Why Join Zesty? At Zesty, we're a team of driven, forward-thinkers passionate about pushing the boundaries of cloud optimization. Our culture encourages creativity, curiosity, and a willingness to embrace challenges.

We care about:

  • Diversity & Inclusion: Be yourself! We welcome employees from all backgrounds and have created a workplace where everyone can feel empowered.
  • Transparency: We share our success stories, failures, processes, numbers, and everything in between. If you want to know something that wasn't shared with you – just ask!
  • One Team: We genuinely trust each other, enabling us to act as one team working together toward the same mission. All team members are equally important.
  • Open Communication & Feedback: When facing challenges, we always look for fresh ideas and ways to overcome them. We embrace constructive feedback that can and should be given to anyone.
  • Humility: Ego obscures and disrupts everything: the planning process, the ability to take good advice, and the ability to accept constructive feedback. We operate with a high degree of humility.
