We are looking to extend our small team with a designer who can relate to software requirements in the broad fields of sports training, human movement, and communication. We want to find good solutions for our users, may that be trainers, athletes of all ages, abilities, and professional levels, managemers, or physios.
Trayn is a tool for sports coaches and athletes to make planning easy. Trainers can efficiently plan and adapt training programs to individual athletes. Athletes can view their schedule, track their progress, communicate with trainers, and access more information if needed.
Trayn is used in sports organizations of any size. Small groups of up to three users (athletes or trainers) can use Trayn for free. For larger organizations, Trayn is even more useful and offers additional management, planning, and communication tools.

What do we offer?
It’s important for us to achieve our goals. It’s not important that you sit in an office for 8 hours a day. With that in mind, we value a high level of responsibility and dedication. We’re not counting minutes.
- Remote first, office optional: our whole team is remote. We rent an office space in Vienna, Austria.
- You choose your working hours: we agree on due dates, meeting times, and delivery items. For client contact, we expect you to communicate available times responsibly.
- Diversity and inclusion: We welcome all people to apply for roles with Trayn and we appreciate non-traditional career paths.
Because of our small team size, we start with a freelance contract limited to a specific time period or project. When everything runs smoothly, and we know how to best work together, we can switch to a permanent contract based on the expected workload. If you want to stay a freelancer, that also works.
