Gogo – Why Work For Us?



undefined

It all began in 1991 at a barbecue joint in Denison, Texas, where company founder Jimmy Ray sketched onto a paper napkin his visionary idea for a telephone system on aircraft.

Through a unique partnership with cellular providers, Gogo began as Aircell, providing analog-based voice communications on private aircraft in North America.

In 2006, Gogo was awarded an exclusive frequency license by the FCC. After securing this spectrum, the company designed, patented, and deployed an uninterrupted cellular-based network across the U.S. to provide broadband Internet services to the aviation market.

In 2008, Gogo made its debut on commercial aircraft, bringing robust Internet access to the skies and transforming the experience for air travelers. 

Today, Gogo has more than 3,000 commercial and 4,200 business aircraft are also flying with its solutions, including the world's largest fractional ownership fleets. We continue to develop products and services to keep passengers productive, informed and entertained while they're in the air.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gogo (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process at Gogo was efficient, comfortable, and enjoyable. I had a screening call, a call with the hiring manager, and lastly, an on-site visit at which time I met with 5 different Gogo interviewers that would potentially be on my team if hired. Overall, I was pleased at the level of communication with the recruiter and the efficiency of the process. I highly recommend Gogo - it's an innovative, cutting-edge company that takes care of its people and customers!
