Dashing Date is a well-established Canadian speed dating company, headquartered in Montreal, that is in its 8th year of business. We specialize in organizing high-quality, expertly curated dating experiences for single professionals who are serious about meeting someone.
ABOUT OUR TEAM:
Our team is driven, friendly and passionate about the dating space and helping people find love! We work hard, with integrity and a positive mindset. We challenge and question everything, including our own work and processes. We stay ahead of the curve and are always ready to embrace change!
Our team values open and honest communication and is always willing to hear each other out. We love cracking jokes and bringing joy to the workplace. We’ve designed our jobs so that we can all work remotely most of the time. Most importantly, we really are a team (even when we’re working separately), which means that we encourage and support each other and share the workload.
Dashing Date started at a speed dating company back in 2012 and within a couple of years, we were offering matchmaking services too! The matchmaking division grew very organically. Clients who were serious about meeting someone but couldn’t always make it out to our events started to request one-on-one set ups so, that’s just what we did! Our matchmaking services are now available in three cities, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.
NOW… ABOUT YOU and THE JOB…
We’re hiring a Chief Matchmaker
We’re excited to welcome a new team member who will lead our matchmaking department and be integral to its growth in 2020! The position as Chief Matchmaker is mostly remote (work from home) and is part time (25 hours per week). But, for the right individual who’s motivated to make a career out of this, full-time is an absolute possibility. Our new Chief Matchmaker will begin their journey with an existing client-base ready to be set up! Full training will be provided to bring you up to speed. We’re looking to hire immediately.
Something you should know is that most matchmaking jobs require having to go out and find the clients. What makes Dashing Date so great is that, because we’re a speed dating company, we have so many new clients entering our database every month! Our Chief Matchmaker will recruit clients directly from our existing database and set up clients by using that same database! This is extremely valuable from a work perspective, and a client perspective. OK now… keep reading!
