Meet Bumble's Global Connector Bees — and Follow Their Journey!
In 2019, Bumble set out to offer the ultimate dream job: an all-expenses-paid nine month stint traveling the world, navigating the nuances of dating, making friends, and networking in countries including Indonesia, Germany, Mexico, the UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Japan, the US, and more.
Now, meet the two inaugural Global Connector Bees who'll take on this exciting challenge — because we couldn't pick just one from the thousands of impressive applicants!
The duo will start their adventure in January in vibrant, fast-paced Singapore to coincide with the launch of Bumble Bizz in that growing market. They'll spend about two weeks in each location, using Bumble's three modes as their guide.
