Financial technology has changed significantly in the last decade, and companies both new and old are adapting to that change.
Newer companies like TransferWise and Stripe are often called “fintech” companies–short for “financial technology”. Established companies like banks may not refer to themselves as fintech companies, but the way that they do business is changing, due to technological advances like blockchain.
Ed Donner is the CEO of untapt, a hiring platform for fintech companies, and he joins the show to talk about the fundamental changes that are causing so many new fintech companies to be created. Before starting untapt, Ed worked at JP Morgan Chase, where he spent much of his time leading engineers and hiring engineers, which makes him well-equipped to build a platform for hiring software engineers into fintech companies, driven by machine intelligence.
