In line with our nearing launch and need to scale rapidly, we’re expanding our small but exceptional team at Athletica. The purpose of Athletica is to apply the evolving HIIT Science principles for athletes and coaches across as many sports as possible using advances in modern technology. Our key business, throughout both HIIT Science and Athletica, is the development and application of training intelligence in sport.

To begin our next phase, we will add three additional members to our already strong team. These include a junior or intermediate level web developer, a junior or intermediate level data science developer and a junior or intermediate level coach/sports scientist. If there is one thing we know, it’s that people are everything when it comes to success in sport or business. Therefore, for each role, our desire is to hire at the casual level for a trial interim period (TBD), with the potential for full time continuing employment thereafter. During this time, we’ll all learn about one another, how we work, our business, etc. We’ll then both know if we want to take the next step. Compensation will be at the mid-market level, but if you join us, your why is the reason you’ll be chosen over any other factor. The required skills and experience for each position are described below.

Interested in applying? Send your CV and cover letter, outlining how you meet the skills, knowledge and experience of the position desired to hello@athletica.ai before January 30th.
