FORBES - July 4 - Launched in late 2014, by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe Herd, Bumble entered the market as an app to change the way people date online by putting women first. Today, the app has recorded 500M "first moves" and is valued at ~$1B. Bumble's headquarters in Austin is nicknamed "The Hive". Beyond the brick and mortar, and the office perks, Bumble also made it a priority to put into place fairly progressive policies for its employees - which now total 80 worldwide, with 85% being female. To best accommodate working women, the office maintains a flexible understanding of work hours and the ability for parents to bring children to the office as needed. They allow for "micro-agility" during the day to deal with the stuff that life just brings - meeting the plumber, running to a doctor’s appointment without having to take PTO.
