Move fast and don’t break things: product development in fintech.
Move fast and break things became part of Peek’s lexicon years ago when Facebook was firing on all cylinders. While delivering value to customers should be a key driver of the speed with which we work, this catchy tagline doesn’t apply well to the world of fintech. When things break in fintech, payments don’t settle, funds go missing, and hackers ride off into the sunset with the money we’re all supposed to protect. During this session, we’ll crack open product development best practices and apply them to a world that requires us to move fast and not break things. Attendees will walk away with actionable lessons they can apply immediately to their daily product work. Better products will get built. Payments data will be more secure, reporting more clear, and we’ll sleep easier.
