Tagged Culture Fosters an Entrepreneurial Spirit -- CareerBliss on Culture

Posted February 14, 2013

Tagged is blazing trail in social discovery, helping more than 330 million users worldwide make new connections every day.

So, what is it like inside the San Francisco-based company?

Nik Blanchet, content manager at Tagged, sums it up: "My coworkers? Dazzlingly competent. My projects? Mentally invigorating. The culture? Empoweringly grounded. Tagged is professional sanity.”

Tagged’s employee-owners have created a mission-focused culture that fosters an entrepreneurial and collaborative spirit. And with plenty of perks – office goodies, catered lunches and dog friendly digs, to name a few – the Tagged culture fosters fun as well.

“We are profitable and growing and believe that we control our own destiny,” Says co-founder and CEO Greg Tseng. “all of us are here working toward the same mission: to enable anyone to meet and socialize with new people. We all share and respect the same values, so the people here are really motivated, self-driven, and passionate about our team goals. We are do-ers, people who like to see the fruits of their labor.”
