Stay Tuned, More to Come!
Zuva is a word from the Shona language meaning “sun”, a symbol of light and illumination. We think light is an appropriate metaphor for our technology, which enables users to see information that would be obscured without it.
The Zuva name also acknowledges our history. Kira, the name of our predecessor company, means “ray of light” in Sanskrit, and we liked how “Zuva” had a similar meaning but in a different language.

We celebrate our diverse population and believe that different perspectives, backgrounds, knowledge and experiences make us better as a company and as people. It is important to us that every employee feels a strong sense of belonging and is able to bring their true, authentic self to work each day.
At the heart of DEI is the idea of fairness, belonging and respect in all we do. At Zuva, DEI is considered in all facets of our company including hiring practices, retention, professional development and internal and external relationships. We are an equal opportunity employer with a commitment to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. Zuva provides a fair and consistent hiring process, a flexible work environment to meet different needs, and an inclusive employee benefits program that recognizes relationships and family constructs come in many different forms.
That being said, we know there is a lot more work to be done, things to learn and voices to be heard - we will continue to evolve our understanding of proactive DEI practices, and regularly review our programs, processes and actions at Zuva.
