SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Feb. 25, 2019 — Finicity, a leading provider of real-time financial data access and insights, was recently named as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. The awards program was created in 2017 and is a project of SourceMedia and Best Companies Group.
This annual survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. Companies recognized on this year’s list operate in and serve companies and consumers in a wide range of financial services, including banking and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory.
“Here at Finicity, we’re on a mission to empower consumers to make smarter financial decisions through better access and utilization of their financial data,” said Steve Smith, CEO and co-founder. “It’s a true honor to be recognized as one of the best places to work in financial technology. We’re very proud of the culture we’ve created here.”
The 2019 list included 50 companies and was published by SourceMedia brands American Banker, National Mortgage News, PaymentsSource, Financial Planning and Digital Insurance.
“Every one of the companies named to SourceMedia’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology list demonstrated a culture focused on supporting and engaging employees,” said Richard Melville, Group Editorial Director at SourceMedia.
To be considered for participation, companies had to be an organization that provides technology products, services or solutions that enable the delivery of financial services with at least 15 employees working in the U.S. and been in business a minimum of one year.
Companies from across the U.S. entered a two-part survey process to determine SourceMedia’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final ranking.
