We are all software craftsmen at heart and engineering excellence is at the focal point of everything we do at Grindr.
We are an agile shop and we use pair programming together with behavior-driven development (BDD) principles to build amazing things. No line of code is ever written by just one developer and we have over 90% of test code coverage.
Our users today have a choice of iOS and Android native clients powered by Grindr 3.0 back-end utilizing non-blocking I/O Akka and Scala framework. We build our business components using Java programming language and we use Zookeper to configure AWS Elastic Beanstalk clusters running Grindr.
Our infrastructure depends on heavy usage of advanced cloud computing and caching techniques to scale massively around the world. We support over 1MM active hourly users pushing 10K API calls per second sending over 135MM chat messages per day. We use Redis, Elastisearch, AMQP RabbitMQ, Amazon RDS and DynamoDB, as well as, Erlang based MongooseIM to power our apps.

- Headline:The world’s biggest mobile network of guys: Find gay, bi, curious guys for free near you with Grindr on the iPhone, Android and BlackBerry
- Key DifferentiatorGrindr, which first launched in 2009, has exploded into the largest and most popular all-male location-based social network out there. With more than 5 million guys in 192 countries around the world -- and approximately 10,000 more new users downloading the app every day -- you’ll always find a new date, buddy, or friend on Grindr.Grindr is a simple app that uses your mobile device’s location-based services to show you the guys closest to you who are also on Grindr. How much of your info they see is entirely your call.0 feet away: Our mission for youGrindr’s different because it’s uncomplicated and meant to help you meet guys while you’re on the go. It’s not your average dating site -- you know, the ones that make you sit in front of a faraway computer filling out complex, detailed profiles and answering invasive psychological questions. We'd rather you were zero feet away.With Grindr, "0 Feet Away" isn't just a cute slogan we print on our T-shirts. It's a state of mind, a way of life -- a new kind of dating experience. Turning Grindr off and being there in-person with that guy you were chatting with is the final goal of using the app. Being 0 feet away is our mission for you.To get started with Grindr, simply grab your mobile device and download and open the app. Then, give yourself a profile name (if you want), upload a photo (also optional, but we encourage it), and answer a couple of questions about yourself (your choice, too). Then, get out there and start chatting, trading photos, and meeting up with the many men in your area -- wherever you may be!Whether you’re traveling, new in town, or just hanging out at home, Grindr’s the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to connect with the biggest network of nearby guys. And it’s available on not just the iPhone but also the iPad, iPod touch, and Android.
