At Fitbit, our mission is to help people lead healthier, more active lives by empowering them with data, inspiration and guidance to reach their goals.
We started our journey in 2007?as a team of two with one big idea. Today, that idea has become a movement. Fitbit is now a publicly-traded company creating award-winning products and services that are available across the globe. We're transforming the way the world sees health & fitness. In fact, the Fitbit Community has taken enough steps to walk from the Sun to Pluto. Our culture combines the spirit of startup with the perks of being public?offering a competitive benefits package and amazing perks like free lunches, Friday happy hours, on-site fitness classes and more. As part of our team, you'll have the opportunity to grow your career, contribute your ideas to life-changing products and services, and?above all?have fun doing it.
Fitbit's HQ campus is made up of three modern buildings located at the heart of SOMA in San Francisco. Monday-Friday you can feast your eyes on amazing views of the skyline, then feast yourself on some of the city's best food trucks, lunch spots and coffee shops. When you've had your fill, lace up and make your way to the Ferry Building for the perfect post-work run or walk along the water (with the Bay Bridge as your backdrop)!

Brief Description of the Job:
As a backend engineer on the features team, you are directly responsible for building and maintaining new and existing features and systems that directly impact millions of end users.
You'll be working with a variety of people as broad as your skill set, so you should be an effective communicator, and should be able to work as part of a diverse team. Since you'll touch so many different areas of the code, you should be aware of the larger context of your work and how things work as a whole. This means you should be able to understand the business value of your work, and should be able to prioritize tasks for maximal impact. It also means that you should understand how changes in one part of the stack affect the rest of the stack. For example, the database performance implications of adding a new feature to the front-end.
What You'll Work On:You will work on building scaleable backend features and services to support cross platform device communication, social interactions, wellness initiatives, and daily activity and exercise tracking - all of which directly influences and drives end user engagement.
