Why DOWN

DOWN helps people strengthen relationships in the offline world through honest interactions.

Be a part of the fast-growing, unabashedly honest startup behind the viral DOWN App! Break free of your corporate shackles and have a huge impact from the start! If you would fit into a fun, quick-moving, yet chill workplace where sex jokes are a requirement, then talk to us about being on our team!

If you're unsure about applying, don't hesitate! We welcome applicants from all walks of life and are always looking to add even more of a feminine perspective to our team. At DOWN, we value honesty and people who are always trying to improve and learn new skills.

We ship code quickly and don't have time for candy coating. We dare say it's the most open and honest startup around. We have a kick ass loft workspace in the SOMA neighborhood in SF, where you'll enjoy healthy and frequent free company meals in between drinking games (Cards Against Humanity or Flip Cup, anyone?) and roof top happy hours fueled by free booze that's always handy. Our hack-a-thons are always fun and liberating - how many places could you build a feature that allows people to discover threesome opportunities? Plus, you can party with us and occasionally cooler people (perhaps celebs), and help us grow our team from the ground up.

Our team is lean and mean, so you'll work with the founders every day and have huge opportunities for impact. We are a startup where ownership matters, so you'll take the reigns on your areas and manage a team to make sure DOWN is as fucking wonderful as the world wants us to be!
