Why We Work
Go was started with the goal of designing a place of work where we wanted to work. That doesn’t mean creating a fantasy, and it sure doesn’t mean we’ve achieved all our aims. It does mean that every day we come in and we’re responsible to each other to balance what we value. We want to be valued by our clients, to contribute effective solutions to meaningful technical problems, to balance our work and personal lives, a sense of place with our coworkers and our individual development, to learn and be challenged, to care about our work but not be crushed by stress, and to have a high bar for how we administer company functions.
Do you want these same things?
It takes work, but it’s the work we want.
How You'll Work
You'll learn - We’ll show you our methods – energy assessments, commissioning, distributed energy, regulatory and policy, etc. We want you to learn the process and demonstrate you can execute on the work.
You’ll work together - Decisions, successes, and failures are shared by teams. We’ll ask you to be inquisitive and open minded. You’ll get a lot of peer review.
You’ll earn trust - The process will click and you’ll be able to lead project teams and teach other engineers how to do the work.
You’ll discover - You’ll have moments of discovery, insights that you are part of what makes a difference to a client’s decision. It is the glue that keeps us and our clients together because it’s the moment we did something together that we couldn’t do alone. These are the best days of work, the days we remember and tell stories about.
You’ll lead – Once you experience discovery, you’ll think less about the importance of your own achievements and more about what you can do together with others.
If we do it right, its humbling - By this time you’ll have mastery over a number of technical systems, be able to distill critical information and communicate it to a client, be able to manage different types of projects, and you’ll be paying it forward to the next engineer. You’ll also understand your successes aren’t just yours.

At Go, you’ll find we have some answers and more questions. We explore, we dive deep, we doubt, we invest, we have setbacks, we have fun, we make mistakes, we learn. Our company and your career here will look well-lived, more like a garden growing than a planned building constructed.
