Our Fintech clients range from global, household names to four founders with a sketch on a napkin. Starting from ‘square-one’ regulatory filings, to scaling up technical organizations of hundreds.
Lending Club was blessed with fast growth, but with technology and organization scalability issues. The company needed to build a mission-critical SaaS platform, while hiring experienced software managers and programmers from San Francisco’s highly competitive software labor market for its onsite agile teams.
Lending Club hired Telegraph Hill Software as its Software Catalyst℠. We conducted a thorough review of their existing stack, documenting the connections between source code, user functionality, and technical operations, and identified architectural limits. We then became their premier partner in rapidly building technology staff, creating elite consultant teams for development, QA, operations, and information security.
Today our consultant teams continue to work side-by-side with their growing technology organization, and many Telegraph Hill Software alumni are Lending Club managers and lead engineers.
“Telegraph Hill’s managers excel at evaluating top technical talent across the entire spectrum of skills necessary for a rapidly-growing, elite SaaS firm like ours. Although they are not a staffing firm, they’ve assisted us in building a great team.”John MacIlwaine
Lendeavor is the modern lender to medical practices, an innovative and successful fintech founded in 2014. Though person-to-person interactions are still the most critical factor in winning the trust of their clients, their client-facing web presence extends that trust and internal systems enable effective and efficient interactions.
Lendeavor’s challenge was to scale up their business by expanding their product functionality. Their highly distributed engineering team needed to work closely with Product Management and Executive leadership representing their engineering capabilities and capacity in-person and onsite at Lendeavor’s offices in San Francisco.
Telegraph Hill Software provided just the right person to be their technical management lynchpin with just the right technical skills, great communication skills, in San Francisco and on a contract-to-hire basis.
We presented only a single, highly qualified candidate so that Lendeavor’s time was used most efficiently. We offered a contract-to-hire arrangement so that both Lendeavor and their future Director could reduce hiring risk.
fintechbank.co founders intend to address banking for under served commercial customer segments through their compliance-as-a-service platform mounted on a contemporary core banking infrastructure offering cash management, deposit services and risk management services made possible by an unprecedented depth of knowledge about their unique customers.
The first challenge was to convince U.S. regulators to grant their new bank charter request. That meant including technical architecture and implementation plans that addressed the core banking platform and custom AI capabilities to assure regulators that fintechbank.co could operate responsibly particularly in the areas of know-your-customer and anti-money laundering functionality.
Telegraph Hill Software consultants with deep expertise in core banking platforms and AI development plus decades of experience in financial services, particularly in commercial banking and regulatory chartering processes helped fintechbank.co’s leadership team complete OCC regulatory filing within 60 days.
