Job Description

Tinder is a fun way to meet new people. Tinder finds out who likes you nearby, and connects you with them if you're also interested. We're a small team that's growing fast and we're looking for Senior Software Engineers. The projects on our plate are amazing, and we're looking for talented people to meet the exciting technical challenges we face. If you're an intelligent and highly ambitious engineer, we want to talk to you!

Also, just FYI, this position is located in Los Angeles, CA or San Francisco, CA - if you aren't local, don't fret! We'll move you here :)

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will:

Develop exciting new Tinder features
Help us scale to meet the ever growing Tinder user base and global audience
Exposure to TB of data including billions of swipes per day

Experience with a global audience, large scale system
Experience with Hadoop, Spark, or other big data tools
A BS or MS in Computer Science or Engineering from a top school, but a wonderful project list trumps all
Prior startup experience is fantastic (but not necessary); being scrappy will help you hit the ground running.
As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:
The hustle of a startup with the impact of a global business
Tremendous opportunity to solve some of the industry’s most exciting problems
Working with an extraordinary team of smart, creative, fun and highly motivated people
