Why Work at Good?

It’s simple: Good people attract good people.

We have the best people in the business in every department and at every level of the company. Exactly the kind of highly intelligent, thoughtful, accomplished and dedicated professionals that other highly intelligent, thoughtful, accomplished and dedicated professionals want to work with.

If our groundbreaking technology isn’t our greatest strength and most valuable asset, then it’s the extraordinary team of people who design it, market it and sell it. We think it’s all those things.

Yes, we have a flexible workplace that’s designed to maximize work/life balance, and award-winning wellness programs and top compensation packages that will also make you feel pretty good about yourself. You’ll also find plentifully stocked kitchens and some serious ping-pong competition, on top of a strong sense of team spirit that extends out the office doors and deep into the roots of the communities where we live.

The real bottom line is that if someone is interested in working with the best people and most creative minds in the industry, on the world’s most advanced mobile security technology, at a company that values its people above all else and provides unlimited growth potential, then Good is naturally the place to be. That’s what brings people here and keeps them here.
