#4 of 5Houston, TX | Product Manager | Onsite
About the company: GoCo is raising the bar for Houston Tech! We have an amazing team of developers, designers and sales folks that are on a mission to simplify and automate all the annoying admin work small businesses have to put up with (and make the workplace way more fun for those companies' employees along the way).
We've recently raised $1.8M and we need your help!
About the position: As a PM at GoCo, you'll be a mini-CEO. You'll need to help us figure out what we should build and how we should build it. And you'll probably make mistakes along the way. But that's OK. We're all about learning quick. The ideal GoCo PM would demonstrate these 4 main traits: - Excellent communicator: You'll need to be a great listener so you can understand users' problems. And once you understand those problems, you'll need to convey your proposed solutions via email, PowerPoint decks, whiteboarding or just sitting down and talking with devs, design, and execs. - Half analytical, half creative: You'll quantify and prioritize what's going to deliver the most bang for the buck. Sometimes, those features won't be very creative. What's worked before can work now. But sometimes, you'll really have to really think out of the box. - Design: You don't need to be a designer. You don't need to know how to make things beautiful. But you do need to know how to distill complicated flows into something that's intuitive and simple. - Bias for action: You need to get stuff done! As a PM, you'll report directly to the seasoned Chief Product Officer and have massive opportunities for personal growth, leadership, and career advancement in a rapidly growing company.
You don't need any direct PM experience (though that's awesome). You just need to demonstrate the traits outlined above. Any experience with HR or insurance is a big plus.

Software Engineers / Designers / Sales / Operations
Downtown Seattle, WA
We're optimizing the trucking and logistics industry; automating what is, today, a $749B industry that still relies on phone calls and paper.
Some of our open engineering positions:
- Mobile engineer - We have Android and iOS apps, and we’re interested in people competent in either native or react-native mobile development (both is a huge plus). These are beautiful, bulletproof apps that solve real-world problems for truck drivers and carriers.
- Back-end engineer - We’ve got some fun CS problems to solve around route optimization and market making, plus working on the API that connects all these clients.
If you’re a high-performing engineer but don’t have one of these specific tools on your belt, we’d still love to talk. We trust awesome people to learn the tech!
We're a small, close-knit team that hails from both startups and large tech companies, backed by some big names. Jeff Bezos, Pierre Omidyar and Drew Houston are all investors.
I'm one of our full-stack software engineers (employee #2). I've worked at several software companies large and small, but this one feels like a rocket ship. I'm working with some of the smartest people I've ever met, both engineering and business, we're building a great product at an incredible pace, and growing our business like crazy. I'm excited to go to work every day.
We just exited stealth mode a month ago:
