We have our own standards for hiring
Knowledge, experience, and a genuine desire to help other people are all essential to working at Bang. What we're really looking for is how those qualities are expressed. More than anything else, that's through curiosity. We can't really begin to build custom programs for people until we understand as much as we can about their lives as possible. That's not only because context matters but because finding the deepest drivers for your own fitness takes some exploration. That exploration is driven by curiosity.
