We’re working with a company that just raised a ~$6M round and has the same business model as peloton but in the pilates space. They have an ecommerce site built on shopify that faciliates purchases of their ~$3,000 device and then a react native app that runs on the device itself on a tablet. They’re looking for someone who can come in and help them evaluate their current technical infrastructure and understand whether any gaps exist within their existing team.
