Mariana Tek is revolutionizing the fitness industry by building the next generation in online reservation management, class scheduling, and point-of-sale software. We are looking for a Back End Engineer who is excited about the challenge of building and scaling our platform, creating a solid web API that can be easily integrated, and disrupting the current marketplace. You will be a critical part of a smart and disciplined team responsible for developing the Mariana platform serving millions of customers. Our team comes with extensive experience in building products for the fitness industry, and places a strong focus on innovation and automation. You will play a substantial role in making our product best-of-breed as we go up against major industry players.


– Work with technologies such as Python, Django, Redis, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, AWS, Docker, and more
– Write lots of tests! It helps us to identify when we break things, when we push bad changes, or when we just plain make mistakes. We spend a lot of time writing and running tests and we’ll want you to do the same.
– Ensure maintainability of code – we like to put in the effort up front to prevent us from having to do more work later
– Peer review pull requests with constructive feedback
– Take part in an on-call rotation to help fight fires and outages


– An appreciation for the power of automation and a desire to make machines do as much of your job as possible
– Strong communication skills – we’re a highly collaborative team and have a strong commitment to documentation
– Take part in and collaborate on our workflow. We do such things as 2-week sprints, daily stand-ups, and retrospectives


About Us

What we’re like

We’re a small, close knit team working out of downtown DC. We take pride in our product – fast, beautiful software – and in our team – we’re diverse, inclusive, and nice.

We work hard but have busy personal lives as well – we’ve got 6 kids, 6 dogs, 6 cats, a horse, a rabbit, a turtle, a hardcore band and a crabcake blog to take care of.

We’re hoping to grow our team by hiring smart, kind, enthusiastic folks. We’re not saving the world, but we are working together to build a product that we’re proud of.


We value our employees in many ways, including providing a robust benefits package that includes:

– Competitive salaries
– Stock options – having equity in the company enables the entire team to share in ownership and success
– Health, dental and vision insurance – premiums are fully paid for employees and heavily subsidized for dependents
– 401k with company match
– Three weeks of vacation, federal holidays, and sick time
– Life insurance and disability benefits
– Generous parental leave
– Smartbenefits for pre-tax allocations to Metro expenses, and Lyfts when you’re working late
– Employee referral program
– Weekly staff lunches, coffees, and in office snacks
