Last year’s fintech_devcon was the first conference I’ve attended in North America. I’ve been building communities around tech startups in South Africa for almost twelve years, so I’ve visited my share of fintech events.
The flagship fintech developer conference is back and ready to bring builders together for a third year. The purpose of fintech_devcon is to democratize fintech knowledge across payments, compliance, finance, and more.
At Moov, we believe problem-solving should take priority over shiny new technology. While we love breaking the payments mold (in 2022, we became the only cloud-native acquiring payments Processor), we’re also laser-focused on getting the details right—down to the tiniest transactions.
When I started in fintech, it wasn’t commonly called fintech yet. We just called it financial services back then. In that previous life, I spent a lot of time connecting to processors, and a lot of banking cores—42 of them, if I remember right.
Moov just made Built In’s list of the top 50 fully remote startups to work for in the U.S. and Purpose Job’s Best Remote Places to Work in 2023, and while everyone here is thrilled that our workplace culture has received recognition for the second year in a row, it got me thinking.
My design career started at the age of six when I got my first Polaroid camera. I was obsessed with taking photos, and I started out by taking a photo of every family member, friend, or stranger who would let me, as well as many portraits of the family dog dressed up in my clothes.
From a consumer’s perspective, debit and credit cards are relatively straightforward. You sign up for a card, and you use that card to pay for goods or services – either with money directly from your account (for debit card purchases) or with borrowed money that you’ll pay back (for credit card purchases).
I learned a valuable lesson as a young product manager years ago that transitioning your product from a cost center to a profit center for your customers changes the dynamic of your relationship with them.
We’re excited to announce that our flagship developer conference is back and ready to bring together builders in 2022. fintech_devcon started as a way to democratize fintech knowledge across payments, compliance, finance, and more.
