About Jaumo GmbH

Jaumo is one of the fastest growing dating apps worldwide with more than 30 million membersin over 180 countries. The app for Android and iOS is available in 59 languages and among the Top #5 dating apps in many countries. Our mission: We connect people. For fun. For love. For life.

The company behind Jaumo is independent, bootstrapped and was founded 2011. We’re still lean and laser-focused. We’re not a start-up anymore, and we have proven that we built a sustainable business in a fast-growing, competitive and profitable sector.

We’re remote. Enjoy your freedom. Have a better work-life balance.

We don’t offer you free food, Karaoke Fridays, a fancy table soccer room or a state-of-the-art in-house gym (to get rid of all the free food again). We offer you something different: freedom. Because we are a 100% remote company, you can work from wherever you want. Do you hate spending two hours every day commuting to the office on crowded trains? Forget that. Spend your time with your family and friends instead. Or spend more time on your hobbies.

You think the rental prices are crazy these days? Right! So why live in those expensive places like San Francisco, London or Munich? There are other nice places around the world. Less noise. Less expensive. We offer you a better work-life balance and don’t care about different time zones. We’re a lean but global team with awesome people working from Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Hong Kong, Spain, Sweden and Great Britain.

The perks:

  • 100% remote and flexible (work from anywhere within a timezone you choose)
  • 30 paid personal vacation days per year
  • only the best hardware and software (use what works best for you)
  • personal home office budget (2,000 € to buy what you need every 2 years)
  • make a difference (we’re laser-focused and lean)


  • 100% remote company
  • Lean company – no bullshit
  • Flexible schedules
  • Cutting-edge technology
  • Only best hard-/software
  • Competitive salary
  • Make a difference
