At Hinge, these three core beliefs set our company's direction. They drive everything we do, from the app interface to our marketing strategy.
While the Hinge team is comprised of some very unique characters, we all share a set of values that drive the way we work. These values have led to an office environment that's simultaneously fun and industrious; a true harmony of work and play. Here are some questions we all answer 'yes' to.
Do you think all the way through problems? Do you have reasons for doing things the way you do them? Do you fit your actions into a framework? Are you concerned not just with the problem at hand, but the process for solving it in the future?
“Everybody is sharp and good at what they do, and I trust them to do it way better than I could.”
Are you okay with being challenged? Can you admit when you are wrong? Are you aware of your weaknesses, and are you willing to work on them? Can you laugh at yourself?
“People aren't afraid to advocate for what they believe, and they're not afraid to admit when they're wrong or someone else has a better idea.”
Are you concerned with the overall business, rather than just your part? Do you step up and work overtime when needed? Do you challenge other people? Do you care about the company and the people in it?
“We’re all fully invested in Hinge’s future - not our own - and that means we’re all cooperating towards a common goal, not competing for raises or promotions or any of that.”
Can you handle bad news without being discouraged? Do you get excited about good news? Do you look for solutions rather than assign blame? Are you kind and compassionate? Are you reasonably optimistic about the future?
“You have to think Hinge is a good idea; that it’s something people want, and ultimately we can give it everything it needs to succeed.”
Are you loyal? Can people rely on you? Do you have a moral compass? Do you go out of your way for others?
“Everyone I work with cares about my well-being, respects me professionally, and would help me if I needed it. And I feel the same toward everyone else.”
We spend a lot of time in our office, so great work digs are essential. Located in Manhattan's Flat Iron District, Hinge HQ is a bright, open space floating five floors above the bustling sidewalks of 5th avenue. We play great music at work. We are always laughing. And we're a little bit aggressive about caffeine... we have more than a couple coffee options.
