Diversity inspires innovation.
We believe success is created by a diverse workforce of individuals with different ideas, strengths, interests, and cultural backgrounds.
Alignment Over Approval
We want to move quickly, collaborate seamlessly, and take risks. Approval culture hinders that. Alignment for us is a kind of shared brain, with multiple perspectives. It means our work is guided by principles and lets everyone own their projects and make the decisions that shape them.
Resource Group Events
We have six Employee Resource Groups—Asian, BIPOC, Disability, LGBTQIA+, WOC, and WNB—that hold biweekly meetings. Past ERG events have included panels, speaker series, networking mixers, happy hours, and retreats.
Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee helps create a greater sense of belonging. Programming includes a book club, movie nights, and a Leadership Sponsorship Series. We track our progress, so we’re always working to close gaps in feelings of inclusion at the company.
Our community exists within a very imperfect world. We must actively counter that by opening the circle. You’ll see this in action in our biweekly all-hands, where anyone at Hinge can both celebrate specific colleagues and speak up about tough topics.
Open Minds and Hearts
We lean into important conversations with open minds and open hearts. When we believe we see bias or insensitivity, we exercise radical candor. We admit our mistakes and share our learnings broadly.
Questions, Not Assumptions
We strive to be aware of the gaps in our knowledge and experience. We make few assumptions and ask many questions.
While we encourage sharing, no one person speaks or should be asked to speak on behalf of some aspect of their identity. When inquiring, we use standard research methods and work closely with the Employee Resource Groups.
No Hateful Speech or Actions
We have a zero-tolerance policy for hateful speech or action, especially when it relates to someone’s background, beliefs, disabilities, or identity. Any incidents are immediately reported to our Head of People.
We treat every member of our community equally, regardless of their background, beliefs, disabilities or identity when it comes to employment, compensation, and community membership.

A call to get to know each other.
As a first step, we want to have a quick chat to learn more about you, your career goals, and why you’re interested in Hinge and the role you applied for. Bring your questions—this should be a good fit for both of us!
The skills interview.
You’ll meet with members of the team you’d be working with at Hinge to discuss your experience in the key skills needed for the role. (We’ll make sure we’re on the same page about what they are before the interview.) It’s also a good time to get answers to all your nitty-gritty questions about the day-to-day work on this team.
The narrative interview.
Let’s talk past, present, and future. Come prepared with examples from previous roles that display a growth mindset. This isn’t a memorization exercise, so feel free to bring notes that help highlight prior projects.
The culture interview.
The culture interview is near and dear to our hearts, because it’s “how we work.” It’s crucial that you not only embody our values, but that you thrive at Hinge. You’ll talk to Hinge team members from all over the organization, who have been trained to conduct these interviews.
Making an offer.
Phew, we made it! We try to make the offer part of the process a positive one, so we’ll do our best to get it to you quickly. And we’ll be available to chat through it and answer questions. If we’re not making you an offer, we’ll let you know that too. No ghosting, we promise.
