Glofox is a fully remote company with its EMEA headquarters in Dublin.

“Being totally remote allows us to welcome talented people from anywhere in the world, whilst our responsibility to support them to live healthy, well-balanced lives is something we consider to be crucial in creating an exceptional working environment,” said Glofox CEO and co-founder Conor O’Loughlin, a former professional rugby player.

Glofox offers employee benefits such as unlimited annual leave, monthly half-day Fridays, ‘pawternity’ leave for people welcoming new pets to their home, and gym and wellness benefits.

The company’s team doubled in size in 2021 and this latest recruitment round will bring its total headcount to 350. O’Loughlin said this marks an “exciting step” for the Irish company.

“Glofox employees will have significant opportunities to enhance their careers across a fast-growing and dynamic sector. Each member of the team will play a key role in further driving our commercial expansion or in the development of new industry-leading solutions,” he said.

There are currently engineering, design and programme management roles listed on the Glofox careers page.

As well as its EMEA headquarters in Dublin, Glofox is recruiting for remote roles in Melbourne in Australia and Arizona in the US.

Glofox’s software has been built with tools to support both fitness franchises and independent gyms.

In 2020, the start-up announced a $10m top-up of its Series A funding round and launched a new platform that allows gyms to livestream and publish on-demand content for those working out from home.

Speaking to The Irish Times, O’Loughlin said the company is now in discussions to raise an additional $30m, which would bring its funding to date to more than $50m.
