A letter from our Founder and CEO

Think it. See it. Do it.

We dream. We have passionate ideas about what’s possible in this world. Our passions lead us to create experiences and realities that expand our world and inspire those around us.

GoPro helps people capture and share their lives’ most meaningful experiences with others—to celebrate them together. Like how a day on the mountain with friends is more meaningful than one spent alone, the sharing of our collective experiences makes our lives more fun.

The world’s most versatile cameras are what we make.

Enabling you to share your life through incredible photos and videos is what we do.

This is your life...GoPro.

Nicholas Woodman

    Pros

    Great company culture - everyone is very friendly and works hard to put out a great product. Recruiting is a breeze, especially at the entry level. Strong brand and a fast growing company. On your first day, every new employee receives a brand new, latest and greatest top of the line GoPro camera and a bag full of accessories, along with half a day of training in using the camera as well as editing an actual movie. You have the option to work on a Mac or a PC. Every Thursday is Live It day where employees can take two hours off in the afternoon to pursue your passion, whatever that may be. People go for a hike, surf, take a guitar lesson etc. yoga classes are offered on campus as well. The Experience Center adjacent to the main HQ lobby is an impressive place to take visitors - complete with a set of motorcycles and an Indy car tricked out in head to toe GoPro. Don't miss the Nick Woodman car show on the way in either. The future is bright for GoPro!

    Cons

    Fast growth is accompanied by challenges in scaling - every team runs lean. The executive team is generous with headcount but nobody could ever hire fast enough to keep up with the demands on each group. Business processes need to scale as well. This is something the company is actively working on but with so many new people sometimes you see two different people working on the same thing. The San Mateo office is bursting at the seams as evidenced by the parking situation but there are short term and long term plans to fix that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great leaders who can build strong teams and scalable processes!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GoPro in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, and week later got email on a project that would relate to the job positions.

    They said they were interested based on resume. Was told to complete a 3 step project that would not take more than two days. There was no email saying, "we recived your submission."

    4 days later, did a follow up to the recuritor, no email back, and then the rejection email saying your not qualified. So not sure if they even look at my work I summited, took about 10 hours to complete.

    I would say, lot of application, so make sure you resume and all your work stands out. Don't expect any one-to-one process at the very start.

    Hope that helps.
