Join us in creating the most fun dating app in the world 🫶

We believe work should be fun, and you should feel excited to get to work on Mondays. Our attitude towards work is why we got elected Iceland’s second Greatest Place to Work in 2023.

If you are the kind of person who can’t help but make everyday things more fun, more competitive, or more enjoyable, we may be looking for you.

Smitten is pioneering a new era in how single people lead their lives. Smitten is on a mission to create a happier world, bringing single people together with a fun and creative approach to online dating.

While talent is a close second, we hire for cultural fit first. We believe the key to success is how we communicate with each other, internally and externally. Communication is an enormous part of our company culture and the product. While you don’t have to be a people-skills expert when you join Smitten, you will grow to become exceptional at giving and receiving feedback, taking responsibility, feeling empathy, etc.

You may be a team fit if you:

  • Have a deep, almost bizarre, passion for your work
  • Are confident in your skillset
  • Are humble enough to know you still have a lot to learn
  • Want to become better in people skills
  • Have an extraordinary high standard to do a good job
  • Have an entrepreneurial mindset
  • Believe life and work should be an incredible, fun experience
  • Below are a bunch of things about how you will personally impact the product and, consequently, the lives of (one day) hundreds of millions of people. Before you check that out, does your gut feeling tell you that you want to work with us? If yes, keep reading; if not, that’s alright; we are not everyone’s type.
