Job Description

Openfit, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Beachbody, is a brand-new, fully integrated, digital streaming platform for fitness, nutrition, and wellness - plus all the daily help you need to live a healthy, vibrant life. Our streaming platform includes a live group fitness experience that makes boutique classes available to everyone, as well as personalized, easy-to-follow nutrition programming and tracking - all to make it possible for anyone to achieve better health and wellness. We are an equal-opportunity employer offering competitive compensation, flexible schedules, as well as a friendly and collaborative work environment.
