Zeta intends to replace many legacy systems in use by banks for processing payments. Banks need to leapfrog into an era of connected devices and omnipresent commerce.
Banking should become an integral part of the commerce and enterprise systems, thereby enabling seamless consumer and business transactions.
The average number of interactions an account holder may have with a bank would increase to 12-15 per day in the near term from the current average of 3-
4 transactions per month. These could grow to an unimaginably large number in future. Most banking systems aren't designed for this scale.
In many ways, these systems are limiting the imagination of possibilities. We want this changed fundamentally, in an interoperable and regulatory compliant manner.
We build large-scale transaction processing systems that can work with many current and future payment networks. We build applications that help banks realise the value of this new approach early.
We help banks to rapidly deliver the value of these applications to their customers.
As a Director of Engineering, you will be playing a pivotal role in enabling Zeta to deliver to its ambitions. You will work with an amazing peer group that fuels this ambition.
You will take up initiatives that will create a lasting impact on millions of individuals across various countries. Depending on the business unit and the ongoing activities, you will be responsible for several engineering teams each with 8-
12 people. Overall your span of management could include 30 to 60 engineers and 4-6 engineering managers.
