“As an organization that was founded in Canada and that serves businesses across the U.S., it’s extremely rewarding to see our growth recognized on such a large scale,” said Tate Hackert, President and Co-Founder of ZayZoon. “Our goal is to empower our customers and help their paychecks go further. In the last year, we’ve nearly doubled our headcount and expanded our platform to include more flexible payout options and increased access to financial education opportunities so that more employees can break the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle that nearly 63% of Americans are living in.”

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector that are transforming the industry. The program runs parallel to the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500™.
