About O2

Every day, more and more people are working out like elite athletes at high intensities, doing things like CrossFit, bootcamp, hot yoga, and HIIT at home and in the gym.

What it’s like to work at O2

We have three values at O2, and we take them very seriously: Honesty, Humility, and Hustle. Our environment is only suited for people who “exceed expectations” and enjoy the fast-paced, high performance culture that comes with working alongside other A players. If you’re up for that, then you’ll love working at O2. We are all-in on our A players and give them the professional opportunity of a lifetime. You’ll be doing the hard work of building a business, and you’ll get experience growing a company that will put you miles ahead of your peers. However, this is not a job for the faint of heart, and you will be expected to demonstrate your drive and commitment on a daily basis. We work remotely, and because we’re all adults, we operate with high degrees of autonomy. At the same time, we don’t mess around - we have been referred to as the “Seal Team Six of CPG companies.” We have a blast when we’re winning and absolutely HATE losing. If you’re one of us, then you know the feeling.

  • We’re organized - this is how we move fast without letting letting things slip 

  • We ask for help/feedback/approval early so as to avoid a scramble


Compensation and benefits

  • Competitive salary, opportunity to earn equity with demonstrated performance, comprehensive benefits package (medical, dental, vision), 401K plan with O2 match, fitness membership reimbursement, unlimited vacation, unlimited O2 product and gear, invaluable experience growing a brand from the ground level
