About Zola:
At Zola, we are a wedding company, building a smarter wedding suite of wedding products – including a registry, website, guest list manager, and checklist. We are an early-stage, VC-funded consumer technology startup based in New York City. Launched in October 2013, we have quickly become the fastest-growing wedding registry in the United States, with more than 300,000 couples registered. Founded by many of the early team members from Gilt Groupe, we are focused on creating a new kind of e-commerce experience that addresses a huge market — wedding gifts — by reimagining the wedding registry for modern engaged couples and their guests.

Our team brings deep experience from working on award-winning e-commerce sites and mobile apps in past roles at Gilt Groupe, Amazon, J.Crew, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Yahoo.
