Providing a self-organising, highly scalable team of competent engineers.
Neyber, an award-winning fintech partners with employers to support their workforce’s financial wellbeing with access to financial education, savings and affordable, salary-deducted loans – all at no cost or risk to the employer.
Neyber has been included in KPMG’s list of the top 100 fintech companies, recognised as Ethical Financial Services Provider of the Year at the Money Age Awards and became the first alternative lender to be accredited by the Lending Standards Board. Neyber has also been recognised as one of the top 50 most disruptive companies in the UK by Real Business and won “Benefits Innovation of the Year”, at the Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards
We started working together in July 2017 when Neyber was looking for a partner with competencies necessary to increase the development capacity and speed up the rollout of their products using a variety of leading-edge cloud-based technologies.
In the course of our cooperation, we were able to show operational agility by scaling the team up and down, depending on Neyber’s changing business requirements. We started as a team of 5 and gradually extended our cooperation, reaching over 20 people working on three different projects. Once the first milestones were achieved, we smoothly scaled-down, wrapping ourselves around our client’s needs.
We are proud to be working with Neyber not only because of the technological aspect of our cooperation but also because our organisations are truly aligned – both our companies aim to create solutions that empower people and make a positive contribution to human life.
This was especially exhibited in the last project we were working on, which was a portal aimed to improve financial awareness and educate people on how to manage their money better. It allows access to guides with tips on how to be better-off and tools such as an easy-to-use savings calculator, designed to give a clear picture of one’s finances.
Beyond software development
Our role extended beyond software development, though. We proved our technical expertise helping with Business Analysis by proactively agreeing the requirements and trying to find the best answer to address Neyber’s business challenges. We also shared our knowledge, recommended solutions and helped with Neyber’s innovative software by verifying the business value of new technologies, such as a Proof of Concept with Machine Learning.
Compliance and security are very important to Neyber as a regulated business therefore, in addition to software development, our Security Team conducted a series of Penetration Tests.
Building a long-lasting relationship, it was necessary for us to become a self-organising team that required the minimum need for client management, following a mature development process based on ‘inspect and adapt’.
