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.

On November 6th, 2015 UP Aerospace Inc. launched the 20-foot (6 meter) tall SL-10 rocket into near-space. The mission: deploy the Maraia Capsule testing the aerodynamics and stability of the payload on re-entry to the atmosphere. The rocket reached an altitude of 396,000ft (120,700 meters) and speeds up to Mach 5.5 (3800mph or 6115km/h) at engine burnout.

I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than 3 years)
GoPro sets the standard for work/life balance. I have taken 30+ days off this year and it hasnt been an issue. You work hard when needed and youre allowed to enjoy life. Workplace culture is a very relaxed and everyone is open to collaboration.
Being too chill can be a bad thing. Everyone seems to be coasting and no one really is pushing the line. Most of the talent has left in the past year and the company is really riding the slowing momentum of 'the brand'.
The company has not backfilled positions after the layoffs so everyone is spread super thin and isnt able to really do one or two things to their maximum potential. Everything is done to the minimum needed to get by.
Advice to Management
Stop listening to Nick's 'gut decisions' and use data to drive the ship.
I applied online. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in October 2017.
1) Quick phone call with the recruiter. He was new and could not find the initial screening one-liner questions!
2) Technical interview with hiring manager. He asked 2 coding questions. Pretty simple DS questions
3) Onsite 5 rounds interview. Interviewers were friendly except for the hiring manager. DS coding questions-medium level were asked along with detailed questions on my experience and projects. Hiring manager asked all the basic questions of system level. Over all experience was good. I was expecting positive reply as I did well but they said although interviewers were impressed they want someone with more experience in automation. Dint they check my resume before calling me?
