    We’re growing fast, join us on our journey!

    We believe there is someone for everyone. We have become the largest social discovery network in the world because we have created the best tools to connect people. Our many years of experience have given us great insights and experience which has helped us solve major challenges in the social discovery space. This has enabled us to stay ahead of the curve and focus on innovation, pioneering many of today’s standard features, like location based matching.

    Our employees work hard and we believe it is important to provide an environment that supports their wellbeing and needs. Life at Badoo really is quite extraordinary.

    Our colleagues describe us as just as social as our products., We value hard work, embrace ownership, operate with autonomy and have created a collaborative environment that encourages personal growth whilst inspiring each other to innovate and create a better experience for our users.

    We have a quarterly training budget allocated for each team member, we actively encourage team members to attend at least 2 conferences per year which we pay for, it allows us to promote ideas publicly for peer review or listen to other people do the same. It’s also an opportunity for team members to witness first-hand the edge of innovation in their field, learning solutions from peers, expanding their networks and reviving their passion for the technologies they work with.
