Feeld is an independent, experimental and fully remote organisation reshaping the dialogue on dating and sexuality. The company was founded 5 years ago and has evolved since to become the transparent, flat 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're self-managed and treat our organisation as a product – we iterate, improve and test things internally to see what works best for everyone. Some things we provide are:

  • flexible working hours
  • unlimited holidays
  • fully remote
  • annual retreats
  • equity options
  • expense account
  • training budget
  • computer and home office equipment
  • transparency - open data, open salaries, open equity
  • access to the Feeld Flat in Porto, Portugal
  • friendly humans

To find out more about us, you can download our app (available on iOS and Android) and check out the project Mal Journal we initiated and support.

Ahh let's just jump on call so you see it for yourself. This started to feel like one of those dating scammy dating profiles.

FYI: Feeld is committed to hiring the kindest, smartest and most passionate human regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. However we are limited to EU & UK applicants only due to remote limitations.
