At Range, we’re building software to improve the way teams work together. We believe not only that healthier teams are better places to work, but also that healthier teams do better work. We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer who’s excited to come shape the future of work with us.
We’re an early-stage company and it’s an exciting time here at Range. We’ve been iterating on our alpha product for the past few months and recently launched our beta program. We’re enthusiastic about our current approach to helping teams work better together but also acknowledge that things may look drastically…
The other day, I casually confessed to some coworkers that I had taken 400 fitness classes through ClassPass in 2015. Yep, I doubled and even tripled up some days. A year ago, I would’ve never thought myself capable of this.
One of my coworkers asked if my life had changed by any of this. I joked that I couldn’t do a single push-up at the beginning of 2015. I mean, I really couldn’t, but one should hope that after all of this I’d be able to do at least one now. That was expected. But there was also the unexpected.

And you were right about that. But here’s something I’ll tell you you were wrong about —it isn't easy. High school was easy.

I was recently in the car with my dad when he prompted me with, “If you could go back in time, would you have chosen a different major?” Without hesitation, I replied a solid “No.”
With the irrefutable presence of technology in our daily lives, I was admittedly surprised that he still wasn't all too pleased that I planted myself right in the middle of it. I say ‘still’ as this wasn't his first expression of doubt.
