Our values

For our team

Build with empathy

We all want to build a company and a product people love, but in order to do that we need to empathize with our co-workers, clients and end users.

For our team

Learn and iterate

Growing and building a company from 0 to 1 is not easy, we will all make mistakes but it is what we learn and improve upon that will set us apart from our competitors and build a strong and coherent product and vision.

For the world

Fintech first

We want to empower companies to build hyper-individualized financial products their users love. Our robust and reliable payroll infrastructure allows any company to launch their own payroll product.

For the world

Contributing to Government 2.0

We see payroll as the backbone of the American economy, and are humbled to be reinventing technology that will have an outsized effect on the way Americans are paid.

Our story

Puzzl started as a gig staffing company, and realized there was no development-friendly way to payout high volumes of W2 workers efficiently, automatically, and compliantly.

To ensure other companies didn’t run into the same problem, we decided to build Zeal, a payroll API that enables customers to build their own payroll products.
