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
Founder and CEO


Capture + share your world.

From incredibly versatile, powerful cameras, to mounts and accessories for nearly any activity, to the GoPro App and software—GoPro makes it easier than ever to capture and share your world like never before.

    I have been working at GoPro as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Founder is still hands-on very much involved with the vision. Brand is reputable. Relaxed atmosphere. Free snacks and drinks in every kitchen. Weekly activities, paid two hours a week to go use your GoPro camera and do something fun, free yoga.

    Cons

    The company is expanding rapidly and with that comes growing pains. There is a lot of miscommunication and the structure is still trying to be established. Frustrating at times, but overall little stress and fun people to work for/with.
