WHAT DOES THIS JOB INVOLVE?
Our client is a dynamic startup company with a strong vision to change the way the dating industry works. Driven by the strong belief that existing providers don’t respect their customers, but also the lack of effectiveness in current dating solutions, it offers a streamlined service that takes the user to a date with someone new without hassle and hidden risks.
The team of four full-timers is operating in a truly lean style, by employing modern-day tools and techniques to boost our performance. Expect to work in an environment that takes advantage of physical and virtual work processes combined. After being funded by 123 investors through Seedrs.com they are now looking to grow the team with an aspiring individual who will undertake the challenging task of building & maintaining our backend systems.
