At DOWN, we value honesty and people who are always trying to improve / learn new skills. We ship code quickly and operate in a fun growth culture.

🦾 The past and future of the team

Founded in 2013 by The Global Growth Expert, Colin Hodge, Down was acquired by Paktor in 2016 after reaching over 5 million users organically, merged companies with 17Live in 2017, and then reacquired by the founders in 2018.

We now treat Taipei as our headquarters, growing from a team of 2 into 10. Team members often get exposure to multiple aspects of running successful, profitable social apps, while growing their ownership skills for one main area.

We're focused on growing the team with better and better talent, especially smart and eager-to-learn people!

💡 What kind of talent fits best at Down?

At DOWN, we value honesty and people who are always trying to improve / learn new skills.

Unlike many traditional Taiwan work cultures, we encourage independent thinking, curiosity, and taking risks through experimentation. You'll fit in well if you:

❶ Have a "growth mindset" and try to keep growing

Our best team members are hungry to learn, want to grow in their careers and lives, accept and give thoughtful feedback, and take on new challenges or risks.

❷ Are responsible and reliable

Our team members should be communicative, thorough, and show strong ownership of their areas, working hard to set a high standard for their professional expertise.

❸ Are curious about social dynamics and apps

We are driven by providing valuable connections to people worldwide, whether for short-term & casual dating, long-term & serious dating, new friends, language partners, or plenty of other use cases. If you're interested in how to innovate on social discovery apps, you'll be a great addition!
