The Hinge Culture
*Candid: You are the first person to come to someone directly with an issue, or a compliment. The team can trust you to always be honest, even when it’s not the easy thing to do. You make all of us stronger by sharing your unique perspective and caring enough to make your feedback known.
*Open: You are open to change, feedback, and help - in fact you seek all of these things out. When someone challenges your ideas, you are able use their feedback as fuel to attack the problem from a different direction, and as an opportunity to challenge your own assumptions.
*Empowered: “The authority or power to do something.” See something, say something, change it. You are empowered to not only speak candidly about what you want to change, but you are actually the person who acts to change it. Be a co-creator and innovator, not a commentator.
*Rigorous: You approach your work with hustle and a critical eye. You’re smart. You can cut through a lot of data and noise to arrive at the right answer. You’re not afraid to explore a direction that may be wrong, because you know it will ultimately lead to further insights.
*Positive: You’re a problem solver who believes there’s a solution. Even when you cannot see the outcome, you encourage others with your energy and attitude to continue without roadblocks or fear of failure.
Hinge is where relationships start. We’ll help you meet someone the old-fashioned way: through your friends. Hinge cuts the clutter, the creeps and the games.
