We’re inspired by one another, and by our amazing community of enthusiasts. All Grokker Members are at the center of everything we do.

Working at Grokker

We do things differently at Grokker. We’ve come from some of the biggest, most successful companies in Silicon Valley, including eBay, Yahoo!, Disney and more. We’re committed to building a different kind of company with a different kind of culture than you’ll find at other startups.

We’re a tight-knit team of talented and passionate individuals who embody our core values. In short, we built Grokker for people like us: busy women and men who understand the importance of making time to focus on wellness.

If you’re inspired by the Grokker story, great at what you do and looking for a place where you’ll be valued, challenged, and inspired every day, then this is the place for you.

We develop using an iterative approach, though we are not dogmatic about methodology. Everyone in the company is responsible for coming up with great ideas that will become part of our product.
