Badoo returns to Silicon Milkroundabout

LONDON, 30th October 2012: Badoo, the world’s largest social network for meeting new people, will be attending this year’s Silicon Milkroundabout -  Saturday 10th- Sunday 11th November, at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane.

As part of its ongoing recruitment drive, Badoo is looking to meet London’s top tech talent to help support the company’s global growth. For the second consecutive year, it will be providing the prime networking and socialising space at the event, the Badoo Bar.

Silicon Milkroundabout is the free jobs fair which matches some of the UK’s leading, and most exciting tech start-ups with the best developers, product managers and designers from across London, the UK and Europe. From 12pm till 5pm, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Badoo to discuss the roles available at its uber-cool Soho offices.

Boasting more than 160 million users worldwide, Badoo is used in 40 different languages, 180 countries and its growth has been supported by the company’s innovative location-based app, which is now available on Android, iPhone, Blackberry and Windows, as well as WAP.

Sarah McQuade, Badoo’s HR Director said: “We’re so pleased that Silicon Milkroundabout invited us to bring the Badoo Bar back again after it proved to be such a fun and dynamic focal point of last year’s event. This is one of the best opportunities in the calendar to mingle with London’s best and brightest in the tech arena. We are looking forward to meeting creative, self-starters that have the hunger and maturity to join Badoo as we continue our incredible rate of growth, particularly on our mobile platform.”

Since being founded in 2006, Badoo has seen rapid growth as a result of its runaway success in Europe and Latin America. It has now established itself as the world’s largest social network for meeting new people.

The company is hiring across the board and is particularly interested in receiving applications from product and engineering talent.  For more information on the roles available at Badoo, please visit: http://corp.badoo.com/en/jobs/
