OZK Labs - Innovation to Scale Community Banking
We are OZK Labs - focused on function, driven by data, and obsessed with design. We operate more like a startup than a $22B bank - we move fast, operate on a new tech stack, and have an extremely talented group of product and software engineers.
Bank OZK Innovation Labs was born from our commitment to be a leader in technology and innovation. We recognize the disruption occurring in our industry by smaller fintechs. This team continues to grow because of this commitment and desire to scale beyond traditional branch banking.
We are fixated on changing the way you bank – we challenge outdated business models, products, processes, and technology. Our plans center on flawless digital banking experiences where data flows seamlessly to the next and machine learning provides insights that drive our optimization.
We thrive through positively impacting people’s lives - our North Star. We help our customers live their best financial life, we help small business owners pursue their dreams, and we are dedicated to the communities that we serve.
We root ourselves in the Tampa Bay community by being active contributors to many partnerships. We also open our collaborative space for many local meetups to keep in tune to the heartbeat of the Tampa Bay tech scene.
