Core Values

Zoosk’s diverse employees enrich both our professional environment and the work we do. Our various backgrounds, cultures, and points of view are a large part of what defines our organization. Zoosk is committed to giving back to our communities both personally and financially. At Zoosk, we're a team of passionate individuals that value collaboration, respect, innovation, and achievement.  Our co-founders were an engineer and a rocket scientist 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. We also have Hack Days twice a year, with about 20 projects from each that we build and incorporate into our products.

Vacation & Benefits

Recognition and growth opportunities 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 regualr awards, and a number of employees get promoted each year.   A fun work environment Most of us here are more than colleagues—we’re friends. And it makes coming into work every day way more fun. We get lots of chances for socializing with free lunches, weekly happy hours, and special events. Great salary and benefits With a solid selection of health insurance options, FSA, 401k, equity, and even a gym membership, you’ll be in good hands at Zoosk. Our pay is also competitive with other companies in San Francisco. Support for parents Zoosk has a generous maternity and 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.   Flexible vacation time If you and 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 to the Mediterranean like you’ve always wanted.
