    The Dutch culture of giving direct feedback can rub some people the wrong way if they aren't used to that style of communication.

    Backbase is filled with passionate and driven employees all aiming for the same goal. I love the flexible, self-starter nature of the company. When they say self-starter, they really mean it. You truly map your career and are given the tools you need to make the company and yourself successful.

    Cons

    It is a Dutch company so they are very direct with feedback. For some that might not be an ideal style of communication

    I have been working at Backbase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The word 'disruptor' gets thrown around a lot in the tech space but what Backbase is bringing to the table in the digital banking industry is truly a game-changer. I have worked here for over a year and every client meeting I've been told that we are nothing like our competitors or other vendors. This helps to create a passion for your work but also brings a challenge to get people to think differently. Fun/collaborative team atmosphere in the Boise office and throughout the entire organization. Everyone is passionate about the product and the strategy we take to the market. Benefits/pay above the industry average. Promotional opportunities if you want them. Global and domestic travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Strong growth brings growing pains. Must possess skills to drive your own solutions to problems.

    I have been working at Backbase full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Backbase has provided me the flexibility, freedom, and opportunity to grow in more ways than I have ever expected professionally. The Backbase digital banking platform is widely regarded as the leader globally and there is a large focus from the company on the North American market. The Backbase culture is derived from our global presence and large diversity in personas who work within the company. The culture is also one that promotes each individual to use their knowledge, skills, and abilities in unique ways.

    Cons

    Backbase is not a place to work if you want to be comfortable and have everything handed to you. You must be of the entrepreneurial mindset who enjoys figuring out answers to challenging situations. Working in a remote office also poses unique challenges including the time zone differences with other offices.
