Product overview:

FintechOS accelerates the adoption of modern technology for financial services institutions (i.e. banks & insurance companies) by rethinking how apps are built for the enterprise.

Our platform allows any tech-savvy user to create apps by using an intuitive visual editor to design everything from the database model, to business workflows and the user interface. This rapid app development process imposes virtually no limits on creativity and complexity but at the same time - since all apps run inside FintechOS - makes sure they benefit from enterprise-grade security and scalability.

This visual editor (FintechOS Studio) makes use of a growing library of backend services and reusable components ranging from simple UI blocks to complex modules adding advanced functionality such as security, KYC, video conferencing, digital signatures, transactional emails or A.I.

Our customers use FintechOS to build, deploy and run apps in record time, easily integrating the latest technologies required to offer a modern, personalized user experience for all their services.

We're fully aware that the impact of our work can be felt by hundreds of millions of people around the world - the end users who access financial services through FintechOS apps deployed in banks and insurance companies across the globe.

That's why we're making sure we have the right muscle to do it: we are a strong team of technology experts, each with more than 15+ years’ experience building complex software - and we're looking for fellow engineers who can run this marathon - and occasional sprints - with us :)
