About Affinitas:  

PASSION; it’s a word that´s often used though very few companies can claim to actually inspire it. But we do! Affinitas brands are on the ‘serious dating’ side of the spectrum of dating platforms (as opposed to the casual hookup). Elite Singles, eDarling, and Attractive World are our main brands aimed at professionals looking for love.

We were one of the earliest startups in Berlin from the ‘new wave’ of tech startups. In fact, we’re practically startup royalty – successful (and profitable) with fun plans for expansion.

So; do you want to shape how people find love? Are you interested in joining an ambitious and inclusive workplace? The tech teams are continually striving for the highest quality, and to release quickly. We work in small, focussed, cross functional teams using bits of Scrum, Kanban, and a smidge of Extreme Programming.

Our teams have Product Management, Devs, and UX all working together every day.
