Travel and work from anywhere
Never commute again
Spend time with your family
We're different at PN—We work remotely to allow our team to accomplish both their professional and personal ambitions, without trade offs. Want to travel the world and work with a brilliant team? You can. Want to spend time with your young children and work from home? You can do that too. This is how we live our lives at PN and we'd love to share that possibility with you.
We're looking for an interaction designer to join our team.
But more importantly, we're looking for a very specific person.
PN is a unique company in many ways — from the way we're structured (flat, rather than hierarchical) to how we work (remotely, rather than in a fancy office). Here's a bit more about us so you can see if we'd be a good fit for you.
Find everyone who’s ready to live the healthiest and most fulfilling life, be accessible to them, and help them make transformative, sustainable change happen — whether that's a nutrition coaching client who wants to revamp their health, or someone who's making a career change and entering the fitness industry to make a living doing what they love.
PN values the highest standards, generosity, and all-in-ness. The content we publish, the research we conduct — we always strive to punch above our weight. We're generous with each other and with our customers, preferring to err on the side of over-giving, over-delivering, being more generous than most companies would be. That’s the PN way. Everyone cares about the health of the organization, how it works, what the customers get. Employees have a strong sense of personal responsibility to fill in the gaps and do their best to make stuff happen.
Life-changing, research-driven nutrition coaching for everyone. We believe that health and good nutrition should be accessible to everyone, which means we spend most of our waking hours thinking about how to consistently deliver the best products that create the largest impact in the lives of our customers.
We teach people how to do exercise and nutrition at the highest level. From our evergreen material that we give away on our blog to our comprehensive level 1 and level 2 certification programs.
In two ways. Qualitatively by talking to people, figuring out what’s really happening, what works and what doesn’t in their life. Quantitatively by looking at broad trends and using data, experimentation and the scientific method to figure out how to do exercise and sport nutrition better.
We research academically, run studies at the university level and in peer-reviewed journals. We've lost count of how many Ph.Ds we have!
We get in there one-on-one or one-to-small-group, we have a person who is a coach taking an active interest in the progress of clients, trying to make progress in their lives using exercise and sport nutrition. We've done this with over 50,000 clients, ranging from professional athletes like the San Antonio Spurs to people who've lost upwards of 152 lbs on our coaching program.
Determining where the product's future needs to be, identifying problems and opportunities.
Mapping the future to today. Low-fidelity solution sketching to figure out what we need to do immediately (i.e. what is the very next thing we have to do as a team.)
Putting the low-fidelity solutions in front of customers to verify whether what we've designed is solving a real problem in their lives.
Listening to feedback from all stakeholders (i.e. customers, product owner, etc), processing that feedback to create an improved version that's ready to go into development.
Demoing final designs with the development team so everyone's clear on what needs to be built and how. Features go through our agile development process until shipment (i.e. goes over the wall).
Some timezone overlap and good internet, those are the requirements of our “office”. Whether you want to work from home or from a beach in Costa Rica — you now can.
Staycations, mountain climbing, reading by a beach — we make sure everyone takes sufficient time to unplug from work and do whatever recharges their batteries.
Our team is consists of people from all walks of life — former police officers, doulas, professors — we believe diversity in lived experiences is one of our team's biggest strengths.
At PN, we have early birds that start at 5am and night owls who don’t eat lunch until 4pm. Then there’s a bunch of people in between. Work on a schedule that makes you most productive.
Whether you’re Apple or Windows, Bose or Sennheiser — we’ll set you up with whatever fancy gear you need to perform at your best
Everyone's a little different, some are early birds and others are night owls. But roughly speaking, a typical day on our product team starts with a 11:30 am standup meeting with the team via Google Hangouts. That's when we'll go over what everyone's doing, if they need anything unblocked, and off to the races we go. The rest of the day can consist of design pairing for a new feature, polishing an existing feature or spiking out an idea to an unsolved problem. All those things are done with a combination of Slack, Hangouts/Zoom, ScreenHero, and whichever design tool of choice (Sketch/Illustrator). Also Google Docs, they always sneak themselves in there.
Every one of our 60 team members works remotely. Depending on who you're talking to, that could mean they're working from home so they can spend time with their kids or they're working from Colombia so they satisfy an insatiable wanderlust.
If you're wondering why remote? We usually ask, why not? PN is built in a way to let our team live in whichever way suits them best while doing their life's work.
Technology has advanced to a point where the internet is readily available in large parts of the world, super powered computers are under 2 lbs and collaboration tools like Slack, Google Docs and Hangouts are commonplace. It's never been easier to work together without being in the same physical space.

Holacracy is a type of organizational structure. One that has roles instead of ranks, looks flat instead of hierarchal. It was an answer to this question: What if we could maintain the entrepreneurial spirit of the organization while growing rapidly?
