On the TED stage, Shivani Siroya, Tala’s CEO and Founder, shares about the challenge people in emerging markets face when they are unable to secure credit and the economic potential unlocked when they partner with Tala.
We are engineers, data scientists, designers, marketers, people ops professionals, and finance geeks all passionate about extending financial freedom to the billions of underserved people across the globe.
Tala is remote-first with an HQ office in sunny Santa Monica, CA. You choose what works best for you. And with offices in Mexico City, Nairobi, Manila and Bangalore, we offer opportunities to travel to meet our customers.
We offer full coverage for health, dental and vision insurance for our team and their families and unlimited PTO. We also provide wellness benefits like free messages, yoga and a company-wide day (or two) off each month just to relax.
Every week an expert teaches a master class on everything from SQL queries to growth hacking, while the team digs into delicious eats. We also sponsor employee trainings, visits to professional conferences and more.
We take fun seriously: food adventures throughout downtown, ping pong, intramural leagues, go-karting, workout classes and cooking tutorials from Tala's best resident chefs.
