About us

📲 What is Down?

Profitable US Startup with Taipei Headquarters

DOWN is a social app for honest dating and interesting conversations with over 8 million users. Users can choose whether they want to Date or Hookup (in American slang, "Get Down") with other users, so their intentions are clear. Plus, we are adding fun voice features and apps to expand in social beyond dating!

Be a part of the fast-growing, unabashedly honest startup behind the DOWN App! We have a Western/American management style, where you can learn a lot, share your ideas, and have a global impact!

Avoid corporate shackles and have a huge impact from the start!

If you would fit into a fun, quick-moving, yet chill work environment where you can be yourself, then talk to us about being on our team! 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. We dare say it's the most open and honest startup around.

Our team is lean and mean, so you'll learn from our founders frequently and have huge opportunities for impact. We are a startup where ownership matters, so you'll take the control of your area to make sure DOWN is as wonderful as our users want it to be!

🦾 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 15. 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!
