New to market, incredibly innovative and already recognized as one of the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work, Hydrow is the Live Outdoor Reality (LOR)™ rowing machine that delivers on-river experiences at home with workouts led by world-class athletes. Engaging two times more of the body’s muscles than cycling (86%, in fact), Hydrow’s interactive technology delivers challenging virtual fitness programs, including On the Mat offerings like yoga and Pilates, from gorgeous locations around the world.

Hydrow connects users with an entire community of fellow rowers, experiencing the rivers and waterways of the world together in synchrony. You, too, can be part of that community.

You will work on major features to delight our customers as well as focus on some of the core services and communications that help make the Hydrow secure and performant. You will interact with all of our tech stack including Kotlin and some SQL. You may work with Android System level code which helps with the management and installation of apps. You will collaborate with the product team, UX designers, and the rest of our engineering team.


    • You thrive in an open, lean, fast-paced, agile culture that emphasizes collaboration.
    • You are a senior engineer with 4+ years of development experience.
    • You have deep experience designing, writing and leading production-ready Android apps.
