Technology / What is the right Fintech organisation for you?
June 22, 2016
Fintech is a growing sector in the technology-driven revolution. BPS World is currently involved in supporting a global Fintech company in several global locations including Poland, Czech Republic, Latvia, and Latin America.
It is an interesting time for the Fintech candidate and their experience of the industry.
The Fintech sector is a fast-paced, ambitious environment which requires a progressive attitude and continuous self-development with regards to the latest technologies. It is an emerging, globally recognised field, and an important question the candidate needs to ask is which type of organisation is more favourable to join? Are you interested in joining a start-up or an established company with a global presence? Both types of organisations have positives but which one is the best fit for the candidate?
If we use Poland as an example, a recent article by Alison Coleman called “Poland on Track to Becoming a Major European Tech Start-up Hub” suggests that this country might become “Europe’s new growth engine”. source:http://www.forbes.com/sites/alisoncoleman/2016/05/20/poland-on-track-to-becoming-a-major-european-tech-startup-hub/#3e03cc2f431b. According to the 2015 Compass Start-up Ecosystem Ranking report, Poland is ranked in the top 20. The article also refers to the exciting fact that within Poland’s 2,900 start-ups, 39% of these were related to software development. Coleman indicates that the focus is moving from start-ups to scalable start-ups. If you a fast-paced environment and the buzz of a start-up environment but not comfortable in a less structured environment, joining an already globally established, scalable start-up could be an option for you.
Globally the need for technically skilled candidates is much greater than the number of those looking for new opportunities, therefore candidates are in a strong position to choose and make decisions. Language skills are unlikely to cause significant barriers into Fintech organisations as in these countries English is used widely among IT specialists.
As a candidate it is important to make a good career choice and invest the right amount of energy in exploring opportunities in depth and selecting the most relevant ones. This is a lot easier when you have the right recruitment partner next to you who can guide you with the right values in the recruitment business.
