What SPINS Offers

When we began working from home in 2020, we were committed to keeping the healthy and active SPINS culture for our employees. Keeping the culture is high priority to us as we have continued to hire and onboard new employees even while we worked remotely. We listen to employee feedback as we plan when and how we will return to the office in the future. While we can’t have some of our favorite in-office perks (plenty of snacks, onsite gym, and bike storage), we’ve continued to find ways to stay true to SPINS:

  • Virtual yoga, HIIT, and Kinstretch classes each week
  • Each employee is allotted 8 hours to use to volunteer with an organization of their choice.
  • Stay connected with other SPINS employees for a weekly PELOTON ride together
  • Direct – We communicate with clarity, honesty and respect in all situations and embrace opportunities to provide solution-oriented feedback.
  • Determined – We are committed to overcoming all obstacles to achieve results. We adapt to change, seek opportunities to learn and rapidly translate that learning into action.
  • Passionate – We go above and beyond to help our partners achieve their goals. We challenge assumptions and are comfortable forging new paths.
  • Collaborative – We leave our egos at the door, believing that working together we will produce an outcome that’s greater than each individual contribution.

An Insider's view of SPINS LLC

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The beauty of our mission lies in the fact that we're impacting all consumers to live healthier and more vibrant lives, and this transcends to our own team members within the office. With our mission in mind, we cultivate an office environment and culture where we support team members to live their best lives.


Chief People Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Knowing motives, responsibilities and objectives is key in building functional cross collaboration. If you take ownership of this and do your own research (look up their org chart, LinkedIn profiles, read through work produced) in conjunction with asking questions this goes a long way to mutual understanding.


VP, Customer Success

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Over the years, I've worked for both corporate and not for profit organizations and SPINS feels the most nurturing and organic. Individuals and teams are empowered to define a path to success. If you are curious and passionate, you can forge multi-disciplinary partnerships & make a difference beyond the boundaries of your specific department/role.


Senior Product Owner

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We have a unique culture where our decision making is not encumbered by heavy processes like those at multi-billion dollar companies and at the same time, in the last few years, our leadership team has added structure that adds rigor to our operations and product development.
