CTO for B2B Sports SaaS at Gymdesk

Gymdesk provides modern, online management software to gyms, martial arts schools, yoga studios and other fitness and wellness businesses. In an industry dominated by outdated and cumbersome products, we provide the superior user experience people expect in 2023.

We are looking for a senior technical leader who still likes to roll up their sleeves and write code. We have over 1000 businesses use our product to manage their operation, and growing rapidly. You'll be taking over leading the technical direction of the product from the technical founder, and will work closely with him to set and execute the technical roadmap, and leading the rest of the development team.

You should love managing complexity in elegant ways, and creating user interfaces that hide that complexity in the backend. The product is mature, but is constantly evolving / adapting based on new use-cases and user feedback.

About the role:

Our CEO is currently our lead developer as well. You'll receive training on the stack, platform and flows within the software. Gym management might not sound complicated, however there is a lot of complexity hidden behind our shiny UI, as we account for many different use-case that you likely have never considered as part of running a gym. Regardless of your past experience, we believe this will be a worthy challenge.

About the team:

Gymdesk is a small and effective team (currently 10 people). We don't have office politics and try to minimize the amount of interruptions you will have to deal with. We are a remote team that communicates mostly through slack and video chats as needed. We use Github to manage our repos, tickets and sprints.
