Company Description

Daxko powers health & wellness throughout the world. Every day our team members focus their passion and expertise in helping health & wellness facilities operate efficiently and engage their members.

Whether a neighborhood yoga studio, a national franchise with locations in every city, a YMCA or JCC--and every type of organization in between--we build solutions that make every aspect of running and being a member of a health and wellness organization easier and delightful. 

Job Description

As a Senior Software Engineer at Daxko, you will be helping power health and wellness throughout the world by contributing to several applications that help gym owners manage their memberships, allow their customers to track workouts, and provide world-class tools to grow our customers’ businesses.

This application feeds data via APIs while also providing a web-based hub for gym owners and program suppliers to create content and engage with their members. You’ll create cutting-edge APIs, help to fine-tune application performance, and guide the technical direction of the application.

As a Senior Engineer, along with solving complex engineering problems, you will help to mentor other engineers, provide architectural input, and lead technical discussions. Your communication skills are honed to be able to recognize opportunities and present solutions to challenges to adjacent non-technical teams.

  • Participate in user story creation in collaboration with the team
  • Guide team members to develop prototypes as necessary and validate ideas with a data driven approach

  • Proficient in application development in modern object-oriented programming languages
  • Proficient in building and integrating with web services and RESTful APIs

  • Mastery of applicable development tools, technologies, methodologies, design patterns, and best practices
  • Excellent time management skills with a proven ability to meet deadlines
  • Ability to function well in a high-paced and at times stressful environment
  • Ability to mentor and help develop team members

    Bonus points for:

    • Bachelor’s degree in related field such as Computer Science, Computer Engineer, Applied Mathematics, or Applied Sciences or equivalent experience
    • Experience with Javascript frameworks such as Angular, Vue, React or Backbone
    • Experience with dependency injection frameworks

    An Insider's view of Club Automation

    What’s the vibe like in the office?

    Our office is high energy & collaborative. We promote interaction within & across teams to build camaraderie. They say life happens in the kitchen & that’s true here too! Whether it’s grabbing coffee, sharing our family-style Friday lunches, or grabbing a beer at the end of the day, we check our egos at the door & have fun while working together.


    Team Lead of Customer Service

    What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

    To meet the demands of our fast-growing customers, my team builds applications focused on scalability and configurability. We are challenged to think innovatively about how our applications can service one customer or ten-thousand customers with an equally engaging and responsive user experience.


    UI Architect

    What does career growth look like on your team?

    The demand for our product is growing which has led to a lot of growth opportunity. Leaders check in with their team members regularly to learn more about their long-term interests. There’s ample opportunity to shadow teammates in other roles and we’re encouraged to grow our skillset or explore a new one through resources like LinkedIn Learning.


    Training Team Lead

    How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

    At its core, Club Automation is an employee-driven organization. Innovation starts within and across our teams, and ideas flow outward from there; we make efforts not to be constrained by top-down thinking. We believe that there is no problem for which a knowledgeable, talented, and driven group of people cannot create a solution.


    Director of Engineering

    How has your career grown since starting at the company?

    I started as an intern here, and right after graduating, I earned a full time BDR role. I was then promoted to an Account Executive 6 months later. It’s inspiring to work in a company that trusts you and recognizes potential for growth, encourages that growth, and gives you the necessary tools to become a leader and handle greater responsibilities.
