Careers

This Is ZestFinance

Our mission is to make fair and transparent credit available to everyone. We're doing that by working with the world’s most innovative banks and lenders to re-invent how they give credit to millions of consumers and businesses.

Good people and deserving businesses are being denied credit because old-world scoring techniques fail to take advantage of today’s data-rich environment. AI and machine learning can make better underwriting decisions using more of the data  already there. That’s where you come in. To achieve our mission, we need crazy smart, creative thinkers who are passionate about finding new ways to address “old” problems.

 

Our Mission

We're socially conscious and passionate about making fair and transparent credit available to everyone. The work you do every day will make a real difference in the lives of regular people.

Work/Life Balance

Our experienced team can build market-leading systems – without working 15-hour days. We provide 6 months paid maternity leave with the option to return to work part-time for 6 months after that (for new primary caregivers) and 3 months paid paternity leave (for new secondary caregivers). And did we mention we offer unlimited vacation time?

Amazing Benefits

We provide robust healthcare plans, matching 401K and unlimited vacation time. To keep Zestians healthy and happy, we have a state of the art onsite gym and a dog friendly office. In addition we have free manicures/ pedicures, free chair massages, reimbursement for wireless services, subsidized onsite car wash and laundry service.

Location, location, location!

Based in sunny Los Angeles, where the temperature is a variation on perfect most days of the year.

Free Lunch

We bring in healthy, delicious lunches every day from some of LA’s best restaurants.

Agile Environment

Using short iterations, we develop and release new features every week.

Interesting Projects

We are working on complex, technically difficult math and computer science. You’ll always be challenged and asked to think creatively to solve tough problems.

Fun

We don’t take ourselves too seriously and believe having fun goes hand in hand with thinking hard. Video games, ping pong, gigantic jigsaw puzzles and game nights are regular activities around here.

Culture

Zestians are widely diverse, and at the same time, we’re united by a common DNA. We’re people who want to change the world. We’re on the customer’s side. We voice our thoughts and the best ideas win. We believe that more data is always better. We take on big challenges, and we relish opportunities to learn along the way.
