About Us

Feeld is an independent, experimental and fully remote organisation reshaping the dialogue on dating and sexuality. The company was founded 6 years ago and has evolved since to become the open, distributed structure it is now. We don’t believe in standard management, so we have a naturally agile and fluid culture. The whole team is fully remote, which means you work where and when helps you perform at your best. We regard autonomy highly and treat our organisation as a product – we iterate, improve and test things internally to see what works best for everyone.

What is your Interview process like?

There will be a screening call, an assessment, followed by a team interview, and then a final interview.

The assessment will test coding skills, we either share the case study or ask them to do the live coding

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

We have committed to continuously learn, reflect and take action on racial inequality, hatred and abuses of all kinds. This includes consistently creating space for these urgent conversations within our company, upholding marginalised voices on all our platforms, and facilitating a truly inclusive and safe space on our app.
