Financial institutions aren’t known for their technical agility. Between legacy systems, overhead concerns, and the high bars of regulatory and security compliance, banks and other financial service providers have historically been resistant to technological innovation. Fintech is changing that.
In recent years, perceptions of fintech have changed: Once the stuff of scrappy startups, it’s an integral part of operations at established institutions. It’s also an integral part of our lives given how it’s changing the way we bank, invest, pay, shop, and do business. Whether it’s through mobile apps or blockchain, fintech delivers change that is more cost-effective, more secure, and quicker than business as usual.
In our work consulting
custom software, we’ve seen use cases for fintech solutions
that range from financial deal management to pet wellness to solar. We’ve found that the best fintech engineers
have a deep understanding of how the financial services world works, plus a hackers’ approach to security: They’re constantly thinking about potential vulnerabilities and building software with powerful protections.
