I joined Backbase because it was the perfect place to combine my passion for technology and my love for finance while having the opportunity to improve peoples lives and have fun while doing it. To me working at Backbase means working in a diverse environment where you get freedom to be an entrepreneur in your own role.
I had a great recruitment experience and now work with a team of ambitious and smart people, that are team players by heart. We of course know how to party and celebrate life.
I relocated to Amsterdam from Scotland to join Backbase, so I was nervous about the scale of change that I’d signed up for. I also moved here alone, so my biggest concern was making myself at home and fitting in. Everything went really well! Everyone in the company was incredibly welcoming and helpful, in the office and out, and I quickly started to feel at ease. Backbase has a great social scene, which helped me get to know people and settle in to the city. Everyone works hard, and knows how to have fun!
I joined Backbase because I recognized their initiative to deliver a superior financial product to their clients without sacrificing functionality or UI. Once demoing the Backbase software it was apparent to me they weren’t just delivering a product, but instead innovating a solution that would help drive the landscape of web/mobile banking, wealth management, insurance, and more. I’m humbled to assist with the vision of the company and work closely with some of the most talented people.
Backbase’s true value is it’s people. The Backbase community of individuals is a tireless and driven group that simple put: gets shit done. This mindset and work ethic is the foundation from which Backbase stands. We have each other’s backs and support one another during the most difficult hours of a project. The people of Backbase motivate me and drive me to improve myself within this organization and in my professional landscape.
After reviewing the Backbase website and the product info I saw a lot of potential in helping financial institutions build websites quicker. This is why I applied at Backbase. I was impressed by the team structures and how the company delivered the product to clients and felt. I would learn a lot in how software is delivered. The training was also a plus when discussing with recruiter.
Since joining Backbase, I have been exposed to many different technology pieces, front end and backend and how they integrate to create a product. I think understanding the big picture of software development is key in my growth as a professional. I have enjoyed working with front end developers as well as R&D to understand how the GUI portion of product is built as learning of new announcements from R&D concerning product enhancements and fixes.
I was excited for the opportunity to work for Backbase, an Amsterdam based company, as I had heard that European companies were more worker-centric. I’m happy to say, that I have found this to be true of Backbase. Backbase very much wants to make sure that our employees are happy, fulfilled and try to discourage ‘burn-out’ as much as possible, as a happy employee equals a satisfied employee. While we do work very hard, we play hard as well, whether it be company sanctioned outings and events, playing Nintendo or giant Jenga at the office when we need to take a break from things, or just having a beer together in the afternoons.
Everyone here is very much part of a team, and we all work well together and help encourage everyone to grow and be the best they can be.
It’s great and rewarding working for a company where you’re appreciated.
Since Backbase is a company closely related to the financial industry, and because I thought banking was boring, I was afraid my job was going to be less than exciting. The opposite was true! Backbase provides opportunities to people who are open for it. If you have a good idea, there’s nobody stopping you. Even better, there are a lot of people willing to help you achieve it. Within Backbase, there’s a culture of getting things done, and it’s nice to see how something complex can be done relatively easily when people take responsibility and do their thing.
