Product Director at Tinder | Powderkeg

Location: Paris, France

Employment Type: Regular

Team: Product

Hawaya ’s mission is to help Muslim singles seeking a modern way to meet their true life partner. We’re committed to spark meaningful connections based on mutual respect between men and women who want to start a love journey which can blossom into a genuine relationship.

Hawaya was born in 2017 of a simple idea: that today’s Muslims are comfortable using the digital world to solve their problems, but the world of Muslim love and marriage is still very old-fashioned. Modern progressive Muslim women want to be able to find a life partner for themselves, but the typical online dating journey was not compatible with their values.

Since 2019, Hawaya is part of the Match Group, the global leader in dating and matchmaking services, and benefits from the group's technological and marketing expertise of other brands like Tinder, Meetic or Hinge which help us to make even better, while respecting our beliefs, values and culture.

We are always on the lookout for talented people to join and have a positive and lifelong impact on people’s lives but today we are specifically looking for a Product Director to sit directly under our General Manager and lead the product team (Product Managers, Product Designer and Data Scientist)

This is a highly collaborative, central and impactful role where you will be working with different experts to lead Hawaya’s success in becoming a global leader of transforming the way Muslims find their soulmate.
