Macrostax is the world's leading platform for counting macros. We create custom macro plans, matched with personalized recipes and meal suggestions, to help our customers achieve their goals. Not sure what “macros" are, no problem! Macros are shorthand for macronutrients; instead of simply counting calories, we make sure our customers eat the right proportion of carbohydrates, protein, and fat throughout the day.
Since our founding, we have helped more than 100,000 individuals eat the "right way" for their body type and their personal goals. Our software platform, our library of proprietary macro-friendly recipes, and our team of nutrition coaches have helped our customers repair their relationships with food and transform their bodies.
Our business and our company have been growing rapidly and we are looking to expand our product team which is based in Boulder, CO with a few remote team members. The team currently consists of Matt, our VP of Engineering, four engineers (plus two openings), and Sarah, our Director of Product, who are all passionate about helping people improve their health and building world-class software.
