Lead iOS Developer


Who are we?

Baliston was founded in 2021 by footwear, biomechanics, and design experts to deliver a new footwear experience that starts and ends with circularity - a process that starts with a sustainable design and ends with Baliston collecting and properly recycling every single pair of shoes produced.

At Baliston®, we're leveling up the shoe game as an innovative direct-to-consumer footwear company. Baliston is on a mission to bring advanced biomechanical technology to footwear, while taking sustainability to a whole new level. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Baliston also has offices in Kansas City, assembly and warehousing in Denver, and an international team in France and Luxembourg.
