We are wholeheartedly committed to building a culture where a sense of inclusion, equity and belonging are foundational and felt across all areas of our business -- customers, partners and employees alike. 

About the Right Team Member:

We're looking for an innovative backend engineer with a passion for designing robust and easy to use APIs and services.  You’re comfortable tackling efforts solo or working in groups, both big and small.  Fast-paced environments don’t phase you, and you seek feedback because it has the ability to turn good work into great work. You know the best software is created through collaboration and iteration, which is exactly why you’re looking for the right opportunity, and the right team, to expand your experience.

As a backend engineer you will craft new functionality with a dedicated team of skilled individuals. You like to ship software early and often, you value simplicity, and strive to eliminate unnecessary complexity.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate closely with Product, Design, and QA to iterate on the design, implementation, deployment and monitoring of our product
  • Build efficient and reusable backend systems
  • Participate in design and code reviews
  • Maintain high code coverage via unit tests and acceptance tests
  • Find and address performance issues

Requirements:

  • Experience with Java and Python desired
  • Bachelor degree in Computer Science, or equivalent and at least 2 years of professional programming experience
  • A strong understanding of RESTful API design
  • Knowledge of web frameworks such as Dropwizard, Flask, and Django a plus
  • Love of fitness a plus

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. 

About Class Pass

The ClassPass story

ClassPass was born in 2013 after Payal Kadakia struggled to find a dance class to take after work in NYC. After countless Google searches, schedule cross-checking and frustrating log-in attempts, Payal never made it to class. Rather than chalk up that evening as a failure, Payal created an idea. Working out shouldn’t be hard - what if there was a way to make it easy?

What started as an app and website that made finding and booking classes effortless is now changing how people live their lives. Whether we’re bringing together a community of enthusiasts, helping people find the activities that make their true selves come alive or supporting small businesses and studios across the entire globe, we believe that being active is the key to living a happy and healthy life.
