About this Episode

Our expert hosts, David M. Brear, is joined by some great guests to ask: "What would happen to financial services if we put the engineers in charge?"

The whole fintech industry is built on top of complex tech stacks, constructed and maintained by engineers.

Their value to the industry has never been in doubt, but where they sit in the business structure changes from company to company.

We've put together a panel of experts to discuss how the role of engineers has changed in financial services, the challenges they have to contend with, and what the future of financial services would look like if we put the engineers in charge.

  • Nick Stemp, Engineering Director, 11:FS
  • Johannes Schaback, CTO, SumUp
  • Simon Vans-Colina, CTO, BigPay
