Who are they?

Happn is a French dating application with a unique concept of real-time geolocation.

Because everything starts in real life, the application allows its users to find people they have actually met and with whom they may already share part of their daily life.

Happn acts as a dating facilitator, at a time when the pace of life and new social habits ultimately make it difficult to approach strangers and meet people.

Launched in 2014, the app now has over 100 million downloads worldwide. The company has over 100 employees and operates from Paris in over 15 countries.

The user experience is our raison d’être and we place technology, innovation and data at the heart of our business.

Join us to help shape the dating experience of tomorrow !
