Dashing Date is a well-established Canadian speed dating company, headquartered in Montreal, that is in its 9th year of business. We specialize in organizing high-quality, expertly curated virtual dating experiences for single professionals who are serious about meeting someone.
ABOUT OUR TEAM:
Our team is driven, friendly and passionate about the dating space and helping people find love! We work hard, with integrity and a positive mindset. We challenge and question everything, including our own work and processes. We stay ahead of the curve and are always ready to embrace change!
Our team values open and honest communication and is always willing to hear each other out. We love cracking jokes and bringing joy to the workplace. We’ve designed our jobs so that we can all work remotely, from the comfort of our own homes. Most importantly, we really are a team (even when we’re working separately), which means that we are always there to encourage and support each other.
Dashing Date started as a speed dating company back in 2012 and within a couple of years, we were offering matchmaking services too! The matchmaking division grew very organically, clients who were serious about meeting someone but couldn’t always make it out to our events started to request one-on-one set-ups so, that’s just what we did! Our matchmaking services are now available in three cities, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.
