Hiring Kit: Fintech Engineer
Over the past decade or so, particularly after the general proliferation of smartphones at the consumer level, the global banking industry has been disrupted by startups implementing innovative and sometimes revolutionary financial technology platforms. These applications have transformed the way many consumers use banking and financial services, to the point where some traditional banking has become outdated and practically obsolete.
Developing the fintech used by these new banking platforms requires the services of specialized software developers and engineers. Fintech engineers combine the sophisticated skills of a software developer with the insight of dedicated data analysts to create user experiences that transcend the traditional conventions of an outdated, autocratic banking system.
