Tagged – Why Work For Us?


Careers at Tagged.

Tagged makes social discovery products that enable anyone to meet and socialize with new people. We facilitate over 100 million new social connections every month.


Anyone. Anywhere. Anytime.

We are working toward a vision where anyone can use a device to instantly connect with interesting people anytime, anywhere. Meet a friend. Make a business contact. Play a game. Find a date. It’s not social networking – it’s social discovery.


Work that changes lives.

With over 330 million registered members in 196 countries, we serve a massive global audience. Our products are changing how people interact. Every team member can make an awesome impact.


Picture yourself here.

Founded in 2004 and profitable since 2008, Tagged is an established start-up. We work with a sense of purpose instead of obligation. We’re passionate about our users and focused on innovating and creating only the best experiences for them, every single day.


We love our city.

San Francisco is a flourishing hub for technology and culture. Our local community is made up of some of the brightest minds around the world. We’re located on the Embarcadero, volunteer all over the Bay Area, and come up with our most brilliant ideas at our local pub next door.


Body and Mind.

We demand excellence from ourselves. We also encourage each other to maintain balance and enjoy the journey. Tagged offers on-site yoga and massage therapy, and access to a premiere gym around the corner from Tagged HQ.


Mmmmmm, food!

Food is an integral part of our culture. We have lunch and dinners catered in daily and keep a fully stocked kitchen for the hours in between. To keep our food culture thriving and evolving, Tagged team members submit "foodback" (food feedback) regarding all things food that's published in a weekly Team newsletter.


Work-Life Balance.

We believe it's important to celebrate our team's accomplishments. Weekly happy hours following our all-hands meetings, and team-building events held at some of San Francisco`s hottest spots.


Work Smart.

Tagged operates in small teams, which allows us to act decisively and move quickly. Politics have no place here. Honesty, transparency and trust flourish. We are data-driven, but common sense guides us.

    Good culture masks structural rot

    I worked at Tagged


    The company has a lot of great, motivated, and smart people working for them. The perks and culture are unparalleled, and you will have an enjoyable day at work.


    The culture is a shell-game designed to mask a lot of structural management issues. Company shifts direction half-heartedly with extreme frequency. Management cannot seem to stick with a decision once it has been made.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Tagged in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a HR for background check, phone interview with the same HR person, phone interview with the Engineering manager, coding two exercises given before the on-site interview, the on-site interview which took about 4 hours with 5 engineers. It was very professional and "no-bullshit" from end to end. All the parties participating were well prepared. Not easy though.

    Interview Questions
    • The one that I haven't had good explanation was about "Lockless resource sharing among different threads"?   Answer Question
