Our Purpose

We strive to create great cycling experiences. We want people to go on better rides, more often. We don't run any ads on the site or in the app, and are able to maintain a singular focus on serving cyclists and those who serve cyclists.

About Us

Ride with GPS is a team of nineteen professionals delivering software that supports great cycling experiences. Our website is used to plan bike routes and events, manage bike clubs, analyze ride data, and publish great rides. Our companion app is a bike computer, route navigator, and ride recorder. Within the cycling world, we’re serving weekend riders, clubs, event organizers, tour operators, and racers. By joining Ride with GPS, you will help millions of people have a great time on their bike. Our business is bootstrapped and profitable, focused on sustainable growth via user satisfaction and word of mouth advertising.

We’re bringing on several more people right now, and will be honing what we have built and taking it to the next level in terms of design & experience. 2020 will be our biggest year on every measure, and it will be a lot of fun to be a part of.

Our office is centrally located, on NE 7th and Broadway. We have standing desks, a bike repair station, and a stocked kitchenette & fridge. We all love riding bikes, from road riding to mountain biking and everything in between. We have a corporate gym membership at the nearby Lloyd Athletic Club, and several of us routinely walk there to play racquetball or work out. Lunch runs and rides are also a regular occurrence. Three of us are also avid motorcyclists. We support a healthy balanced lifestyle, we’re family-friendly (many of us have young kids), and we are all very passionate about what we do in our work.

Benefits

We offer competitive salary, an excellent office environment as well as health, dental and vision insurance, and a 401k with a 10% match. You'll be equipped with a new Macbook Pro, iMac, or Linux machine, a standing desk and any other productivity tools that are needed. We strongly believe in testing our own software, and as a result are more than happy to help defray some of the costs of cycling.
