Ridge Carpenter is a physical trainer and product manager for Halo, Amazon’s fitness tracker, “You should like something about your job if you want it to be sustainable in the long-term,” he says, reflecting on his experience as a trainer.
He gained a referral from a coworker and mentor for a position at Amazon as a fitness consultant, which led to his current position as a product manager at Amazon Halo. When he applied for the position, the only detail he knew was that the job related to fitness. He spent most of his time working and learning about data for machine learning algorithms, which was brand-new to him. Now he gets to mix physical training into his new profession and work on innovative features every day.
