Heidi Schriefer is the VP, People & Places at Grindr, the world’s biggest social networking app for the queer community. Heidi joined Grindr in late 2020, shortly after it came under new leadership. One of her greatest joys at Grindr has been retooling their benefits offering to better serve its diverse employee population.

Prior to joining Grindr, Heidi was the VP, People & Places at Looker Data Sciences, a data exploration & discovery business intelligence platform, which was acquired by Google in 2019. During her tenure at Looker the company grew from ~170 employees to over 600, requiring a number of changes to cash, equity, and benefits strategies.

Heidi has been fortunate enough to work for some amazing companies during her 25+ year career in HR including Nike, Yahoo, Sun Microsystems, and GE. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Michigan and a Master’s degree in Labor & Industrial Relations from Michigan State University.
