It was originally developed by Andi Gutmans and Zeev Suraski while they were students at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. They later founded a company called Zend Technologies in Ramat Gan, Israel. The name Zend is a combination of their forenames, Zeev and Andi.

The first version of the Zend Engine appeared in 1999 in PHP version 4.[1] It was written in C as a highly optimized modular back-end, which for the first time could be used in applications outside of PHP.”
