OUR STORY

OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY BY PROVIDING EASY TO IMPLEMENT, MODERN AND SCALABLE TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS

HISTORY

The Scandinavian financial industry was lacking something. It was lacking people who could see the big picture of investments from a holistic perspective and yet could deep-dive into the nitty-gritty details of financial instruments and business processes.

We decided to put together a team that could do just that, while being able to translate those insights into great technology.

IDEA

Having seen endless hours spent shovelling data from one system to another, IT-departments allocating their coders to do integration work instead of business enhancing feature development and a lack of flexibility in handling multiple asset classes and instrument types in existing systems, we realized that if we could create something that solved those problems we could truly help actors in the financial markets.

PRODUCT

We decided to build a product that could handle integration work in a generic way, minimizing the workload for fetching data, could store any type of asset and transaction, was built to scale using micro-services, reactive streams, and responsive UI:s built on modern frameworks and could easily handle adding new portfolio analytics functionality.

OUR CORE VALUES

OUR CORE VALUES ARE CENTRAL TO THE PRINCIPLES OF SWIMBIRD AND ARE DEFINING HOW WE WORK AS A TEAM AND WITH OUR CLIENTS

PASSION

WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AND OUR DEVELOPERS THRIVE KNOWING THAT WE ARE USING THE BEST TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS.

WE TRULY BELIEVE THAT WE CAN MAKE THIS INDUSTRY BETTER BY THE VAST EXPERIENCE AND INSIGHTS WE HAVE FROM THE FINANCIAL SECTOR

BALANCE

JUST AS WE DEVELOP SOFTWARE LEAN AND AGILE WE APPLY THAT PHILOSOPHY TO OUR BODIES AND MINDS.

WE HAVE INCORPORATED PERSONAL TRAINING TO ACHIEVE HIGHER ENERGY AND GREATER RESULTS. THROUGH OUR TRAINING SESSIONS WE GET STRONGER AND MORE CREATIVE AS A TEAM.

A KEY TO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE AND BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL TEAM LIES IN THE ABILITY TO MAINTAIN GOOD WORK LIFE BALANCE WHILE CARING FOR OUR BODIES AND MINDS.

RESULTS

We are always focused on results and take great pleasure in seeing that our clients benefit from what we deliver.

Starting from a blank page or with something that has been in place for a while but needs improvement are both exciting opportunities for us.

We take responsibility throughout the process to ensure a great client experience.

INTEGRITY

INTEGRITY FOR US IS ABOUT BEING PROFESSIONAL, TRANSPARENT, HONEST AND TRUE WITH OUR CLIENTS, ALWAYS FOCUSING ON CREATING GREAT CUSTOMER VALUE AND EXPERIENCE.

STRONG INTEGRITY IS ONE OF OUR CORNERSTONES, KEEPING OUR CLIENTS AT THE HEART OF OUR BUSINESS.
