What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

 Who We Are

Zeta is a next-generation banking-tech company on a mission to help our clients gain competitive advantage and independence from legacy systems to realize their digital strategies – whether that's launching a digital bank, offering new digital 1st payments services, or entering into emerging high-growth buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) and/or banking-as-a-service (BaaS) markets . We aim to be at the center of our clients' needs for next generation banking technology, so they can get their digital transformation and/or strategy right. 
 
Zeta was founded by serial entrepreneurs Bhavin Turakhia and Ramki Gaddapati in 2015 to bring Banking into the 21st century. The industry today is challenged with legacy platforms that were considered a strength in the 90s, but are now crippling banks with high technology debt. With the emergence of digitization and open banking frameworks, newcomers (neo, challenger banks, fintechs and big tech) are leapfrogging the status quo by utilizing the latest technologies and delivering innovative solutions that traditional vendors and banks can no longer compete with. This is where Zeta comes in. Zeta has built, from the ground up, a cloud native platform for banks to modernize financial services. The company’s mission is to “disrupt the disruptors” by enabling banks to launch innovative services by combining banks' core capabilities with the latest and greatest technologies. The result is a modern banking stack that gives banks a competitive advantage to tackle neo/challenger banks, fintech or big tech threats and build the digital bank of the future. 
 
By joining Zeta you'll help shape a brighter financial future for our clients – using the industry’s 1st and only innovative, mobile-first technology banking stack to transform an industry that hasn't changed in decades. With offices across the United States and abroad, we're one of the fastest growing companies in banking-tech – offering the agility of a start-up with the stability of seasoned management and dynamic, passionate employees. Join us to invest in yourself, your career, and the financial world.
 
Our Journey
In May of 2021, Zeta secured a $250 million investment from SoftBank Vision Fund 2 in one of the largest ever single investments in a banking tech startup globally. This investment, coupled with Zeta’s growth trajectory, has increased Zeta’s previous valuation of $300 million to a current valuation of $1.45 billion resulting in unicorn status. Zeta now operates in 8 countries and to date has issued more than 10 million cards globally. 
Zeta has built the industry’s most modern digital cloud native platform in the industry, consisting of new age prepaid / debit / credit issuance digital products for banks, retailers and fintech issuers. These products provide a new age (“Apple card like”) user experience and enables Financial Institutions to rapidly deliver digital-first modern payment solutions including credit / debit / prepaid, digital banking, gifting, benefits, DDA, commercial card, expense management and money transfer. All of these services are vertically integrated into a single platform with fully developed front-end digital and back office security, fraud, compliance, support, and configuration services. 
 
While the industry has been focused on consolidation of companies with outdated legacy systems, Zeta has consolidated a modern financial services platform resulting in a 10-fold reduction in solution complexity and a 10-fold increase in solution capability. 
 
Over the next five years, Zeta aims to capture significant global market share and be recognized as the undisputed market leader in digital-first retail banking platforms. Our goal is not to rip-and-replace, but leapfrog to next generation solutions by enabling financial institutions to expand their products and solutions to serve the digitally savvy consumer.
