Why join us?
  • Appleā€™s App Store has ranked Go #1 for over 1,300 days and counting. It outranks GEICO, State Farm, Allstate, and companies that spend $5B a year on ads

  • If you look at the next major industry where an app is outranking the incumbents, their team size is 600 people. Go is less than 50. At our current revenue growth rate, Go is on track to pass the 30th largest insurer in 4 years. That insurer has 100,000 customers, a $3B market cap, and is 82 years old. But no one hear whistles and waves at yellow cars for a ride, writes out deposit slips for their checks, or pushes a steel cart down an aisle to fill it with groceries. We built Go because is the product we wanted

  • If you look at market caps of the 30th largest company in messaging, ridehsaring, or social networking it is probably $0. In US car insurance the 30th largest company has a market cap of $3B. Go can build a meaningful business while having a real impact on customers lives by helping them save enough money to give their family and kids more education, food, or gifts
