Have you ever tried using a pedometer? It’s a neat idea, but it’s not very useful to know how many steps you’ve taken. To get a sense of how many calories you’ve burned, you have to do some calculations, and it’s pretty likely that whatever you calculate will be far from accurate. As technology continues to improve, we’re going to see more and more devices that provide data about our every day lives. The pedometer was the start, but things are going to get better and better. Fitbit is an impressive next step (pun intended!). We found out about them from Lifehacker’s list of Top 10 Up and Coming Products, and we’re pretty impressed. Fitbit automatically tracks your fitness and your sleep and then uploads the data to your computer wirelessly. They’re a startup that just launched at the TechCrunch50 Conference this week, and now that they’re out of stealth mode they’re looking for new people to join their team.

Are You a Good Fit for Fitbit?

Fitbit (which is the device and the company name, we’re talking about the device now) is based on an accelerometer like you’d find in the Nintendo Wii controller. It’s able to measure all kinds of data about your movement during the day. It then sends this data wirelessly to your computer when ever you come within close enough range. Web based software on your computer makes sense of the data and gives you insights into how you’re doing in terms of fitness.

Here’s a video with Fitbit founder James Park that will give you all the details about what Fitbit does:

There’s still a lot more that we’d like to know about the Fitbit, and we’ll probably have to wait until closer to December, when they officially release the product, to get all of the details. So what about jobs with Fitbit? There’s not a lot of info, but their About page says that they’re looking for talented people in software, hardware, marketing and business development. Early stage startups can be very entry level friendly, so this could be a really great chance to get in early on something big. We don’t know if Fitbit’s team is any bigger than their two founders right now, but you might as well consider joining them.

We can’t for the life of us figure out where Fitbit is actually located (edit: we’re now pretty sure that they’re based out of San Francisco, CA), but if you’re moved (pun intended, again!) by their product, reach out to them at jobs@fitbit.com. They’ll probably be thrilled to hear from you.

Speaking of cool gadgets, we won the iPod touch in The Talent Buzz’s guest blogging contest with this guest post on using Twitter for networking. That means that we’ll be giving away an iPod touch in the coming weeks. We’re still figuring out what kind of contest we want to run, but we’re open to suggestions in the comments section or via e-mail at info@onedayonejob.com.

We've identified Fitbit as having career opportunities in the following categories:

    Any word on this iPod contest?

  2. I think it’s on its way. Once I have it in hand, I’ll get the details of the contest out.
