Say Allo, the Denver-based “relationship discovery” app, has made 15 new hires this month as it looks to expand its product.
The online dating industry is one of the few sectors that is seeing increased usage rates during the coronavirus pandemic and platforms are coming up with new ways for their members to interact.
The startup Say Allo has expanded its workforce by filling positions in the areas of iOS/Android development, marketing, social media, SEO and public relations.
Founder CEO Zackary Lewis said in a statement: “Since launching in 2018, our goal has always been to provide a smarter, safer and innovative dating discovery experience for singles. In-app video communication was a key feature of our original offering, and I believe this set us apart with the onset of Covid-19.
“Unlike other dating apps, Say Allo users were able to take their connections to the next level without needing to ‘escape’ and potentially risk their personal information, health and the health of others to grow their connections.”
As many platforms across the industry quickly introduced live video features to keep their users connected, video calls had always been a key part of the Say Allo product since its inception.
The company is now planning to invest heavily over the next few months to develop the video product to ensure it keeps up with the growing industry trend. It will look to increase interactivity by releasing new gaming elements and community building group events.
Lewis continued: “With the end of lockdown on the horizon, these new hires further underscore our commitment and ability to provide our users with meaningful, safe and real connections through the roll out of new features.”
