He was the company's initial CEO until March 2015, when he was replaced by former e Bay and Microsoft executive Chris Payne.Payne left the company, and Rad simultaneously returned as CEO, in August 2015.
Rad has said the impetus for Tinder's creation was his observation that "no matter who you are, you feel more comfortable approaching somebody if you know they want you to approach them." He believed a "double opt-in" system could be created to potentially alleviate the stress of meeting new people.
In 2015, Tinder introduced the ability to go back to rejected profiles via a "rewinding" function, allowing users to correct mistaken actions.
This was previously not possible, as rejected profiles would simply not appear again.
Initially, instead of utilizing Tinder's current swiping motion for making matches, users had to click either a green heart or a red X to select or move on from a displayed photo.
Sean Rad has served as Tinder's CEO on two occasions.
