Focus on back-end in app development
Back-end does to apps what back office does to businesses: it ensures dynamic data flow and smooth operation of all customer-facing elements. Without a solid base of server-side code and database management, the user interface cannot process any incoming requests.
Although invisible to users, back-end development has direct impact on app performance, security, and the overall user experience. Most of system architecture and app logic is also rooted in the back-end and, as such, it forms the foundation of a solid development process.
Understanding the role of back-end in FinTech software development requires in-depth knowledge of financial processes and technological mastery to digitalize them.

Custom back-end system development
Before the team can roll up their sleeves to start coding, we need to define both functional and non-functional product requirements. To understand the product inside out, we define the scope of work, establish acceptance criteria, and prepare UI/UX design in the form of mockups and visuals.
Scrum is our go-to method for effective collaboration, but for small projects (up to 3 months) we may also switch to Kanban. Whatever the scope, the team uses proven measurement techniques, such as scoping by story points or story points burndown per sprint, to determine development velocity and plan reliably.
Features of your application are thoroughly checked and analysed from all angles using top industry practices. These include: multiple types of tests, code reviews, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Deployment. Thanks to smart resource reallocation, you can scale your team size according to the current needs.
Code & Pepper developers are skilled in a number of technologies best suited for back-end software development. Flexible development plans enable us to support you with different technologies in optimal proportions: we can engage a team member part-time or full-time, depending on the demand.
One team policy
From day one, you can expect full transparency. Every resource produced by Code & Pepper in connection with the project will be shared with you, including code repository, team members’ timesheets, budget flow, risk logs, and source graphic files. Open communication is key: both on the client and team side.
NoMo app is a slick mobile solution for personal finance management created by DirectID (formerly The ID Co.): a UK-based leader in open banking and a long-term client of Code & Pepper. With NoMo, users receive custom recommendations for daily spending limits and can closely monitor their financial performance. Banking jargon is replaced by personalised in-app communication, helping users adopt healthier spending habits in a motivating and playful manner.
Code & Pepper was tasked with a complex refactoring of the PFM application.
Hexagonal architecture was implemented to achieve better support for cloud infrastructure, while rewriting back-end code using .Net enabled seamless integration with Open Banking API and easier maintenance. A dedicated iOS developer gave NoMo an extra performance boost by fixing issues with Objective-C.
