TeamDating is redefining how people around the world experience online dating. We are a next generation social dating company helping individuals and their friends discover new people, places to go and things to do. Our approach is to build collective experiences that harness the power of groups to enable users to be more social, confident and safe while embarking on new experiences. Imagine the best aspects of Match, Meetup and Yelp, but with an offline play including a tv show, live events and local business partnerships through organic channels.
TeamDating has been featured in articles in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Investors Business Daily, in television segments on CBS, NBC, FOX and was even mentioned on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
TeamDating has a small but stellar team that consists of people from Yahoo!, Proctor & Gamble, Like.com, Universal Studios, Kiva, and Symantec. As one of our first 5 hires, you'll play a key role in shaping our strategy and culture. We're looking for people excited to tackle big challenges, constantly want to learn new things and are passionate about delighting end users. Whether you're interested in building cutting-edge features that push the boundaries of PHP or JS, scaling a website to serve tens of millions of users, or just try something new outside your comfort zone, we've got some great projects for you. We value talented, creative people who love to laugh, dream big and believe that passion is greater than priority.
