Introduction

It's an exciting time at ZINIER! Fresh off of our Series A from Accel Partners (one of Silicon Valley’s premier VCs), we are currently expanding our rockstar Product Design team in preparation for the design and launch of products built using the next generation of our platform -- products that meet the needs of our Enterprise clients in a revolutionary new way complete with an updated look/feel and powerful new technology stack.
