  • Identify new opportunities and forge partnerships with other teams across Tinder by understanding their metrics and building products to change the way they work
  • Define new roles on the team, and lead the hiring efforts as we scale the team-up.
  • Communicate roadmaps, priorities, experiments, and decisions across a wide spectrum of audiences from partner teams to executive levels.

What You Will Need:

  • 8+ years of product management in a high growth consumer tech company
  • University degree, ideally with technical or business background or a mix of education and experience
  • Experience leading Product Teams for consumer mobile apps and social networking businesses
  • A deep understanding of the ML space, both from an academic perspective as well as real-world implementations.
  • A demonstrable history of successful data-heavy consumer product launches with an exceptional focus on the user's needs and desires.
  • Experience defining metrics and making product and strategic decisions based on A/B testing and/or qualitative feedback.

As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:
· The hustle of a startup with the impact of a global business
· Tremendous opportunity to seek some of the industry’s most exciting problems
·  Working with an outstanding team of creative, fun and highly motivated people
· Comprehensive health coverage, competitive salary, and 401(k) match
· Daily catered lunches, an endless supply of refreshments, basketball court, fitness classes, and social events
· A modern, uplifting work environment in an ideal location
