Finastra – Why Work For Us?


Finastra unlocks the potential of people and businesses by creating a dynamic platform for open innovation in the world of financial services.

Formed in 2017 by the combination of two global Fintech leaders, D+H and Misys, we build and deploy innovative, mission-critical technology on our open Fusion software architecture and cloud ecosystem. Our approach stimulates co-operation and co-creation to transform financial institutions – delivering better experiences for our customers and theirs.

In an era of increasing choice and regulation, all customers – corporate, institutional and retail – are demanding greater value from financial services. They expect greater agility, innovation, integration and security than ever before.

We help our customers to break the shackles of closed, legacy systems that limit transparency, block innovation and ignore vast amounts of data. This transformation helps businesses to accelerate growth, improve customer experience, optimize cost and mitigate risk, unleashing a world of opportunities and progress for people and businesses everywhere.

We bring deep expertise and unrivaled breadth and depth of pre-integrated solutions spanning retail banking, transaction banking, lending, and treasury and capital markets. With a global footprint and the broadest set of financial software solutions available on the market Finastra combines $2.1 billion in revenues, 10,000 employees and over 9,000 customers, including 48 of the top 50 banks globally.

Finastra. The future of finance is open.

MISYS

D+H

A leading financial technology provider that the world's financial institutions rely on to help them grow and succeed. Its global payments, lending and financial solutions are trusted by nearly 8,000 banks, specialty lenders, community banks, credit unions, governments and corporations.

We are global

We revel in global knowledge sharing, diversity and opportunity. With incredible talent in more than 40 countries around the world, it is hard not to get inspired.

We collaborate

The more we connect and share knowledge with each other, the more nimble we are. Whether it is in a collaboration hub or globally through virtualization, we are one team sharing in a wealth of knowledge, passion and creativity.

We are agile

Our Agile Workforce program = mobility, flexibility and virtualization. Our employees are empowered to provide their most meaningful contribution in a manner that makes sense for their role and their life.

We are curious

The world is changing rapidly and we’re always looking for new and better ways to help our clients grow, compete and optimize their business.

We understand our customers

Our people are at the heart of our ability to deeply understand the markets and customers we serve, and to create insightful innovation that grows our customers' business.

We start with people

All employees, in every role and at every level, are expected to demonstrate leadership. For Finastra, this isn’t a single attribute, but rather the sum of a number of qualities that exemplify how we work at Finastra.

    Pros

    Finastra is making a lot of positive changes for its employees such as completely renovating our offices to be state of the art workplaces. They also have lots of events for employees related to corporate social responsibility that are both charitable and fun.

    Cons

    It is a constantly shifting environment so job security is low. Whatever can be done in a low cost country is being shifted overseas, but that is not unique to Finastra.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your managers to allow decisions to be made directly by their employees. Don’t reward micromanagement - it’s demotivating.
