Tinder VP Of Product Ankur Jain Is Leaving The Company

Tinder’s VP of Product Ankur Jain is leaving the Hollywood dating app.

Jain joined the company when Tinder acquired Humin, the startup he co-founded with David Wyler in 2012.

Humin ran two main products – Humin Contacts, which lets you hold all your contacts in one app, and Knock Knock, an “easy way to connect, chat and swap contact information with people around you.”

The move saw Tinder acquire Humin’s technology and IP, as well as the majority of its leadership and members of the team.

The deal apparently came together after Tinder co-founder Sean Rad met the Humin founders at Web Summit in Dublin in November 2015.

And Jain, who worked alongside co-head of product and head of revenue Brian Norgard, is now said to be leaving the company on 2nd June, according to Business Insider.

The report says that after leaving Tinder, Jain is expected to work on his seed-stage venture fund Kairos Society Ventures, which he is the chairman of.
