Who we are 👋
Dandy is the first dating app that’s been backed by the CTO of Tinder and is positioning itself to build the future of dating for Gen Z. We most recently closed a $2.5m seed round with First Round Capital as our lead investor, joined by powerhouse investors from Uber, Tinder, Lyft, Twitter, Snapchat, Houseparty, Airbnb, Netflix and more.
Why we exist 💡
Dandy’s mission is to create the world’s most engaging dating experience between two people. We’re driving that mission by building the first-ever live synchronous dating experience to solve the problem of immense time and effort required by existing apps.
Create massive impact 🚀
We're not solving a small problem, and we're not addressing a small market. At Dandy, you will have a massive impact on what millions will consider one of the most innovative and life-changing products to their dating life and overall well being.
Our Team 🥰
We have a small and contagiously high-energy team with strengths in product, design and iOS engineering. We’re looking for the last piece of the puzzle: a teammate with an unnatural backend engineering skillset who’s ready to get involved at the ground floor.
Who YOU are 👩💻👨💻
Excited to be the owner of backend as the sole backend engineer
4+ years of professional backend experience

We think this is a dream job for an extremely talented, mission-driven engineer who’s ready to make a huge impact at a seed-stage company—we couldn’t be more excited.
