An Insider's view of Hinge

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Hinge understands that employees are able to bring our best selves to work when we’re able to make time for our personal lives. The motto here is “work hard, rest hard." When you’re at work, you show up rested and present. And when you’re on vacation, we want you to unplug and really take in your downtime.

Michelle

Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

In-person communication and collaboration have been central to keeping our team small and efficient, as well as being able to accommodate a massive scale in a short amount of time. Keeping everyone under one roof has led us to develop ideas through a reliable, data-oriented process. Best of all, feedback isn’t just appreciated; it’s encouraged!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As a direct result of Hinge's culture of empowerment and continuous learning, I was given the opportunity to transition from customer service associate to operations. I’ve learned volumes, and look forward to continuing to build out my knowledge base and skill set to achieve even more with Hinge.

Lucia

VP of Operations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Our team is built around individuals who add to our success, not just supplement what already works. Once we rally around an objective, they each have the freedom to take their own route through different learnings and opportunities.

Hala

Head of Member Services

What are some social events your company does?

We're about authentic connections, not just alcohol. Events have included a slumber party, an escape room, a party in which we had 12-15 puppies, competitive field days, and more. We plan an event for each new hire that showcases their unique personality.
