About Charity Miles:
Charity Miles is a free iPhone and Android fitness app that enables people to earn money for charity when they walk, run or bike. We are supported by companies like Humana, Johnson & Johnson, Timex Sports and Kenneth Cole. We currently have over 150k members and over 3 million interactions with our app.
We won the SXSW People’s Choice Award and a Webby for the Best Health and Fitness App. We are regularly featured in mainstream media as a top fitness app, and a game-changing app in general. We have been featured in both the Apple and Google Play Stores as one of the top fitness apps. And the Today Show just named Charity Miles one of their “Must Have Apps” of the year.
Most importantly, our members have earned over $1M for charity and we have built an ever-growing movement of people who move through life with a cause in their heart.
So far, we have achieved this success with a small, bootstrap team of developers in Austin, TX. But now it’s time to bring and build the team in house. This is a big opportunity for any developers who want to help build something meaningful, well known, impactful and profitable.
