About GoPro

GoPro makes it easy for people to celebrate and share experiences. We believe life is more meaningful when shared. We build cameras, software, and accessories that help the world share itself in immersive and exciting ways.

Quik is a world-class video editing application on iOS (app of the year 2014) and Android (nominated for App of the Year 2017). It has achieved more than 40 million downloads to this day and helps anyone edit great videos on the fly.

"Where Art meets Technology". You've heard that before 🙂 Creative coders, motion engineers, digital artists… Call them how you want, but they are all welcome in the Quik Creative Team. Playing our part between the Quik Video Backend and the UI, we are tinkering users' media behind the curtain with powerful tools to automatically create them (hopefully) beautiful stories. Being part of the Creative team means you we'll be able to drive the video editing and effect creation part of the GoPro apps and cameras towards new directions, with the help of seasoned motion designers, and for the users' pleasure…

Editing engine: improving our music-to-story synchronization algorithm, and overall storytelling experience, with the help of our kick-ass computer scientists ;
Graphics engine: creating and pushing into production new visual effects, colorimetric filters, etc. in collaboration with UX and motion designers ;
Product: explore and prototype new storytelling possibilities using GoPro hardware from the future :).
