    How Tinder, ZestFinance and SteelHouse maintain their company cultures

    Because entrepreneurs work long hours focusing on specific goals, the reality of hitting those initial milestones and solidifying a place in the market can feel a bit surreal. So too can the feeling of transitioning from a period of rapid growth to one of stability, but this is a critical period in a company's life.

    I have been working at Tinder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at Tinder for over 2 years now and it's been an amazing experience and an incredible journey! It's by far the best company I've ever worked at with great perks, smart people and continual growth opportunities

    - The people (collaborative, fun, motivated and people I enjoy coming to work with everyday)
    - The company genuinely tries to make Tinder a fun place to work and spends a lot of time and money on the employee experience
    - Amazing company holiday parties, events, happy hours and summer parties!
    - Catered meals for lunch and dinner and an insane spread of every snack you could think of
    - Wine/beer on tap
    -Unlimited PTO/ flexible working hours
    - Modern office that is decorated better than my own apartment
    - Still has fun perks/vibes of a startup, but is a more mature established company with resources
    - good compensation and strong upside on stock
    - good benefits/401k
    - opportunities to grow and take on new challenges for those who are hungry and eager for more responsibility

    Cons

    - Tinder doesn't have a set remote wfh policy. It's very up to manager discretion/some teams shy away from remote work, while others can work remote anytime. Would be nice if there was a more flex remote policy in place so everyone could take the same liberties

    Community Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Tinder (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing that they were hiring on multiple job boards in late July 2016. I also checked LinkedIn to see if I knew anyone who worked there. A former coworker happened to know the Head of Talent so I got in touch pretty easily.

    I then had a phone interview with a recruiter, and then spoke with the hiring manager a week or so later. I was supposed to speak with the CMO but she was super busy so I ended up with a 3rd phone interview with the Director of Brand Management. This 3rd call seemed more like a culture fit interview which was nice, I got along with everyone and they had really detailed questions about my past experience and why I wanted to work at Tinder.

    I was invited to an onsite interview in September 2016 where they flew me out (super nice of them to let me stay an extra day to explore LA). I was interviewed by two current Community team members, the Director of Community, and the CMO. Everyone was very nice, but I could tell that they took their work very seriously and could easily spot BS from a mile away. My recruiter, Devin, was super helpful and always checked in to make sure I was doing okay/needed water/etc. I had lunch with everyone after my interviews and met a few more people from marketing and engineering so I got to see a wider lens of the company.

    I got an offer about a week after my onsite and I started in October. My interview process was extremely positive
