An Insider's view of Zen Planner

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Pop into our office around 1:15 p.m. any given day and you’ll see team members coming back from their lunch fitness class, martial arts class, or a trail run. We live and breathe fitness, from Ironman athletes to folks just starting their journey. Most people who work at Zen Planner get fitter by being in an environment that normalizes fitness.

Cody Sunkel

Director of Sales

What does your typical day look like?

I typically start my day super early working out at a local CrossFit gym. The work day starts with a stand-up, collaborating with Product Managers, Developers & Designers to make sure we are solving the right problems for our customers. I spend my day doing user research, journey maps, prototyping, tests and tweaking UI. Every day is different.

Erika Bazo

What does career growth look like on your team?

We’re growing so quickly and it’s creating a lot of opportunity for the team. We’re focused on defining new roles, hiring and training the team in order to launch into a new organization structure that will position Marketing in a whole new light within our company. My goals right now are to effectively scale through such rapid growth.

What is your vision for the company?

To make the world a healthier and happier place. We want to give fitness business owners everything they need to have the biggest impact they can on their communities.
