Join Lolly
Pioneer social dating with us.
Our Mission
Make dating more equitable by giving people the tools to tell their stories
Lolly is the first Social Dating platform—think TikTok meets Tinder. We want to make dating more fun by letting users be funny, attractive, interesting, adventurous, and more through short-form videos.
Our main ingredient is fun, and we believe that our work should make each morning one in which we are excited to build. Most startups do not have the privileged of building products for intimate parts of millions of consumers lives. We can effectuate change by bringing new friends and loved ones together.
Guiding Principles
Our values guide us to better serve our students and to work more effectively as a team.

Meritocracy above all

Hard work beats proficiency
The privilege of having a seat at our table comes with the expectation that you will outwork your peers and place a diligent work ethic above all else. We believe that greatness belongs to those who want it the most.

Meet a few teammates
Hear why members of our team love working at Lolly.
Why did you decide to join Lolly?
I enjoy working on teams that have a lot of hustle and passion, and I think Lolly is an exciting innovation in an outdated space.
What would your Lolly videos consist of?
I mainly post videos surrounding adventures and friends because that’s how I like to spend my time!
What about Lolly’s mission is most compelling to you?
Lolly’s mission around genuine connections through self expressive video content is something that is lacking right now in both the social and dating spaces which is an exciting opportunity.
What advice would you give somebody who wants to find love on Lolly?
Create videos that help people best get to know you and shy away from doing what you think is cool or trendy.
Why did you decide to join Lolly??
The execution ability and vision from the Lolly team gave me the conviction to leave Turo, a company which at the time was preparing for IPO, and move to Los Angeles to build the future of the dating.
What would your Lolly videos consist of?
It would probably be a couple videos of me doing silly things on my boosted board or a couple of cooking videos to show off my skills.
What about Lolly’s mission is most compelling to you?
Making dating more equitable by leveraging videos makes so much sense and is a practical solution to an all-time dated paradigm.
What advice would you give somebody who wants to find love on Lolly?
Better start clapping videos on Lolly!
Why did you decide to join Lolly?
One of the reasons I joined Lolly was for the opportunity to work with the incredible team. The amount of passion and commitment was unusual and further propelled me to go all in on the mission. I was certain that we were going to break our milestones and achieve whatever we were striving for from the sheer intensity of passion of the Lolly team.
What would your Lolly videos consist of?
My Lolly videos would typically entail some of my most joyful moments, me with friends or with my family. If I feel extra spicy, I might show off my talents that I can showcase to other people.
What about Lolly’s mission is most compelling to you?
Lolly’s idea in launching a more lively dating app is what keeps me going. I have always thought that pictures and bios are not enough to get to know a person. You get to experience a more rich connection from a few seconds in a video of a person, their facial expressions, their body language, their voice and the way they talk et.. All of this could never be deducted from pictures. It gives all short dudes like me around the world a chance (hahaha!).
**What advice would you give somebody who wants to find love on Lolly?**
I I would heartily recommend every person who has used dating apps to download Lolly. Come for the dating but stay for the fun.
I have been a day-one believer of the team over at Lolly and am convinced that they will execute until they have found a great deal of success.
The Lolly team has a unique ability to consistently power through and hit new benchmarks as their age and understanding of Gen-Z is a superpower.
