Hello, we're Zest AI

Zest AI leverages the power of machine learning and big data to challenge the traditional method of credit underwriting. Lenders use Zest Automated Machine Learning (ZAML) to make better decisions on loan portfolios; which in response increases revenue, reduces risk, and automates highly regulated compliance measures within fin-tech.

Why Work with Us?

We're a mission driven organization that's collectively striving to build a better tomorrow. We build some of the world's most powerful machine learning tools and optimized data models to help our customers meet the financial needs of people around the world.

An Insider's view of Zest AI

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We're committed to providing value and great work. This commitment is built upon a strong foundation of communication and collaboration, shaped by one’s personal working-style preference. We're able to create a flexible work environment through this understanding and we’ve been able to accomplish great things and enjoy remarkable success to date!

Sean

VP of Data Science

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 diverse 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.

Jose

VP of Technology

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Zest provides employees a lot of autonomy to explore areas that pertain to career growth. Decisions are made collectively, based on employees' preferences and company's needs. Since joining within a year, I've been able to play a key role in critical company milestones and progress my career into leadership development.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The first step is to create a safe space where we encourage new ideas and give feedback to improve along the way. So I try to encourage transparency 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.
