Coffee Meets Bagel's mission is to create real connections that inspire personal growth. It is the dating app that treats people like people. Instead of asking you to swipe through infinite profiles, our smart algorithm curates only your best matches and sends them to you once daily. Our "slow dating" approach emphasizes savoring each real connection—and even finding delight in the journey. Globally, CMB has sparked thousands of lasting relationships. We were named one of the "Top 10 Dating Apps" by Time Magazine, and "Best App If You're Trying to Marie Kondo Your Dating Life" by Women's Health.

Coffee Meets Bagel is looking for a passionate, talented Product Designer to help design the future of dating. This person will bring a unique perspective on the biggest customer pain points within the world of dating and will be responsible for executing on all stages of the design process for both iOS and Android platforms: product thinking, flows, wireframes, user testing, prototypes, visual design, animation, and spec and asset production. Designers at CMB solve complex problems by identifying key issues and collaborating with cross-functional teams (product, marketing, engineering) to develop solutions which are achievable in a fast-paced start-up environment.
