    An Insider's view of Lose It!

    How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

    You’ve got to do your job and do it well, but doing that absolutely should not get in the way of your life.


    Senior Product Manager

    What are some things you learned at the company?

    Our iterative, testing mentality has made me much more flexible in the way I think. I've learned how to break down large marketing initiatives into short-term projects that we can learn from and use to define the next stage.


    VP of Marketing

    How do you empower your team to be more creative?

    Every employee at Lose It! is an owner and responsible for our success. We are all in the driver's seat directing the work that we do and moving the company forward and each of us are expected to live our values, even when nobody is looking.



    What are Lose It! Perks + Benefits

    Lose It! Benefits Overview

    Lose It! offers incredible benefits, flexible hours, and a work hard/ play hard culture. If you picture yourself working on solving one of the world’s biggest issues with a smart team, then heading out for apps and drinks with your peers, we’re the company for you! Join our creative, fun, fast-moving company with ample opportunity to learn and develop areas you’d like to work on professionally.

    Our employees say it best:

    "There isn't one perk that outdoes them all. The overwhelming sentiment at Lose It! is thoughtfulness: the leadership here makes sure each perk contributes to our day, helping us be happier and more efficient. From a custom desk setup, to our favorite drinks and snacks, to frequent outings that bring our people closer together, it makes the office feel more like a home and the team feel more like family."
    - Andrea Whitley, Marketing Manager

    “Coming from a large company and changing jobs within the last year, I have seen a lot of long lists of different benefits/perks that some companies offer. When reviewing these lists of benefits it doesn’t take long to see that the goal of most of them is to keep employees happy while spending more time at the office. The company trip to Paris felt completely different. It really felt like exploring the city/country with our family was just as important as the work we were doing while we were there.”
    - Rob King, Infrastructure Engineer

    "My favorite perk has to be fully paid for health care. And it’s not just fully paid, it’s a top flight plan. Knowing that I’m getting the best possible healthcare for my family and that it’s not even a monthly expense for me is huge."
