Tinder + Tech Event Recap: Scaling Up with Tech Ladies LA

Last month, Tinder teamed up with Tech Ladies to present Scaling Up, a night of conversation centered on how the women of Tinder have scaled our platform and what it's like to be a woman working in tech.

Our very own CTO Maria Zhang served as MC, while Jessica Hickey (Backend Platform Engineer), Alex Salvatore (iOS Engineer), Kate Yortsos (Lead Data Engineer) and Sam Stevens (Director of Growth Products) presented some key learnings from their time at Tinder: from the advantages of adopting Swift, to the steps we take to minimize outages, to the importance of relating to and building for a global user base with different levels of access to technology.

More than 60 attendees ended the evening bonding over champagne and cupcakes. And, as an added bonus, we offered complimentary headshots so attendees could spruce up their LinkedIn (or Tinder) profiles.

We are proud to work alongside Tech Ladies, a community of 20,000 women in tech whose mission is to connect women with the best jobs and opportunities in tech, and hope to see you at our next event.
