DateME Kenya is Kenya’s first ever premium online dating website. The service is targeted towards professional Kenyans and expatriates living in Nairobi and around Kenya, providing them with a place to meet other professional singles in a fun, safe, convenient, online environment. The site was launched in 2013 and, has essentially introduced online dating to East Africa.
We've worked with DateME Kenya since the idea was a seedling, and launched the first version of the website in 2013. We choose Ruby on Rails as our platform, so we could make fast iterations, and adapt quickly to the unforeseen challenges we knew we'd face.
Since internet connection isn't always reliable in Kenya, we've worked to make the site as light-weight and as mobile-friendly as possible for members viewing on a limited connection.
We continue to work with DateME Kenya to develop new features and solutions for the challenges in this exciting and emerging market.
