Fitnessgenes technology is looking for co-pilots and cabin-crew.
Built by a team of genetic scientists, medical doctors and .com entrepreneurs, Fitnessgenes is the leading provider of genetic wellness intelligence, training and nutrition plans.

We’re ready to take our business and technology on the next journey which involves an improved Genetic Wellness Engine, Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Mobile applications, wearables, and dynamic training & nutrition plan development.

Fitnessgenes’ technology platform is based on .NET, C#, SQL-Server, Umbraco and Azure Service Fabric micro services. We’ve received a support grant from Microsoft to help us with the development of micro-services and machine learning.

We’re looking to expand our technology team with some co-pilots, who will assist the CTO in product ownership and -development and a supporting team of senior developers.

Co-Pilots / Product owners
You’ve been there, done that, but are eager to step in the world of ground breaking wellness technology to do it again! You have affinity with the fitness and nutrition industry and can take ownership of one of our products and bring it to a level where nobody has gone before. You’re an inspiring leader, can set your product development goals but at the same time inspire the development team and show them a trick or two.

Cabin-crew / Senior developers
You have more than 5 years’ experience in commercial software development using the Microsoft technologies, have lead small teams but discovered that you are genetically built for development than management.
You want to work in a team of likeminded developers that are embarking on an exciting journey to create something that didn’t exist before. No legacy code, no unreadable project plans and no limits. Just agile development in an exciting team on a unique mission.

Somewhere in Central London. We're planning to move our offices to London but have not decided on the location yet. Be assured that it's located in one of the existing start-up office buildings!

Send your application to and tell us why we would take you on board, what your mileage is, what we’re missing if we don’t provide you with a boarding pass and also important what you want to get out of it. 

Now! We’ll be interviewing and doing pre-flight checks over the next 3 months, ETD somewhere in Q4 2016.
