We started Go because existing social media platforms made us feel less connected to our friends and loved ones. They made us pine after likes and comments, while feeling more isolated than before we started using them.
Social media actually ended up doing the opposite of what it tells us it does - we became less social than ever before.So we decided to use all of the power of modern engineering, data science, and design to build a social tool can actually enrich our real lives.
We built a tool for people to enjoy a cup of coffee with an old friend, a bike ride with a new one, Netflix-binge with family, a potluck with close friends, plan a great night out with a new flame, see a concert, and still find time for the best new happy hour out there.
No noise, no ulterior motives.We’re led by an incredible, passionate, and prestigious team, and we’re shooting the moon.
We’re looking for people like us, who want to do good and do well, while building something hard and helpful and totally unique.
