Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area - and have fun doing it. The scope would be global, but adapted to local needs. It worked.
Badoo now has the majority of its operations in London. It is currently available in 46 languages via Badoo.com and various social/mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Facebook & Desktop application.

Bad maitainance , not so sufficent locations, unstable propositions.
Advice to Management
I will adivce that they should have more locations and a better propositions.
The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Badoo (New Delhi (India)).
The company contacted me. The first round involved 2 interviews with 2 PMs.
Second round involved assignment
Third round involved interview with Product Lead.
The interview process is quite structured. But they expect you to know everything that they do i.e. you should have worked in Badoo to get a job in Badoo which kinda becomes a catch 22.
The concept of learning about the domain on the job is not something that they are fine with.
The selection process is more abt finding how a candidate is not suitable for the role instead of seeing how the candidates suits the role and if he/she can learn the missing things on the job
