What do we do?

Her helps lesbian, bisexual and queer women meet each other. We exist for the 400 million LGBTQ women, who prior to Her, had been completely ignored. We think it's time to think it's time women get to enjoy the same opportunities gay men and straight people have had for years.

Why join us?

1. Join a small team with a chance to come in early and shape the company at a key stage (hiring, architecture, scaling)
2. Create something for a huge audience, that has been given few chances to have equal opportunities.
3. Team that's focussed on getting shit done and moving incredibly fast

Technical challenges

1. Scaling a rapidly growing userbase as we launch in new countries
2. Using GoLang
