SF BUSINESS TIMES - Oct 1 - Zoosk is facing two massive rounds of layoffs this year and next, before its German-based parent company Spark Networks moves the operation out of San Francisco. Spark Networks acquired Zoosk earlier this year in a deal valued at $255M. The company wrote in a letter to shareholders that it plans to slash 66% of its workforce by the end of this year. It will then institute another round of layoffs to cut 80% of the workforce by April, with the company fully exiting San Francisco by the end of June as a cost-cutting move. It is not clear how many employees currently work for Zoosk. However, in 2017, Zoosk had 93 employees.
