Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

All of our conference rooms are named after famous 80's bands and have the records on the door to help us keep them straight! Our benefits rooms features hair metal band Poison, our main boardroom is Iron Maiden, and my favorite conference room is Devo.

Executive Assistant

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Some of the best ideas for my team have come from family style lunches with a random group of coworkers. Our open office space allows unfettered access to everyone in the company, and when you couple that with reasonable confidence that you’re surely not the smartest person within earshot, cross-functional collaboration at Zest is just status quo.

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful Business Analyst at ZestFinance embraces new and challenging problems, takes ownership of driving a team to develop data-driven, rigorous solutions, and clearly communicates those solutions to a variety of stakeholders. And they do all of that while never taking themselves too seriously and remembering to have a good time!

Leland

Lead Business Analyst

The first step is to create a safe space where they feel that they can give voice to ideas and get feedback. So I try to encourage openness and I try to show my team that their input is valued. When people know that they can share their ideas, and that behavior is rewarded and reinforced, they’re more likely to be thoughtful and creative.

Jay

CTO

I love working in a talented team with individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Across the board, we have expertise in a comprehensive set of data science problems, and our ever-growing aptitude in predictive modeling enables and encourages senior management to pursue novel, challenging goals. It’s thrilling to see such direct impact of my work.
