Coach, Los Angeles

SwimTeam is a fitness startup on a mission to make swimming fun through a 45-minute circuit class. Think of it as the pool equivalent of SoulCycle or Barry’s Bootcamp: a premium experience that is high-energy, varied and social.

Where do classes take place? In the best pools across a city, starting in LA.

The coach is everything, and now is the critical time in the lead-up to our formal launch. We’re seeking curious, creative, charismatic swimming veterans to shape the class experience.
