GoPro – Why Work For 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

    Camera is better than most know. Life work balance is great. Employees are encouraged to take 3 hours on Thurs and use camera for surfing, etc.

    Cons

    Innovation can be cut short by yearly release cycle.
