The Scoop

As a Product Designer at Katalyst, you'll have the opportunity to help launch a world-changing health & fitness company. We’re looking for someone to create simple, elegant, and intuitive interactive interfaces for our product. This role is focused on visual interactive interface design: how users interact with devices, how users process information, and ultimately how Katalyst’s engagement products “look” and “feel”. If you’re a designer with a passion for all things sports performance, fitness, and consumer tech, let’s talk!

About Us

Katalyst is the world’s most efficient workout. Our FDA-cleared training system and full-body suit uses Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to deliver specifically-tuned, low-frequency impulses to each of your major muscle groups. These impulses imitate the brain signals that cause your muscles to contract and significantly increase your muscle activity. When combined with simple, bodyweight movements, Katalyst multiplies the results of any exercise. The result is a complete, full-body workout in just 20 minutes, with no external weights or impact on your joints. Learn more at
