At Zitara, we build cutting-edge software solutions that empower companies to deeply understand their batteries, both in design and deployment. It’s all part of our work to enable a renewable energy revolution, powered by safer batteries, at a lower cost, with less waste.
Shyam started his career in consumer electronics. But after nearly a decade helping to architect, design, and manufacture 10+ products for companies like Apple, Nest, and Google, he began to think about the environmental impact of building devices that embody a great deal of energy in countries with loose emissions standards, and inevitably end up in landfills. He and Evan founded Zitara with the mission of accelerating the electrification of transportation and grid-scale energy storage.
