    Hinge is the dating app designed to be deleted. In today’s digital world, singles are so focused on sending likes and looking through profiles that they’re not actually building meaningful connections and going on dates. Hinge is on a mission to change that by designing the most effective app experience. On Hinge, there are no rules, timers, or games. Instead, you’ll have unique conversations over the text, photos, and audio you’ve shared on your profile. And it’s resonating with daters. Hinge was the fastest-growing dating app in the US, UK, Canada and Australia in 2019 and 2020.

    Our Culture:
    - Authenticity: Share your genuine thoughts and opinions directly. 
    - Courage: Invite and deeply consider challenges and criticism.
    - Empathy: Be empathetic, communitarian and trustworthy.
