Our mission

We’re a mission-driven company, only at the beginning of helping readers find books they love, read more, and share ideas.

As an Amazon company, we utilize cutting-edge technology and technical expertise. We are deeply integrated with Kindle and have exciting opportunities to invent the future of reading in partnership with Kindle, Audible, Alexa, and more.

Our culture

Our headquarters are located in San Francisco. When we’re not working, we’re looking to expand our horizons in other ways, including visits by bestselling authors, hackathons, team-led tech talks, game nights, and volunteering at local charities. And, of course, we love books and have free books and internal book clubs.

Goodreads is a subsidiary of Amazon (see benefits here). Many of our employees get opportunities to travel to Amazon’s main campus in Seattle for training, conferences, and working with our partner teams.
