6 companies that need your programming skills right now

You’ve started chipping away at those New Year resolutions and now that your resume is updated, it’s time to start applying for a job you’ll love.

The world of FinTech (financial technology) is growing fast and 2016 is predicted to be another pivotal year (which we already knew). FinTech isn’t just big banks… there are a ton of high-energy startups emerging as well.

The companies below are all in the industry, and hiring like crazy right now (and all on untapt).


commonbond-logoDo you want your code to have a real, lasting impact on an individual’s life? CommonBond wants to fix the broken student lending market with lower interest rates, state-of-the-art technology and customer advocacy. They fund loans for students with higher than average credit scores, but they give back to the world by funding a year of education abroad for each student in need they fully fund.

This startup was founded in 2011 and is hiring for their Manhattan office. They also provide unlimited snacks, so you’ll never find yourself staring at a vending machine wishing you had one more dime.


Ever wonder what it would be like to work for a startup that was not only successful, but has a global impact? BATS saw a stagnant and difficult-to-enter securities market. So they changed it, bringing innovation, speed and performance to its members. Their goal is to make markets better for all investors and over the last ten years they have evolved into a global operator of financial markets.

If you are sick of the hustle and bustle of the city, you might be excited to hear that BATS is hiring for its Overland Park, Kansas location (which, contrary to popular belief, is actually pretty cool).


Looking for a startup office with shuffleboard and beer, and a lot less risk than working out of your neighbor’s garage? Consider Taulia. Established in 2009, the business has thrived and is growing rapidly at a rate of 300%. Their payment solutions are winning international recognition and the company counts Coca-Cola and Pfizer among its clients.

Consider landing in one of the hottest cities for startups – they’re hiring for their office San Francisco.

Swift Capital

Swift Capital helps small businesses grow by providing them funding. They assess risk very differently from traditional banks – by focusing on the strength of the business rather than the credit score. The business was recognized in the Inc 5000 in 2014 and looks for passion and creativity in its recruits.

Interested in a great cost of living and a being a short drive from mountains? Swift Capital is hiring just outside of Philadelphia.


If you’re part sleuth and part hero, you should consider working with Decryptex’s engineering team. This close-knit group is made up of top tier talent that uses big data to detect fraud. The company is growing fast and is just over a year old, which puts you on the ground floor of one of FinTech’s most innovative firms.

Decryptex is hiring for their office located in the heart of New York City’s financial district.


Recently recognized as a finance and consulting “Best Place to Work,” JDX offers training and support throughout your time at the organization. This Financial Times top 20 consulting firm is looking for high performers who will thrive in their culture of achievement.

JDX’s FinTech portfolio provides data mining and risk model assessment for their clients, as well as regulatory analysis and software resources. JDX is hiring for their offices in mid-town Manhattan.
