Job Description

Fitbit’s mission is to make the world a healthier place; in pursuit of this, we create activity and health tracking devices to provide users with data-driven insights into their lifestyles. Our mobile clients are key component of this user experience—they connect the data in our wireless sensor devices to our cloud based data storage backend while also giving users the tools to track their progress, set goals and compete with friends. We are actively working on many interesting problems including:

  • Creating engaging yet computationally efficient interactive data visualizations that are optimized for mobile devices with touch screens. This is an area of user interfaces for which there is no established solution; we aim to set the standard.
  • Overcoming the hurdles of distributed systems to build native mobile clients that are tolerant of transient connectivity. We aim for our mobile clients and sensor devices to function together as normally as possible even when there is no connection to the internet.
  • Exploiting low power communication technologies to make the internet of things a reality. We have been on leading edge of consumer deployment for both wearable sensors and Bluetooth Low Energy.
  • Crafting beautiful mobile user experiences that allow users to intuitively accomplish any task. Our mobile clients are a vital part of the user interface to the Fitbit platform.
