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.

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.

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.

    I have been working at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance, incredible benefits, able to take ownership on projects, smart and humble coworkers that are genuinely passionate about the product and people they work with. Given all of the changes in the last two years, its encouraging to see that leadership is finally seeing the changes it needs to make. It's not something that will happen overnight but at least it's happening.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes lacking but this is common across every single company.
