Mission: Zoosk's mission is to empower everyone to lead a more fulfilling love life.
Francia & Randy are just two of the reasons we love to come in every day.
Our mission is to empower everyone to lead a more fulfilling love life, and we see results every day as new couples thank us for changing their lives.
Innovation is built-in here.
Our founders were engineers who believed in trying, failing, and trying again. We’ve instituted biweekly creative days called “Z Time” that generate innovative projects for internal and customer-facing use, and we also have Hack Days twice a year that produce about 20 projects that we build out. We also have a program called “Sparks” that turns employee ideas into reality.
We give back to each other and to the community.
Whether it’s recognizing our peers with Rave Awards, racing together in a city-wide scavenger hunt, or volunteering at a soup kitchen, we’re all in it together.
We lead the dating industry.
Our behind-the-scenes and user-facing technologies are cutting edge. We offer features that others rush to imitate, like our Photo Verification feature that keeps it real when it comes to going on dates with people who look like their photos.
Get recognized and grow in your career
All of us at Zoosk start out with equity in the company -- we’re in it to win it, together. We recognize each other with our peer-suggested Rave Awards, over ten a week. Best of all, Zoosk walks the walk when it comes to internal promotions: a huge number of employees get promoted each year -- even our CEO is homegrown talent.
It’s all about having fun together!
Most of us here have more than colleagues -- we have friends. That’s worth a whole lot, and it makes coming into work every day way more fun. We get lots of chances for socializing, with meals several times a week, weekly happy hours, and special events.
Barking up the right tree….
Nothing for a “ruff” day like taking a break and playing fetch with one of the many Zoosk doggies on staff. We welcome well-behaved dogs of any stripe, and recognize a pup per month with a special award.
Have a family? Fantastic.
Zoosk has a generous maternity & paternity leave policy, and is supportive of the needs of working moms and dads. We have a whole lot of parents here who support each other, and have a healthy work-life balance.
We trust you, even on vacation.
If you & your manager agree on your time off, you’re free to go. No saving up vacation days to try to get to Hawaii for a long weekend -- you can go ahead to the Mediterranean like you’ve always wanted.
I worked at Zoosk full-time (More than 3 years)
I was at Zoosk for 4 years, in various roles and departments. Every company has its issues, and there was a lot that happened at Zoosk while I was there - two layoffs, CEO transitions, turnover - but overall I had a positive experience. Salaries are competitive for my department - I had interviewed with other well known companies such as Uber that were offering a lot less for more work. Other advantages included a great BI system and a strong data driven mindset. I worked in digital marketing and work for a very similar company where things do not always run as smoothly. I had managers who trained me and encouraged me, changing my career path in the right direction. While I understand the frustrations of many of my former colleagues, I am happy to have worked at Zoosk. Work life balance is the best I've had - I have the same role at a different company and work over 50 hours a week. The technology at Zoosk allowed for less operational tasks which take up a lot of time.
The grass always seems greener, but it's not. Zoosk is a small company, and I think the biggest concern is what will happen next. While I left for personal reasons, I believe the new CEO stirred things up quite a bit.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zoosk.
