About us

People first. Always.

Hi, I’m Divan, the Founder of Zaphire.

Zaphire is my way of giving back to a nation that helped turn a poor, minority immigrant into the embodiment of the American Dream.

Armed with ambition, determination, and a passion for success, I worked my way through college and eventually got an entry-level job in IT.

Eighteen years later, driven by commitment and belief in myself, I’ve held senior IT positions at the most prominent financial institutions in the world (Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Citi Group and UBS), including Head of QA & Testing, Head of Regional Teams, and QA Director.

Having succeeded way beyond my wildest dreams, Zaphire is my way of aligning great people from any background looking for jobs with employers who believe that bias-free recruitment and a diverse workforce are positives that should be celebrated, supported, and advanced as causes.

Everyone deserves the chance to live their American Dream.
