the office. Bottom line, there is an alignment between your personal and professional interests–this is a job where you don’t have to put your athletic life on hold until weekends.
Additional perks include:
– Dog-friendly office
– $1,200/year fitness reimbursement to purchase any items related to healthy living
