We believe AI can be a
force for social equity.

Zest AI’s mission since our founding in 2009 has been to make fair and transparent credit available to all.

We are dedicated to building a more equitable financial system

We’re a small company making a big impact

We’re a diverse team of high horsepower people coming together to deliver bold, smart, and innovative AI solutions for highly regulated industries—but we’re a bit quirky too, never quite satisfied with the status quo.

We think a little Zest makes a big difference.
