Why ZS?

I joined ZS for two key reasons. The first reason was the opportunity for growth. The second reason: the people. Everyone I met at ZS was unique, interesting and impressive.


My Favorite Project

My favorite project was my first project with ZS because I had so much to learn. We were investigating the potential impact that an impending regulatory change would have on our client’s product. By interviewing customers and experts in the field we were able to gain insights into the potential implications for our client. I had to immediately become an expert in the field and that experience was exhilarating.


My After-Hours Engagement/Activities

Outside of work, I enjoy being active and playing sports. Whether it’s hitting the slopes (I am an avid skier), playing on my soccer team or the ZS LA basketball team, I like to get outside and be active. I also love to travel and take any chance I get to go abroad and visit friends in Cambodia, Australia or any other corner of the globe, or explore the California coast and the rest of the U.S.

ZS in Short

The phrase I would use to describe ZS is "effectively quirky." Everyone I have met at ZS has uniquely fascinating interests and abilities that they are excited to share with others. ZSers are capable, successful and genuinely interested in the work they do.


My Advice for Potential ZSers

I would suggest that people considering ZS think about their career from a long-term perspective and reflect on the opportunities that ZS provides to gain expertise, build skills, challenge yourself and provide yourself with constantly motivating opportunities.
