Job Description

ABOUT

Our client is a high-growth Fitness/Dance Tech platform with empowerment and self-confidence at its very core. Founded in 2018, the company closed the world’s first diverse, all-female investment round covered by Forbes with the ambition to scale our subscription-based on-demand classes, and best-in-class instructor training programs across the globe with a life-changing class on every corner, and on every device.

Due to COVID taking the world online, our global community grew by 1100% in 2020 thanks to launching the digital proof of concept for our on-demand dance classes off the back of features by Grazia, Cosmopolitan, Hello!, Huff Post, The Times, Insider, The Independent, Refinery29 and even Instagram themselves who recommended the IG Live classes in their roundup of the best IG Live events in the world. 2020 also saw the expansion of the instructor network, launching the first international in-person locations in Australia and Amsterdam, while continuing to build our presence across the UK.

Our client is now moving into a new phase of growth, building a global tech platform that allows users to access both their in-person and online classes through one digital destination.
