Let’s Do This is the online company getting people offline.
We exist to inspire people across the world to come together and experience moments that make them feel alive. We’re currently going after mass participation sports events (Marathons, Triathlons, 10Ks, 5Ks, swim races), where we’re proud to be the global leader.
We’re at a super exciting and rapid stage of our development. We now take over 1.5 million bookings every year, driving growth for our industry from large-scale races like the UK’s London Marathon Events, Great North Run and San Francisco’s Bay To Breakers to hero races like the Hackney Half, the London Triathlon, or grassroots races like those from RunThrough.
We’ve grown exponentially in the UK since our launch in 2017 and are now in the process of expanding within the US market with the same energy our brand represents. We’ve raised $90M to date and were the fastest growing company on YCombinator, and our investors also include Tier 1 VCs NFX, EQT, and legendary individuals Serena Williams and Usain Bolt.
How did we do it?
With an exceptional team. The Let’s Do This team brings in experience ranging from London’s fastest growing start-ups to the world's biggest tech companies, including Facebook, Google, Deliveroo, King and Skyscanner.

At Let’s Do This our Engineers are an integral part of our product development process. We are not a company that believes engineers should be hidden away from decisions, churning out code for features decided from upon high. Instead, our Engineers form strong bonds with cross-functional peers in Product Management, Data Science, Product Design and others to become experts in their product domain.
Our product teams are truly full stack, focussed on vertical slices of the product rather than horizontally along technology lines. Whilst we don’t expect everyone to be an expert at everything, a willingness to dive into the unknown and tackle technical challenges at any layer in the stack are essential to succeeding as an engineer at Let’s Do This.

EMs collaborate with Product Managers, Product Designers and Data Scientists to help shape the future of the product. In addition, EMs drive technical initiatives in partnership with senior engineers across multiple teams. We are sufficiently early in our journey that much of the work here needs to be started, providing ample opportunity for shaping the future of the company.
