• Have been using Ruby on Rails for 2+ years and can’t imagine going back to PHP
  • Love the startup culture in which a single person can make a big difference

  • Want to do meaningful work that helps save lives
  • Believe in the mantra of moving quickly (and trying not to break too much)

Who we are

We’ve been certifying people in CPR, first aid, and bloodborne pathogens since 2003. Not only that, we have been adding more trainings and getting bigger and stronger every year since.

We are a collaborative, growing team that creates and supports the world’s best training. Our online health and safety courses help save lives every day (literally — we have heard countless stories from our customers who have saved the lives of loved ones after using our training).

What we believe

Providing life-saving training is a noble pursuit that is worth getting up every morning to create.

Every team member is crucial and makes a difference, which is why we hire highly-motivated, hard-working, well-rounded people who pursue excellence in everything they do.

Surprising and delighting our customers at every turn makes life-long, loyal supporters who rave about the service to their friends. Not to mention, it helps make the world a better place to live!

Every high school student should learn CPR before they graduate, so we train thousands of students per year, free of charge.

You can work really hard and still have a ton of fun:

  • We have an open floor plan and a ping pong room
  • Play Settlers of Catan or Texas Holdem with co-workers at the office at night
  • Connect with coworkers at family fun days, our annual ice cream social, and our unique Christmas party, which you will not leave empty handed or unhappy

We blaze our own trail, because it’s a lot more fun to lead than to follow. We invented a way that allows a person to be fully certified from home for the first time in the history of CPR training.

What you'll be doing

  • Working on front-end user-facing web pages, working with UX to create great experiences (such as improving the employee reporting dashboard for Bed Bath & Beyond, Goodwill, Jazzercise, or Nike so they can more easily track their employees’ progress)
  • Working with our sales, marketing, & support teams to listen to the pain points of customers, hear ideas for improvements, and consult & creatively problem solve to come up with the best solution
  • Working with our team in the United Kingdom to help build similar but different functionality for their classroom and online training
