Experience is dependent on your manager and team

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great to learn about Fintech industry with interesting problems to solve. There are a lot of smart engineers that work here but a lot of great ones leave. Your experience is highly dependent on your manager and if they like you and will push for your promotion. There is a focus to hire less full-time engineers and more contractors in lower cost areas.


Competitive compensation


Work life balance, Hiring less full-time engineers and more consultants

Decent but difficult life-work-balance

There are a lot of fun technologies and problems to solve. There is however a huge work-life balance issue. Long hours were very common and encouraged. People with bigger home responsibilities might not like it as much.


free food, good compensation, fun problems to solve


high stress environment
