New users, on average, shed 8lbs. within their first three months using Asken Diet. We're looking for passionate, innovative people to join our team.

Our Japanese Asken Diet app is consistently ranked #1 in the Health & Fitness category on both iOS and Google Play stores and we are looking to bring that success to North America.

Small team, deep and interesting challenges: We may be a small team but we're always looking for ways to improve and streamline our product for our users. The problems we solve are complex, fascinating and because it's health-related, its deeply personal to our team and our users.
