Role

👉🏻This is a senior leadership role within our company, with a direct path to becoming Head of Product

Overview

Did you know that 90% of everything on the news is driven by fear or negativity? At Goodable, we’re solving the world’s biggest problem right at the source. We’re building a 24/7 news platform designed to help users live a happier, healthier life. We do it through machine learning that discovers good news anywhere in the world, then optimizes it to improve your mental health. We're a VC-backed startup founded by a former CNN Warzone Correspondent with a huge TAM, a great team, and amazing investors, including one of the biggest names in Hollywood. We currently exist as an app and a live subscription platform that we expect will be in tens of thousands of venues by the end of this year. When we're successful, we're going to help a billion people live happier and healthier lives.
