An Insider's view of GoGuardian

What are some social events your company does?

We love hanging out together here at GoGuardian and have a different social event almost every week! We’re not short on company events like Oscar viewing parties, basketball or crafts club and Harry Potter birthday celebrations. We also love smaller team events and have done everything from ice skating to biking on the beach to Korean BBQ /karaoke!

Tamar

Business Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our vision brings tall challenges; one of which is finding ways to sift through nearly insurmountable amounts of data, finding the important nuggets of information, then surfacing it to the right people. By using a combination of machine learning and cutting-edge data science (really), we're building better products for our users.

Zach

Senior Designer

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of GoGuardian's core values is to experiment and learn. I think the engineering team embodies this well, and one skill I have learned is to be open to all the learning opportunities available and not be afraid to try new things.

Melinda

Software Engineer

What's something quirky about your company?

Being a company geared towards improving education it’s only fitting that we embrace the theme of the most magical school on the face of the Earth. Of course I’m referring to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There’s nothing like wrapping up a game of Fifa in the Forbidden Forest and then jumping into a meeting in the Ministry of Magic.
