Tinder Opens New Office in Central San Francisco

Business Insider has been given an exclusive tour of Tinder’s new San Francisco office.

The space inside the Rialto building was officially opened at the beginning of the month and is currently home to 30 employees, with an additional 25 vacancies being advertised for.

According to the dating app’s lead technical recruiter Peddy Farjad, it was a “strategic move” to be closer to the growing technology talent in the heart of the city. Before, workers would have to undergo the considerable commute to to Tinder’s main Palo Alto office.

Employee wellbeing was a main concern for the designers, who included a room dedicated to massages and yoga sessions. The office also features a treadmill hot desk to give people an alternative to sitting down all day.

Additionally, employees are treated to freshly cooked breakfasts and dinners from local restaurants, and a fully-stocked fridge of soft drinks and alcohol.

The office is focused on product and engineering, and Business Insider expects it will be the birthplace of new user experiences, similar to the interactive show Swipe Night which aired inside the app throughout October.

Tinder was named as one of the best places to work in Los Angeles last week. The publication celebrated its multiple employee perks and “constant drive toward excellence”.
