Aviron

Company Background:

Aviron, a Y-combinator company, is an experience-driven connected rowing machine built on an advanced gaming platform. We are excited to grow our team and share our vision of creating a leading fitness entertainment platform that motivates via gaming psychology and tech vs. the more common instructor-led connected fitness.

Backed by initial investors from Samsung and Formic Ventures (founded by Michael Antonov, the co-founder of Oculus), and having recently raised Series A funding led by investment firm Stripes, Aviron has over $30M in backing and is experiencing rapid growth (600%+ YoY) and top percentile user engagement while helping people change their lives for the better.

We demonstrate our commitment to improving the health and fitness of real, everyday people by not using models or professional athletes in our ads and growing a fanatical, supportive and positive community, which we highly recommend you check out to get a true sense of Aviron.

The pandemic has rapidly accelerated the in-home fitness industry and we're poised to continue this rapid pace of growth. We're looking for a passionate individual to join the OG team and be a part of our success story
