Our Mission:

As humans, there are few things more exciting than meeting someone new. At Tinder, we’re on a mission to power and inspire real connections by making it easy and fun for every new generation of singles. With tens of millions of users, hundreds of millions of downloads, 2+ billion swipes per day, 20+ million matches per day, and a presence in 190+ countries, our reach is expansive—and rapidly growing. We work together to solve complex problems. Behind the simplicity of every match, we think deeply about human relationships, behavioral science, network economics, AI and ML, online and real-world safety, cultural nuances, loneliness, love, sex, and more.

Our Values:

We are intentional about building a workplace that reflects the rich diversity of our members. By leveraging different perspectives and other ways of thinking, we build better experiences for our members and our team.

The Role:

We’re seeking a dynamic and motivated VP of Ghost Hunting to spearhead Tinder’s new ghost-hunting strategy to address and reduce overall ghosting behavior. Qualified candidates will show proficiency in tracking, mitigating, and providing solutions to this phenomenon where dates leave unsuspecting situationships on read.

In this role you will:

  • Drive Tinder’s efforts in getting to the bottom of ALL unanswered texts.
  • Lead a team of internet sleuths who will be following up, locating, chasing down, and finding daters who don’t text back.
  • Help identify and categorize different ghosters in the wild (breadcrumbers, submariners, zombies etc).
  • Rapidly iterate and refine tactics to seek closure. 
  • Perform emoji analysis. 
  • Respond to queries. Example: Find out if work was really “that crazy” that they HAD to stop texting you back.  
  • Work five days a week, plus weekends, holidays, and we’ll be honest…nights. A lot of nights. 

What we're looking for:

  • Analytical abilities, problem-solving, obsession with the truth, and a tendency to go deep into socials for a bestie.
  • Proven track record of being ghosted in a previous relationship.
  • An enthusiastic, passionate advocate for positive dating experiences. 
  • Able to provide references (who will actually text back.)
  • Can detect the difference between genuine interest and breadcrumbing.
  • Ability to analyze data and read through an entire job description to realize this is an April Fools prank.

Salary Range:

-
$5
a year

Factors such as scope and responsibilities of the position, candidate's work experience, education/training, job-related skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and business considerations may influence base pay offered. This salary will be subject to a geographic adjustment (according to a specific city and state), if an authorization is granted to work outside of the location listed in this posting.
