We are looking for a Sr. HR Manager to join our OK Cupid team. This is a full-time position, with excellent health benefits, matching 401K, and an opportunity to join the leader in the online dating industry who is continuing to grow aggressively as we help people world wide find meaningful relationships.

In April of 2019, Match Group turned 24 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 70 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 Group has doubled in size from essentially one brand operating in one market, to over a dozen market-leading brands with users in nearly every country in the world. Our growth has been fueled by mega-successful acquisitions like OKCupid, Plenty of Fish, Hinge, and several others. That growth has also come through 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 Group 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 Group has assembled one of the most talented & passionate teams around, one that we want you to join.

Position Summary:

The Sr. Human Resources Manager will play an active role in driving the sustainable growth of one of Match Group's most dynamic brands, which is experiencing rapid growth as they expand into non-US markets. OK Cupid has re-invigorated their long-standing brand as they grow both domestically and outside of the U.S. This role will be critical in helping the leadership team embrace the challenges ahead—attracting and retaining top talent, building out a pay-for-performance culture at scale, and helping accelerate new managers to inspire and lead teams at scale.

Reporting into VP of Human Resources of Match Group (with a dotted line to OK Cupid CEO), this role will be looked to as a true business partner who can bring outside/in thinking, a fresh perspective to the table, while complementing the existing values and culture that OK Cupid has been based upon.

An Insider's view of OkCupid

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe at OkCupid is better than anywhere I have ever worked. By far. If I had to describe it in a few words, I would say it is: challenging, collaborative, exciting, flexible, innovative, motivating and supportive.

Michael Kay

Global Communications Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The technical debt associated with legacy infrastructure and software can be difficult to overcome and is often ignored. The backend team is excited to be working on modernizing our whole backend infrastructure from the ground up! This provides significant learning opportunities to become familiar with bleeding edge technologies.

Taylor Dean

Senior Software Engineer - Backend

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

OkCupid puts data at the heart of every product decision we make. Whether we're designing experiments, uncovering patterns in dating behavior, or designing algorithms to help people find love, we directly impact the future of the company. Novel insights are shared across the company and can drive product decisions of all sizes.

Nick Aldershof

Manager, Analytics

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a member of the marketing team, I work with all the value streams in varying capacities daily. And a great thing about OkCupid is there's a lot of transparency - every week team updates are sent out, and every other week we hold demos so each person can have a better understanding of what their colleagues are focused on.

Jane Reynolds

Associate Director, Product Marketing
