All You Need to Know About Tech Positions in Finance

The key to staying relevant during this current pandemic is to adapt to the situation and understand that change might be a good thing in the long run.

Even though these might be difficult times, you should not be giving up on your search for the perfect job. With every door that closes, another opens, and it’s no exception here: many industries are booming and companies hiring as a result! The key to staying relevant during this current pandemic is to adapt to the situation and understand that change might be a good thing in the long run.

If you’re still on the hunt for new opportunities, then look no further than Prive. A fintech startup that was named in 2019 by SCMP as one of the top 4 fastest-growing companies in the Greater Bay Area, Prive is truly revolutionizing the wealth management world. Between working together with well-established institutions like Credit Suisse and having offices in over 5 countries in Asia alone, Prive is certainly on the up and up, and this pandemic has not slowed its stride.

Have we piqued your interest? Want to know more about what a career at Prive entails? Josef Puchinger, the Chief Technology Officer at Prive tells us all about it in our podcast series Happyer Work, Happyer Life. In each episode, we sit down with industry leaders from all walks of life to discuss specific, hard-hitting questions designed to give you, the job seeker, an edge above the rest of your competitors and a glimpse into each company’s specific culture and workstyle.

So who exactly is Prive looking for and what is their next stage in their company progression?

  • Prive is looking to enter the next generation of its technology.

When first starting out, Prive sought to understand what clients need and develop something specific for them that can be put out into the market quickly. Now they are looking to elevate their technology to a completely new level and really focus on becoming a highly customised wealth management service platform.

  • Prive needs top talent!

To achieve this illustrious goal, Prive is looking for top talent to become creative leads and implement their vision and this could be you! They have positions open in various different departments and positions: from infrastructure to development and quality assurance. No matter if you are a software engineer, prefer a more HR role, or are looking for internships, Prive has the openings for you.

And if you weren’t excited enough, here are several interesting projects that Prive is currently developing which you might get the chance to work on and add your vision:

  • Building customisation hooks

After learning from their previous products and technology, Prive now understands where best to build customisation hooks into their products to improve their functionality without making the product seem more superficial. However, this requires a lot of technical skills that without you cannot be brought into reality.

  • Combining product data and real-world data

In order to increase their support for the wealth advisor Prive wants to be able to combine data mined from the product and external data to create more robust proposals through automation and better inform their customers. This reflects their company vision: to help everyone gain equal access to wealth management regardless of their background. This is only possible if wealth management becomes cheaper as a result of greater technological support, which you can have a hand in developing!

As you can see, opportunities are all around you even when it may seem like it isn’t. We recommend listening to our entire interview with Josef to learn more about the tech industry during the pandemic and how to stand out from the crowd when applying for tech positions.
