GoPro – Why Work With Us?


GoPro’s culture is powered by an incredible group of altruistic employees who donate time, money and cameras to charitable organizations through the GoPro Employees for a Cause program.
 
Not only is this an on-going monthly effort but at the end of each year, the program culminates in a 12 Days of Cause event, during which teams and groups of employees spend time each day giving back to their communities. From sorting food for the hungry to building bicycles and teaching ocean safety to kids in underrepresented communities, GoPro employees power our CSR (corporate social responsibility) efforts.

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

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great culture
    - Emphasis on employee engagement (even while remote / shelter in place)
    - Really cool opportunities to connect with employees (remote yoga & workouts, DIB listening & learning sessions, remote book clubs, game contests, etc)
    - Competitive compensation, bonus and RSUs
    - Amazing benefits
    - Huge opportunity for financial gain with the stock / RSUs being relatively low
    - Managers / Leaders always look internal first for promotions / upward mobility

    Cons

    Pre COVID-19, I would have said that we keep doing the same thing year-over-year expecting different results....

    This year is different, and every employee feels it. There is a new energy at GoPro and we are so excited for what is to come. COVID-19 forced GoPro to adopt a DTC (direct to consumer) model to prioritize our GoPro.com efforts over sales through retail, etc. For the first time in a long time, IT MAKES SENSE. The opportunity is right in front of us, and all teams are executing at an incredible level to make this turnaround successful.

    Our strong brand will pull us through COVID-19 and then we are going to be extremely well-positioned for amazing things in 2021 and beyond. I can’t wait.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and engaging with employees. Remain bullish on DTC and the opportunity for post-COVID. Keep making great changes for the future of GoPro.
