Who are we?

Lex: The Social App Where Queers Meet

Lex is a welcoming space for conversation and expression—where LBGTQ folks can build relationships, have fun, and belong. Lex is a new type of social network that connects queer friends and community. We're looking for talented humans who are interested in building the future of Lex alongside us. Lex is based in NYC and Berlin.

2022 is the most thrilling year at Lex yet, we have a three pronged strategy to boost Lex into the world as a social network, connecting LGBTQ folks to new friends and community. We are evolving out of our dating app persona into something bigger (and better) – responding to the way folks are already using Lex. We are excitingly working on rebrand this year, along with improving chats, building groups and creating seamless ways for new friends to discover each other.

In November 2019 we released Lex app MVP. Since then Lex raised pre-seed and seed round of funding. We closed our last round in November 2021 with funding from the people behind Co–Star, Peanut, Zola, Outdoor Voices, Ro, and more.

How we work

HOW WE DO IT

Lex is both local & remote. New York City, Berlin and Los Angeles are our home bases. We are a remote team with some folks living elsewhere. We thrive on documentation of decisions, accountability and individual goals. We value empathy and collaboration.

Lex is a community-first product. We work hard to create an exceptional product to an undervalued and under-represented audience. We are quick to test new ideas. Minimal viable way to test is fundamental, ship ideas, see how the community responds and make decisions. We strive to bring women and people of marginalized genders together to find meaningful connections. There is nothing more satisfying, interactions and connections fuel us.

Lex builds trust. We built Lex from the inside, out. The groundwork for Lex was formed by the queer community and we will continue to listen and build for our community. Working together with honest, kind communication to find the best solution. We have the ability to bend and be flexible with our ideas.

Lex is still early, seed stage startup. Join the team of a company that defines a new category, across devices and platforms (iOS, Android). Equity will match the company stage and experience. We're a small team with a big vision. Are you as excited about Lex as we are?!

OPERATING PRINCIPLES

A Team of Lovers Cannot Lose We are a team who love and respect each other and the community we are building for. When our roots stem from a place of love and understanding, we can create a space for queer love and friendship that simply cannot lose!

Embrace Queerness Embrace queerness as a value. We think differently and work creatively. We embrace our queerness, we work beyond the binary. We embrace what is experimental and non-traditional.

Collaborate with Kindness Working together with honest, kind communication to find the best solution. We have the ability to compromise, to bend and be flexible with our ideas. We invite respectful feedback from our teammates and our community.

Be Confident & Proud We take care to research and ideate our ideas in an effort to produce top-notch work. We stand proudly behind what we produce as a team and individually.

Build Quality and Be Scrappy We work hard to bring an exceptional product to an undervalued audience. We have high standards for quality, and push ourselves to be innovative and creative. As a young company, we get there by thinking quick on our feet, being iterative, and doing the best we can with minimal resources.

Make Calm & Thoughtful Decisions We prioritize our rest and welfare, so that our minds and bodies are healthy enough to keep producing the best product out there. We are not impulsive. Rather, we make informed decisions backed by data, research, and the needs of our community.
