“Distillery is responsive and reliable. Their developers can closely collaborate with internal teams to speed up timelines and help stabilize mission-critical projects. They’re a valuable addition, and their work contributed to successes like meeting funding goals and doubling the number of app users.”
In 2016, Tala struggled to find the highly skilled software engineers needed to help them achieve their ambitious market expansion goal of providing microloans to underserved populations. Tala’s Head of Engineering recommended Distillery to his CTO, having worked successfully with Distillery on several projects at his prior company.
Tala continues to expand into new markets, broadening its reach and gaining impressive backers like PayPal. In 2019, Tala’s Series D funding raised more than $110 million to enter India’s fast-growing FinTech space.
As Tala has grown, they’ve augmented their expert Distillery team with expanded capabilities and additional developers and QA engineers. In 5 years of partnership, our team has established the trust, collaboration, and deep relationships formed by working toward shared outcomes.
Tala offers the world’s most accessible consumer credit product, instantly underwriting and then disbursing loans to people who have never had a formal credit history. The Tala app uses advanced data science alongside users’ smartphone data to instantly underwrite and disburse microloans ranging from $10 to $500.
