Our Mission
As humans, there are few things more exciting than meeting someone new. At Tinder, we’re inspired by the challenge of keeping the magic of human connection alive. With tens of millions of users, hundreds of millions of downloads, 2+ billion swipes per day, 20+ million matches per day, and a presence in 190+ countries, our reach is expansive—and rapidly growing.
We work together to solve complex problems. Behind the simplicity of every match, we think deeply about human relationships, behavioral science, network economics, AI and ML, online and real-world safety, cultural nuances, loneliness, love, sex, and more.
Our Values
Member Safety: Our top priority is to build an authentic, equitable, and respectful community
Diversity: We strive to build a workplace that reflects the rich diversity of our members
Authenticity + Collaboration: We encourage authenticity to nurture a trustworthy, collaborative environment
Big Ideas: We champion and rally behind big ideas, empowering people to think and act differently and to be unafraid of having a strong point of view
Innovation: We never stand still; we’re inspired to build for what’s next, and we must constantly innovate, experiment, and learn
