OkCupid is looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer for our Web team!

Whats it like to be a Web Engineer at OkCupid

The OkCupid Web Team is a nimble team of 5, building features that help connect millions of users every day. Because our team size is so small, each of us has full ownership of features from ideation to deployment. We work closely with other engineering and product teams across the company to figure out the best ways to help people find meaningful relationships.

As the sixth member of our team, you will help us build beautiful and performant user interfaces across desktop and mobile web, and will support and extend our API to power new features across all clients.

Some cool things the web team has done this year:

  • Implemented the next generation of OkCupids API, a Node-based GraphQL system utilizing the Apollo platform
  • Built out our CI/CD pip

About OK Cupid

OkCupid (sometimes abbreviated as OKC) is an American-based international operating free online dating, friendship, and social networking website that features member-created quizzes and multiple-choice questions. The site supports multiple modes of communication, including instant messages and emails. OkCupid was listed in Time magazines 2007 Top 10 dating websites. The website was acquired by IACs Match.com division in 2011. OkCupid was initially owned by Humor Rainbow, Inc. OkCupids founders (Chris Coyne, Christian Rudder, Sam Yagan, and Max Krohn) were students at Harvard University when they gained recognition for their creation of TheSpark and, later, SparkNotes. Among other things, TheSpark.com featured a number of humorous self-quizzes and personality tests, including the four-variable Myers-Briggs style Match Test. SparkMatch debuted as a beta experiment of allowing registered users who had taken the Match Test to search for and contact each other based on their Match Test types. The popularity of SparkMatch took off and it was launched as its own site, later renamed OkCupid. The current OkCupid Dating Persona Test is still largely identical, in question and text blurb content and order, to the original Match Test. In 2001, they sold SparkNotes to Barnes & Noble, and began work on OkCupid.
