Why the name Golden Hippo?

Golden represents the “golden ratio” - symbolizing nature’s perfect balance in all things. For us, it also symbolizes our belief in the Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Hippopotamus is sacred in many ancient traditions. It means ‘Water Horse’ in ancient Greek, and it is said to teach us how to synthesize the elements of both water and land into our daily lives.

The Hippo’s wisdom is said to include imagination, emotional depth, creation, healing, the ability to move gracefully and powerfully, protection of family, and the birth of new ideas. These are the things we strive for, for both our customers and our team.

What are your company goals?

We want to do more than sell products - we want to improve lives. We aim to always deliver on our 3 core principles: Deliver maximum value, provide amazing customer support and create trusted long term relationships.

I have an appointment at GH. Where should I go?

We’re looking forward to meeting you. Please park in the parking lot in front of our building, and enter through the glass door facing Mulholland. The door will be locked, but there is buzzer to the right of the door, and someone will buzz you in.

Once you get off the elevator, you’ll notice that we’ve got a big open office with no traditional reception area. Just say hello to whoever you see, and tell them who you’re looking for. Then, have a seat on the red couches!

What’s the hiring process like?

Since our culture is so important to us, we always strive to make sure that employees are a good fit with both their skills and their personality.

If we like you on paper, we’ll have an initial phone interview followed by 2-3 in-person interviews with your supervisors, team members, and possibly even our partners.

Once we’ve gotten the go-ahead, we’ll call your references and bring you in. Some positions hire immediately, while others require a trial first. The length of the trial is decided by you, your supervisor and our HR manager.
