FinTech: tools for a top-tier investment bank

We are working with one of the biggest and most innovative Tier-1 financial institution and the project consists of one of the largest Scala codebases in the world.


Our work was mainly related to building a high-scale, high-availability data platform that handles a large chunk of backend data processing. The whole solution was backed by hundreds of SQL and NoSQL db instances and Kafka servers distributed in at least three data centers (US, EU, Asia). The platform was one of the main tools for hundreds/thousands of developers within the client’s organization and had to work with very strict QoS.

From a technical perspective it was built with:

  • Scala (and lots of it – one of the biggest existing Scala projects in the world)
  • various SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Kafka
  • Akka
  • AWS (read-only parts)
  • Zookeeper

We’re working holistically on the platform doing feature development, on-going maintenance, and on-call support.

The value which we created for the customer is reflected in the relationship which has been ongoing for over 5 years now, and the ever-growing size of our team. Together we will make sure our customer remains a market leader and  one of the biggest innovators in the industry.

Piotr, Head of the Team
