PR & Events Manager

Summary

Take charge of our PR strategy and elevate our brand to new heights globally.

About Vitruvian

We’re on a mission to revolutionize resistance training and provide people with a more effective, engaging, and convenient way to workout. We launched our first connected-strength trainer in Nov 2020 and our second-generation product, the Trainer+ in Nov 2021. We’re a relatively new player in the connected-fitness space, with patented technology, VC money behind us, and big ambitions.

The Vitruvian Trainer+ is more than the entire weight room of the gym at home in a compact device. It’s an intelligent, adaptive, digital weight that constantly responds to the way people move.

Using artificial intelligence, the Trainer+ reads the range of motion and speed users are performing an exercise, rapidly adjusting the weight, up to 50 times per second. Both challenging and supporting people to maximize each rep while also acting as a spotter.

Delivery up to 200kg/440lbs of resistance and paired with the Vitruvian app, users have access to 200+ exercises, classes curated by world-class fitness coaches, 4-12 week goal-orientated programs and data tracking and performance insights. In a device that slides under a bed or couch when not in use.

Global from day one, we’re looking for talented individuals to join our growing team.
