The job hunt can be a daunting task when you’re unsure if a company is a good fit for you. Without any connections, it’s often hard to understand what the working culture is like on the inside.

Startup culture seems to hold a similar truth among young companies: people love where they work. Here’s a look at two Boston-based growing startups and an inside perspective on benefits and the company culture.

CoachUp, Connecting Athletes With Private Coaches


CoachUp connects more than 100,000 athletes with more than 13,000 private coaches for one-on-one and small group training to help those looking to develop skills and reach their goals. The startup trains in more than 30 sports, including baseball, diving, kickboxing, martial arts, triathlon, yoga and many more. 

Jordan Fliegel and Arian Radmand founded the company on their belief that private coaching is the secret to success for improvement and helping any person with an athletic goal reach their full potential.

Now, the nation's leading private coaching company, CoachUp's Athlete Advisory Council, which weighs in on business endeavors and program needs and services, includes New England Patriots' Julian Edelman, Boston Bruins President Cam Neely and Philadelphia 76ers' Nerlens Noel. 

Last year alone, CoachUp was recognized in Forbes' "30 under 30", Boston Business Journal's Healthiest Employer and Boston Innovation's "50 on Fire."
