So…Why the name “Zeplin”?
Picking a name is tough. Zeplin started in Turkey. First up, we built a script that lists Turkish words that resemble English words. We wanted everyone (especially our moms) to understand and pronounce it…and we just liked the word Zeplin!
At Zeplin, we help teams build beautiful products
We know that if we pull these off, we succeed:
We do our best to understand our users well and we put ourselves in their shoes.
Commit to quality
For everything we do, we aim for the best — we don’t believe in ”good enough”.
Be kind and inclusive
We treat others like we would want to be treated, with kindness and inclusion.
Enjoy the ride
We don’t just work hard, we have fun while doing it. We reflect this in our work.
Take proactive ownership
We don’t wait to be told what to do, we take ownership from A to Z.
It all started with an idea…

Some fun (or weird) facts about us:

Some of us think that cilantro tastes like soap. They say it’s all about genetics. Is it though?
