    Fitbit CEO And True Ventures' Jon Callaghan On The Big Fitness Opportunity

    If you've ever glanced at your wrist and wondered why so many tech companies are vying for such a relatively small strip of flesh, chances are you're not thinking big enough. And you're definitely not thinking like a VC. "Wearables is one of these - like the Internet, like cloud, like robotics - very, very large horizontal markets.

                                Bits from our Employees



Matt Silva, Product Manager

"My background is in behavior change, and it’s a unique opportunity designing for products that span both hardware and software. People love their Fitbit’s and have an often personal relationship with them. Knowing that to be true, it’s really fun and awesome to be designing and building things for a product people care so much about. Everyone here is really smart and talented, and committed to helping people live healthier lives."


Karla Robertson, Mechanical Engineering Manager

"I've worked on consumer electronic products for my entire career. At the beginning of my career, I knew I wanted to work on products that closely integrated into people's lives. And while I know people who love the smartphones and tablets that I have helped design, working at Fitbit has given me the opportunity to work on products that can truly improve people's lives. Not only do our products give our users a way to quantify their daily activity, but our products are also a physical reminder that they care about their health and wellness. When I look down at my wrist and see a Fitbit designed and developed by my team, I am reminded that I care about my own health, and that I should get out there and get more steps."



Peter Molettiere, Director of Engineering

"I’ve been working at Fitbit for more than four years, and it has consistently provided a series of new and interesting challenges.  It’s great to work with such a talented and motivated team, on a product that has such a visible impact for so many people.  Everyone has a story about Fitbit has positively impacted the life of a relative or friend."



Allie Russell, Research Engineer

"The fitbit research team is full of fun, talented, curious scientists and engineers, working on new sensors, new applications for our current sensors, better algorithms and interesting features. I focus on designing experiments to test all of the above on real users. My background is in general engineering. I value the variety of projects, collaboration and opportunities to learn on this team."



Drew Matthews, Visual/Motion Designer 

"We have a really great team of designers and engineers that work together to design and build solutions for complex problems. Getting the chance to make changes, test and iterate and ship is really exciting. Working on screens that interact with hardware is pretty awesome. Also, It is extremely rewarding to work for a company that can have a tremendous positive impact on many people’s lives."


Paul Schultz, Software Engineer

"As a 2013 graduate I’ve gotten to work on features that are core to Fitbit’s mission. The engineering team is strong with plenty of smart and experienced developers, and I’m still learning every day. I love it here—there’s still some startup culture, but with the impact of a larger company. The leadership teams are open-minded and always looking for ways to improve."

Fitbit has another major office located in Boston, MA

Our Boston location is in the heart of the Innovation District at 250 Summer Street directly on the Fort Point Channel with waterfront views. We are a convenient six minute walk to South Station with additional nearby public transportation options. 

The idea of Fitbit's Boston office originated directly from our co-founders, James Park and Eric Friedman who recognized the immense local talent provided by several of the nation's best schools in addition to the growing technology community in Boston. Originally slated as a software engineering office, Fitbit Boston's office has continued to grow and currently includes dedicated teams focused on Software, Firmware, Business Intelligence, Research, iOS, Android and Recruiting.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fitbit.


    The whole process took about near two months for just three phone interviews. First submitted online, then one week later, got contacted with the Fitbit HR coordinator, and scheduled the first screen phone interview, which then just went through the resume stuff. Then for the second and third phone interviews, it shows the Fitbit team was not so serious for recruiting new people. For the second interview with the manager, the manager just missed the time to call in for the first time. Then for the second time with the manager, the manager was late for 15 minutes. The interview took about 15 minutes, also just resume stuff. Then two weeks later, with a research engineer (name noticed) for third phone interview. When the research engineer called in, the research engineer told me they rescheduled a different person to talk with me. For the third phone call, the phone call signal was really bad. There was just one question. The interview was scheduled for one hour, however, after about 15 minutes, I was told we were going to run out of the time....what a .....??!!!Story ends here.... Really unprofessional recruiting team!!!
