Build the future with Tala

Tala runs on trust, innovation, and agency — for our customers and Team Tala alike. We cultivate an environment where everyone can thrive, live life on their terms, and meaningfully contribute as we build a more just and equitable future.

Global talent, local connections

Revolutionizing financial systems demands a best-in-class team, so we cultivate a global team that reflects the diversity of our customers and the communities in which we work. With flexible, remote-first, and hybrid options, our team is all over the world.

Life at Tala


Talazens have the flexibility to live and work around the world. Our five office locations offer space for us to collaborate and connect in person — from Nairobi to Mexico City.

Own your time

From flexible working hours to unlimited PTO, we encourage Talazens to take the time they need. Here you’ll often find calendar blocks for dog walks and school drop-offs — sabbaticals are a norm, and we haven’t even mentioned Sloth Days yet!

Keep growing

We know being the best at what you do requires continued learning, so we invest in Talazens’ development. Here you’ll have the space and support to take your skills to the next level.

We believe in people

This means ensuring everyone at Tala has what they need to grow and succeed. Our benefits are thoughtfully designed to support physical, financial, and emotional well-being.

Our Founding Principles

Believe in People

Understand and dismantle bias. Uphold your commitments; have confidence in others’ ability to uphold theirs. 

Listen and Learn

Make a point to engage with other points of view. Find out why. Turn learnings into action.

Prove Potential by Any Means

Cultivate curiosity. Ask questions relentlessly and thoughtfully experiment. Make data-driven decisions.

Challenge Our Limits

Embrace mistakes as opportunities for learning. Change what isn’t working. Power through adversity.
