We are here to teach millennials to build a healthy life, providing every building block of knowledge from food to fitness. Our online classes and vibrant social media community will empower and inspire individuals to live their best lives.


We offer competitive start-up salaries, terrific health benefits, flexible PTO, opportunities for stock options, and a fun culture that includes plentiful fitness and nutrition programs.


Rebel Labs is committed to creating huge value for millennials that are looking to improve their health. We are looking to offer out-of-the-ordinary results, and an exceptional client experience through everything we do from marketing to fulfillment.


Position Summary:

We are looking to hire a senior-level back-end software engineer who can architect and build the Rebel Labs back-end to be used by Rebel Labs mobile and web applications. This is a full-time position, based in Austin-Round Rock (TX).


You’ll work closely with Product, front-end, and mobile engineers to define the tech stack, create necessary infrastructure, build services and APIs, and enable integrations with a range of external systems.


Our ideal candidate is someone who has done all of these things previously and now wants to start from a blank slate (no inherited code!) and build it all from scratch. You’re able to work in a fast-paced, changing environment with lots of fun challenges. You manage your time well, and are able to work as part of a distributed team.


We are looking to bring online nutrition, cooking, fitness, running, and yoga classes to millennials around the planet, so ideally you are already interested in the arena of health & wellness.
