We think trust is the most powerful currency we have – both outside the Tala walls and within.
We are engineers, data scientists, customer experience designers, marketers, people operations professionals and finance geeks all passionate about extending financial freedom to the billions of underserved people across the globe.
We believe in people from every type of background — around the world, and within our company. We call this #RadicalTrust.

“In my role, I try to become one person that will satisfy the business, make sure the developer delivers the right thing, and — most importantly — act as the customer. The customer perspective is most important because that’s where the impact is.” Full blog here.
Our Founding Principles
Learn from everyone. Lead by serving. Enable the growth of others and empower them to shine. Set destinations, not paths. Give credit where it’s due.
Cultivate curiosity. Ask questions relentlessly and thoughtfully experiment. Look for new and better evidence. Make rigorous, data-driven decisions that optimize for our people's’ needs.
Stand up for what you believe in. Challenge the status quo. Embrace what you don’t know and ask for help. Act on what you learn as a team.
Understand and dismantle bias. Uphold your commitments; have confidence in others’ ability to uphold theirs. Give and seek feedback that is direct, honest, and actionable. Help each other grow.
Start with an open mind. Engage with other points of view. Find out why. Share what you learn. Turn learnings into action.
Diversity, Equity and the Tala Mission
We serve a global customer base with complex and unique needs, and fulfilling our mission requires a diverse team of equals working together across borders and boundaries. It is our firmly held belief that our company culture should reflect the kind of world we want to build: one where all people are seen, understood, and trusted and have an equal opportunity to fulfill their potential.
We offer Santa Monica-based team members opportunities to travel to our markets and get to know our customers.
Every Tuesday at lunch, a resident expert teaches a master class on everything from SQL queries to growth hacking, while digging into delicious eats from nearby hotspots. We also sponsor employee visits to professional conferences.
We take fun seriously: food adventures throughout downtown, ping pong, intramural leagues, go-karting, workout classes, and weekend outings into the great outdoors.
Every week, we celebrate Wine Down Wednesday, enjoying food, drinks, games and each others’ company. Every month, we invite our community to join in on the fun.
We offer full coverage health, dental and vision insurance for our team and their families.
We offer traditional and Roth 401(k) plans, so employees can start saving for their futures from day one.
