Back-End Development Services for Rock-Solid FinTech Apps

The must-have checklist for FinTech products involves many elements, but optimal technology stack for back-end development is always indispensable.
With an expert team at Code & Pepper, you can be sure your app runs smoothly on the inside and outside.

Back-end development company on the front line of the FinTech revolution

Back-end does to applications what back office does to businesses: it ensures dynamic data flow and smooth operation of all customer-facing elements. In other words, without a solid base of server-side code and database management, user interface is helpless and cannot process any incoming requests. That’s why, although invisible to users, back-end development has direct impact on application performance, security, and the overall user experience. Most of system architecture and application 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 digitize them. That’s why joining forces with a seasoned back-end development company gives you a unique competitive advantage. From designing and building MVPs to refining and optimising existing systems, Code & Pepper can become your strategic back up. Additional benefits include product development agility and best software engineering practices, such as Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Infrastructure as Code (together with tools like Terraform or CloudFormation).

NoMo

Mobile app development with extra focus on back-end code structure

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 complex refactoring of the 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.

Back-end security in FinTech products

As far as code is concerned, software back-end is where the magic happens. However, this behind-the-scenes environment is also the first line of defence against cyber attacks. Security breaches and data leaks are among the biggest threats affecting both business owners and end users. This is what places back-end system development at the centre of an effective security policy and risk management. Implementing adequate authentication protocols, access control and tools for safeguarding sensitive data are just a few in a series of necessary steps towards regulatory compliance. Once your FinTech company reaches that point, there is nothing stopping you from leveraging back-end software development to win customers’ trust and deliver supreme user experience.

Custom approach to back-end system development

Management

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 (i.e. scoping by story points, story points burndown per sprint) to determine development velocity and plan reliably.

Requirements

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.

Development process

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.

Technology

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.
