Celebrating International Women’s Day with Les Femmes de FinDEVr

InternationalWomensDayFinDEVr_logo
The first FinDEVr in 2014 featured one woman on stage. Our second developer’s conference, a year later, featured five.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, here’s a toast to the women who are helping shape the technology that affects our lives every day. From the coding workbench to the business development office, as software engineers and CEOs, women play a vital role in building a fintech that works for everyone. And FinDEVr is honored to be a showcase for their innovations.

PamelaRice_OnDeck_FinDEVr2015Pamela Rice, SVP Technology, OnDeck: “Having self-contained teams is a huge part of the win for us. Having a team that could do security, dev ops, product, QA … all of these facets on one team together means that that team can scale and move pretty quickly and have a winning model.”

“Fueling Small Business Growth Through Technology Innovation,” FinDEVr San Francisco 2015.

Rachel_Nienaber_CurrencyCloud_FinDEVr2015Rachel Nienaber, VP Engineering, Currency Cloud: “We don’t have a dedicated API team. We prefer to make sure that all of the developers have experience across the full stack of our application. This way the developers are exposed to absolutely everything, and get a very good understanding of how the system works, and it also gives them the chance to experience all of the different items, from the fixed gateway all the way to the API layer.”

“Currency Cloud API Re-Build” FinDEVr San Francisco 2015.

Emily_Auer_Apex_FinDevr2015Emily Auer, Business Development, Apex Clearing: “We champion the evolution of the financial services industry, and we specifically build technology to power the firms that transform this space. We bring you faster, less restrictive, and less obtrusive methods for financial institutions to interact with their customers. Apex enables fintech firms.”

“Fund, Trade, Invest … Instantaneously,” FinDEVr San Francisco 2015.

ElizabethGunderson_Yodlee_FinDEVr2015Elizabeth Gunderson, Senior Manager, Customer Success, Yodlee Interactive: “Yodlee has over 20 million paid users. Everyone of you in this room has likely used Yodlee in some form or fashion. Whether that’s through your financial institution or through one of our API partners like Credit Karma. We make over 40 million API calls a day. That’s huge.”

“Drive Financial Innovation Faster With Yodlee Financial Data Platform and Rapid Development Kit,” FinDEVr San Francisco 2015.

EmilySilberstein_Intuit_FinDEVr2015Emily Silberstein, Head of Financial Data Services (CAD), Intuit Developer Group: “It’s an amazing opportunity because we have tens of millions of Intuit customers who are using these APIs so we are very much ‘dog-fooding’ our own data and our own APIs in letting third parties build and grow our ecosystem.”

“Intuit’s Financial Data Services,” FinDEVr San Francisco 2015.

CatheryneNicholson_BlockCypher_FinDEVrAnd a special note for Catheryne Nicholson (left), CEO and co-founder of BlockCypher. A FinDEVr San Francisco 2015 alum, the company helps business build reliable blockchain applications.

BlockCypher calls itself “like Amazon Web Services for block chains,” and is based in Redwood City, California.
