Founded in 2009 by two friends, Michael Horvath and Mark Gainey, Strava was designed to capture the camaraderie and competition of their days as collegiate rowing teammates. This is a place where athletes can connect and inspire one another with their activities and accomplishments. Now millions strong, Strava connects a global community of athletes finding their personal best, one workout at a time.

What it's like to work at Strava
“As an engineer at the early-stage of their career, I find that Strava is a great place to dive nose deep into advanced technologies with a guarantee to learn and grow immensely. But an even greater sense of reward comes from being able to, right off the bat, contribute and make an impact; your work is quickly put to use for the product and for its users.”
Dulce Palacios, iOS Engineer
“Strava is a relatively small engineering org given the number of athletes we serve. This means I am able to work on projects that align with my personal interests, aid in my career growth, and ship to athletes across the globe.”
Merty McGraw, Web Engineer
