The GoodGuide Team
Meet the GoodGuide Team
GoodGuide is made up of people from all kinds of different backgrounds: engineers, product designers, chemists, environmental scientists, and MBAs. And they come from all over the world, from England and Portugal to Iowa. We love to travel, surf, ski, drink great wine, and go camping with our kids, DJ at music festivals, and build great products together. We also have a unique passion for applying our talents to making the world a better place.
