Personalized Matchmaking Startup

Professional, private matchmaking service in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for successful men and women offering a personalized one-on-one experience for those looking to meet the love of their life.  It is not a hookup, one- night-stand app, or website with an online database of profiles and pictures to choose from. There is no “swiping” or endless messaging without actually ever meeting someone.  Instead, the goal is to help real people who are looking for a serious, long-term relationship find their perfect match.  The startup company’s clients are private, with no online profiles or social media presence; all clients' information is kept strictly confidential.  The team delivers personalized, hand-selected matches perfectly suited for each client.  They have brought this concept from the United States, where millions of successful couples have already been matched since this concept began there over 25 years ago.  The mission is to create happy and lasting couples in Argentina.

The ideal candidate is someone who can work independently as well as with others and likes to make decisions and offer suggestions. This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a US-based startup in Buenos Aires (the owner is from the US).  The company is looking for an outgoing, self-starter who wants to be a part of a team to create and brainstorm new ideas. This role is much more than doing menial tasks and emptying an inbox. Their interns are totally a part of the decision-making process in every aspect of the business.
