In fact, the Fitbit Community has taken enough steps to walk from the Sun to Pluto and back again! Offering award-winning products, a top-rated mobile app and an easy-to-use dashboard, Fitbit provides personalized experiences that help our users reach their goals. With a reenergized focus on innovative devices, interactive experiences, and enterprise health we are transforming the way consumers and businesses see health & fitness.

We offer a competitive benefits package and amazing perks like unlimited snacks, Friday happy hours, a wellness stipend, and a strong focus on a healthy work-life balance.

  • Demonstrated skill in automating operational needs and developing tools at scale.

  • A history of thorough documentation.

  • The ability to coordinate and communicate effectively whether it's emails, documentation, or video conferencing.

  • Worked with remote teams before.

Key Traits:

  • Self-motivated and driven to succeed.

  • Exceptional communication and organization skills.

  • Your code is easily readable, but also can operate reliably.

  • Proficient at learning new tools/systems and sharing that knowledge within the team

  • Genuine curiosity and love for your craft.

  • Willingness to travel to occasionally and effectively communicate with internal teams.

  • Able to summarize information at varied granularity based on the intended audience.

  • Skilled at planning and executing simultaneous projects and activities. Ability to prioritize and keep complicated projects moving forward.

  • Able to build prototypes for new systems and vet their operation

  • History of relevant open source contributions is a plus.

  • Thrive in an evolving operational environment, responding to occasional unexpected production level issues.

Do this sound like you? Unsure about some of the qualifications? We'd still love to hear from you.

    About Us
    Help Scout is made by roughly 110 people in 80+ cities around the world, all with a passion for helping others. We come from diverse backgrounds and are united by an enthusiasm for great products and delightful customer experiences. Help Scout launched in 2011 and today we have more than 10,000 paying customers in 140+ countries.

    Why Help Scout?
    We're remote. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked remotely before — we’ve been doing it for nearly a decade and are helping to write the playbook — we’re happy to show you the ropes. Most folks that get a taste of working in a "remote first" company have a hard time going back to the old way of doing things.

    We’re passionate about diversity and inclusion. The data is abundantly clear about diverse teams being more successful, and we're dedicated to setting the team up for success. Today our leadership team is 62% women, and that's just the start. Here’s our 2019 report. 

    We're committed to SMBs for the long term. Help Scout is focused entirely on serving small and midsize businesses, typically up to 500 employees, because those companies view customer service differently. It's not a cost to be optimized, it's their most effective marketing tool and a key differentiator from the competition. We built Help Scout for companies that truly value being customer-centric (like us) and want a product that shares their values.

    We're leaving the world better than we found it. Did you know Help Scout is a certified B Corporation, with a mission to give away at least 1% of our product through Help Scout for Good? Our company exists not just to help ourselves, but to invest in our team, our customers, our community, and our environment.

    Our commitment to you
    We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.
