WHO WE ARE:

Zwift is the fitness company born from gaming. We use the fun of gaming and the power of communities to inspire and encourage everybody to turn their fitness goals into achievements, from start to finish, wherever your finish line is.

We’re a fast growing, solidly backed startup defined by a passionate group of creative people. Zwift HQ is located in sunny Long Beach, CA with offices in NYC, London, and Rio de Janeiro.

THE TEAM
