Let’s Do This was launched in 2017. Our vision is to inspire more people to have epic experiences than any other community on the planet by the end of 2025. We want to be the online company that gets everyone offline. The first vertical we have focused on is mass participation sports events, where we are the global leader. It couldn't be a more exciting time to join Let’s Do This, with the pandemic confirming what we have always known; experiences are better and more meaningful when done with others. The event space is roaring back and we are determined to help people engage with more epic experiences, and enhance those experiences further by enabling participation together.

We have raised $30M to date and were the fastest growing company on YCombinator, with a record 24 times over subscribed on our seed round. We have attracted investment from the likes of Usain Bolt and Serena Williams, as well as investment from Tier 1 VC’s such as NFX and YC.

We are at an exciting stage of our growth and are obsessed with building the most talented team in the world. We have an exceptional team with experience ranging from London’s fastest growing start-ups, to the world's biggest tech companies, such as Facebook, Google, Deliveroo, King and Skyscanner.

The Team

At Let’s Do This our Product Designers are an integral part of our product development process. We believe designers should be driving decisions using the data they gather from research activities, analytics, and product experimentation. Designers form strong bonds with cross-functional peers in Product Management, Data Science, Engineering and others to become experts in their product domain.

Our product teams are mission based, interdisciplinary teams, of 6+ people, focussed on core parts of the customer journey – with clear responsibility, goals and objectives. We operate a ‘bottom up’ culture and believe in hiring the best people, then getting out of their way!
