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 have been working at Zoosk full-time (More than a year)
People are really smart and passionate about the company and work they do. Company culture and values are really strong and company focuses on diversity, eliminating unconscious bias , open communication. Overall there is a good collaboration between cross functional teams. Benefits are good. HR department is very active and involved in the success of employees.
This year while the company is profitable, has been a bit hard due to CEO leaving and currently having an interim CEO. Board is taking their time to make a decision. So the only con is the board which is a bit inactive. But I am hopeful it is just a small hurdle and we will get past that soon and look ahead to make this company successful.
Advice to Management
Board needs to be more active especially now that the company turned around and doing really well. Leadership should continue to focus on innovation and they are.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zoosk in December 2017.
1. HR call to enquire more about your past projects, background, company overview and products they are developing 2. Technical phone screen for initial knowledge test on Android and a small coding exercise on an online collabrator.
