Take a look into the people, the culture, and the real Life at Match!
In April of 2015, Match turns 20 years old as one of less than a handful of tech companies born in 1995 that still leads its category. And in our category, no business comes anywhere close to us, either in customer experience, reach, or business performance. Over 50 million members use our products every month and our customers go on tens of thousands of dates every single day. Our reach and impact are staggering. We believe that no business brings more happiness to more people than ours; we can never forget the impact we have on society.
Since 2008, Match has doubled in size from essentially one brand operating in one market, to over a dozen market-leading brands with users in every country in the world. Our growth has been fueled by mega-successful acquisitions like OKCupid along with a commitment to internal innovation and investment in product development that culminated in the launch of the app phenomenon that has transformed social discovery: Tinder. Match has developed market-leading innovations in essentially every major function: business model, analytics, marketing, mobile, UX, events, and the list goes on. This list of accomplishments proves that Match has assembled the most talented & passionate team around, one that we want you to join!
Match is an operating business of IAC/InterActiveCorp (Nasdaq:IACI). In 2014, IAC was ranked number 6 by Fortune as one of the world’s most admired companies in Internet Services and Retailing. Match is headquartered in Dallas with offices in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. Match is also home to Chemistry, People Media, OkCupid and Tinder! We pride ourselves on creating a culture of innovation full of talented people all with the goal of making love happen.
Get excited by discussions about high-performance design and coding, session state management, error logging or scalability? Want to get hands-on experience with the cutting-edge Internet technologies we use to create and maintain world-class Web sites for Match? If so, you might fit right in on one of our technical teams. We look for the best technical talent on the planet in a variety of disciplines, including Application Development, User Interface Development, QA and Configuration Management, IT Operations/Networking, and Systems/Database Administration. We’ve structured our teams to maximize speed and flexibility. The environment is extremely flexible and casual. We believe in a culture of doing; we’d rather prototype, test and iterate than theorize, debate and document. We use a variety of technical tools to turn business vision into physical reality including C#/.NET, ASP.NET, AJAX, Flash, SQL Server, IIS, TFS, and Quick Test Pro.
Mobile & Applications
The mobile team works on anything and everything. ipads, tablets, iphones, android and more. If it’s a new device, we know about it. In fact, we’re always on the market, testing out the newest and greatest mobile devices that haven’t even hit the market yet! And if that isn’t enough, if there isn’t an app, we are the ones creating the stuff that runs on mobile web! We are all about mobile, all the time.
Here are some of the qualities that define the mobile group:
- Brilliant developers who are addicted to mobile technology
- We have passion to design, build and polish great, simple, fun mobile applications
- We’re driven to succeed & are self-motivated
- We put 100% effort into everything we do
Quality Assurance teams are the innovative and agile within Match. We prevent mistakes. We avoid problems. In essence, we’re the ones who are making sure that before our customers see it, we’ve tried it, used it, monitored it and done it! We’re all about high quality…all the time! Every day our QA Engineers are talking to the development teams, product teams, management and everyone else involved in the products that our customers use on a regular basis to find love!
Business Support Team
“Variety is the spice of life” – on the Business Support Team (or BeST) this is more than a trite catch phrase – it is reality. Some jobs have you performing the same task but in slightly different ways every day. On the BeST team you will never be bored (see Bret if you are, please) because we write Windows services, web applications (with MVC and webforms), console applications, API integrations with third parties, and even some Windows desktop apps.
Our team develops, manages and supports the tools that other teams in the company use to do their job. The Call centers and customer care agents can’t function without the Customer Service Application. The Events team could not coordinate their activities without the Event Management Tool. Need a new promo? We have an application for that. Need a tool to peruse creative files for your clients? We have a tool for that. Need a daily report downloaded and consumed from a third party system? We’re the team that can make that happen.
We also troubleshoot situations for the teams we support, providing assistance beyond the simple release. When issues arise, we’re first in line to assist with investigation and coordinating a solution. We’re the problem solvers. We’re the ones you want on your side: we respond.
It takes special people to join our team. We are looking for people who are interested in constantly expanding their knowledge base, learning every day, and helping others. If that sounds like the kind of work you want to do, then we’re your team.
Savings & Retirement
Our company sponsored 401(k) plan helps you save for retirement on a pre-tax or Roth basis. Employees are always eligible to participate in our 401(k) plan and we will invest in your future with employer matching contributions.
We offer a choice of medical options to fit your individual needs and situations. We offer three medical plans nationally and HMOs in select locations. Options for dental, vision, and flexible spending accounts round out the coverage choices to keep you happy and healthy.
We provide life insurance equal to 1.5 times your annual salary, up to $500,000, at no cost to you. Coverage is also available for your spouse, domestic partner, and/or your children. We also offer short and long term disability plans that replace up to 60% of your lost income at no cost to you in case of accident or injury.
Paid Time Off
Company paid Maternity and Paternity Leave
- Maternity leave is 12 weeks paid @ 100% salary
(If you work in a state with additional time off , we have you covered!)
- Paternity leave is 2 weeks paid @ 100% salary
We have 10 holidays every year + one floating holiday to use whenever!
No Policy on Dress Code
We have no formal dress code policy here at Match. Take your cues from your fellow co-workers and manager, but if you’re more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, go for it.
Commuter and Parking Subsidy
However you commute into work, we can take the sting out of it with a subsidy and ways to purchase your mass transit or parking passes pre-tax.
Need a break? We have multiple game stations throughout the building including Ping Pong, Rock Band, Wii, Pool, Foosball and the occasional Nerf Dart War.
Employees enjoy discounted monthly dues and no enrollment fees for select fitness facilities. We also provide free weekly yoga classes in the building!
We love treats, which is why we partner with local businesses and online retailers to give employees discounts on loads of merchandise, amenities and day-to-day services you use the most. We are constantly adding to our treats which include local restaurants, on-site dry cleaning, computers, mobile phones and gift items.
Tuition Reimbursement Program
Every employee is eligible for up to $5,000 worth of tuition reimbursement per year. You’re investing your time with us, and we’re proud to return the favor.
Employee Referral Program
Refer a qualified candidate to us. If your referral is hired, the company will pay you a bonus for their hire! Not a bad deal for just a little contact list perusing.
Fresh fruit, cereal bar, healthy snacks dispensers, yogurt, drinks, tea and coffee (brewed by-the-cup) are always available to employees. Every Friday is bagel Friday!
We like to celebrate: product launches, summertime, or just a plain old Thursday…we constantly find reasons to get together and have fun. From happy hours and summer soirees to our annual holiday party.

I have been working at Match full-time
Highly competitive compensation, great vacation policies, amazing perks like weekly massages, free food, catered lunches, extremely talented colleagues, and room to grow professionally.
Even though we own the dating market, the bar for our growth (technology and revenue) is always growing and can present a challenge to reach.
Advice to Management
Management does a great job leading the employees and is always timely with performance feedback and encourages thinking outside of the box and give us ample time to take care of our lives outside of work. I've been an employee for a couple of years and honestly have no negative feedback at all.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Match (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.
Applied online, after a very short phone call I was given an Excel assessment to test basic problem solving, which was followed by a phone screen and finally an on-site interview. On-site interview was long for an entry-level position and felt somewhat repetitive. Spoke with 7 employees for a half-hour each, each interview was approximately half/half them asking me questions and me asking them questions. Mostly focused on my fit with the company and my past experience, I was surprised by the lack of technical questions during the on-site, and the problems they asked were generally pretty straightforward until I prodded for harder ones.
