    Pros

    CurrencyCloud invests time and effort into building community. Every week they run a variety of open social events (online) and knowledge transfer sessions — more than I can ever attend. I doubt you are going to be bored. It has a plethora of opportunities for new technology innovations. People I spoke with, acknowledge if past decisions haven't worked well sincerely. In my team, people are open and ready to listen if you want to pitch an idea. The company runs various initiatives to look after the well-being of employees, such as fitness classes and mental health support. A rare gem: HR team is highly-effective and always pleasure to communicate.

    Cons

    Various ceremonies and processes related to software delivery are out-of-date and ineffective. Good opportunity to change it.

    Pros

    This company is the nicest place I’ve work for, they truly care about people. The recruitment and onboarding process was smooth. The business is top notch, I’ve been working on a lot of interesting projects with very smart and approachable people. There’s a lot of autonomy and work life balance is great. Perks are the one expected from a company this size (health insurance, breakfast, snacks, Friday drinks etc).

    Cons

    None that i can think of

    Great company and mix of people

    27 Oct 2016 - Lead Software Engineer in London, England, England

    Pros

    - Continuously improving the platform and workflows of the business - High focus on delivering quality - Great customer service team - Relation managers go the extra mile for clients - Employees of the company genuinely care about the values and goals set by the company

    Cons

    - Technical debt still exists from when the company first formed, this is being reduced month by month. - Test suite takes a long time to run which can be incredibly frustrating for a developer as they require quick feedback on whether their new code has introduced any regression bugs. - Test suite doesn't quite cover the full scope of each part of the system making it tough for QA to pick up on potential issues before releases. This slows down the release process significantly. - Local, Test, Demonstration and Production environments all differ slightly making it difficult to have full confidence in what is being delivered. This has significantly improved since when I first started 6 years ago and is still improving. - A little behind the curve with the technology used but are currently in the process of revamp.

    Potential but rotten leadership

    22 May 2018 - Developer

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Currencycloud are an exciting fintech with lots of opportunity to grow as a company.

    Cons

    Currenycloud tries to promote an engineering culture where everyone can make a difference. But this is ruined by the CTO who doesn’t believe in this culture, who has been caught lying on several occassions, and is frequently telling team members not to contradict him infront of others. There are some very important leaders with good ideas in the business, but they are being wasted due to the CTO’s ego and old fashioned (corporate), blame-driven micro-management style. Currencycloud has quickly become a dysfunctional organisation where people are more interested in protecting themselves rather than doing the right thing. There needs to be a significant change at the top so that Currencycloud doesn’t become just another finance company with a ineffective IT department drowning in red tape.

    Pros

    Nice swanky office. Good central location.

    Management team have no clue what they're doing. Company is going nowhere fast. No career progression. If you want a forward moving career don't join this company. Also has an inexperienced HR team.
