Working With Us
What is it like to work at GoodGuide?
The work environment at GoodGuide is focused but relaxed. Our uniqueness comes from having a culture built around our team of world-class scientists and engineers, working together to make the world a better place. On any given day, you might find us building a new data API, designing a system for rating the environmental impact of your iPhone, or meeting with customers to wireframe a transparency scorecard. Any successful project we do involves collaborating with someone from a different background, which means you're always being exposed to something new.
At GoodGuide, everyone is expected to take initiative and work efficiently, but there's always time for a game of darts or ping-pong, or a walk to the Ferry Building for lunch.
What type of people thrive at GoodGuide?
GoodGuide is a place for self-motivated, smart people who think independently and work collaboratively, and are interested in making the world a better place.
Working at GoodGuide provides the opportunity to influence how products are manufactured and how consumers decide which products to buy and companies to support.
We typically work on projects in small teams, often with a combination of scientists and engineers. Each employee is responsible, in part, for helping define requirements, come up with implementation plans, and build products.
Working in small teams means that there isn't always someone providing buttoned-up product specifications. Everyone on the team is responsible for coming up with solutions to design and engineering problems and executing on them.
GoodGuide provides competitive salaries and benefits, including:
- Health, vision, and dental insurance
- Life insurance
- Free snacks, drinks, and lunches
- A flexible vacation policy (work hard and take time when you need to)
- Any laptop or desktop you want, with big monitors and lots of (standing or sitting) workspace
- Subsidy for taking public transit or signing up for car sharing
- Located in downtown San Francisco near the Ferry Plaza, BART, and Muni light rail
What if I don't live in San Francisco?
We're committed to hiring the best people, wherever they're currently located. We find that having diverse backgrounds provides new ideas and perspectives (and great food from around the world). New employees are supported with moving subsidies and any necessary immigration/visa sponsorship.
