Badoo Advertises for ‘Co-Founder of Live Streaming’

Badoo is advertising on LinkedIn for a role titled ‘Co-Founder of Live Streaming’. The vacancy comes around one year after the brand started promoting the Badoo Live interface.

Andrey Andreev’s company is headquartered in London, but the job offers a remote working option.

Few details about the future of the project are included, but the advertisement notes that the candidate will have access to a “captive audience” of 8,000,000 daily active users.

It reads: “We’re looking for an individual with experience content sourcing, live-streaming and launching a commercially successful product. Our aspiring Co-Founder must have experience building P&L from the ground up with entrepreneurial spirit.  

“You don’t have to be an operations or engineering technical expert – but we are looking for an individual that knows how to incentivise people to stream.

“(…) If you have experience live-streaming across platforms like Instagram, Facebook, YouNow, LiveMe, Tagged, Momo, AirTime, TikTok, Twitch, Sky Go, NOW TV and WeChat then we want to talk to you.”

The Meet Group, the publicly traded parent of Tagged, recently argued in favour of streaming-dating integration in a guest post for GDI.

VP of Livestreaming Lauren Hallanan made the case that video content can help to combat loneliness, something which should be a KPI for dating services.

In February, Badoo welcomed a new Chief Marketing Officer in Domininc Gallello. He joined from Airtime, a startup social app which lets friends watch videos and listen to music together.

HR Director Ann Roberts described the ideal Badoo hire in a March interview: “We look for quite a narrow and special breed of people because we need somebody who can create process and bring in scalable solutions to Badoo given how fast we’re growing.

“Also, though, somebody who has done small and nimble, who is agile, who can operate in not the most structured environment. The most important thing is people, especially for senior roles, who can still genuinely roll up their sleeves up and get things done.”
