Opportunity

Help make sure grandma doesn’t go hungry by working closely with the founders of a breakeven Y-Combinator backed start-up to massively grow a product helping older adults use internet-based consumer services.


GoGoGrandparent helps older adults use consumer services to make their lives easier. Things that seem so easy to us young folk become increasingly difficult as we age. Daily activities like getting around and feeding yourself start to get complicated and frustratingly difficult. Internet services that have taken off in the last decade have so much potential to help elderly adults solve these problems, but they just aren’t being catered to. We built GoGoGrandparent’s first product to help older adults who can’t use smart phones order Uber & Lyft rides, which would otherwise be inaccessible to those who struggle to use smartphones. And after 2 years of strong growth, we decided to launch another product offering ridiculously easy meal management that has been so successful we’re taking it out of beta six months early. As the Product Manager, you will own this service, face & tackle a wealth of unique challenges as it transitions out of beta & into a fast growing product helping an under-served population.

Join us and help build out our new service. In the course of doing so, you’ll take GoGo from a transportation service for older adults to a new model for senior care.
