We’re in the business of building connections

Connecting people through technology requires a ton of skill in, well, technology. That’s why engineers make up the majority of our team and play a huge role in making our product—and company—run.

App Observability

The challenge

You can’t improve what you don’t measure. How can we gather great data about our app experience in the wild to keep creating the best possible experience for members?

Our approach

We started with the basics: instrumenting our application end to end and integrating with data from crashes, out of memory exceptions, and “app not responding” events. Then we worked together to add the data to our central dashboards so company leaders would have easy, immediate visibility. Our Data Science team used the data to glean valuable insights and help prioritize our efforts for the greatest member impact. Our Product team explored data through our experimentation and KPI platforms in order to offer insights, and every single engineer had eyes on what we discovered.

The outcome

With increased visibility, we were able to identify and address over 70% of app terminations, creating a smoother, more stable experience for our members.

Explore

The challenge

How can we expand our members’ experience on Tinder beyond just swiping?

Our approach

We created a brand-new space within the app, called Explore, to house a multitude of different experiences. To achieve this, we built an extensible catalog service which allows activities, games, and curated card stacks to be dynamically assigned to users based on their individual preferences and interests.

The outcome

Explore provides new and entertaining shared experiences beyond our classic “match and chat” model, so our members can meet, interact, and form genuine connections with new people—both asynchronously and in real time.

Swipe Night: Killer Weekend

The challenge

How can we build a new interactive narrative that can be enjoyed live within the app by members around the world?

Our approach

Building on the successes of our existing interactive experiences, we layered in a whodunnit series that gave viewers new ways to interact with a story as it unfolds. We enhanced the API of our existing experiences, allowing us to dynamically send streaming content that automatically responds to user actions. We also added a new custom video service, which places our users’ profile pictures directly in streaming video.

The outcome

Launched at the end of 2021, members can work to solve the mysteries of Swipe Night: Killer Weekend, and connect with others to discuss their choices, giving them a fun icebreaker for their matches.

A collaborative culture

At Tinder we help each other get unstuck. The better we work together, the better the results—so teamwork isn’t just something we talk about. We appreciate and recognize each other’s contributions verbally, as well as officially and in real time through our employee recognition platform.

Cross-functional pods for the win

We operate in pods, which are cross-functional teams that solve problems together. It’s interesting, it’s effective, and it means you’ll never feel like a cog in the machine.

Hackathons on the regular

We want you to think outside the product roadmap and flex your creativity. Our company-wide hackathons happen a few times a year, giving team members from all roles and backgrounds a chance to dream up the next cool feature for our members.
